Question Answer
T/F: We should take complete set of radiographs on all new patients (in private practice)False (should be based on need to determine diagnosis?)
T/F: We should take new radiographs whenever they are covered by dental insurance, or are due for new ones according to insuranceFalse
What is the most common pathology that we will see on radiographs?Caries (probably followed by periodontitis)
____ ____ can be defined as the ability to see and understand what is revealed by a radiograph.Radiographic Interpretation
Bone pattern of the _____ has a fine lace-like pattern and smaller marrow spacesMaxilla
Bone pattern of the _____ has a ladder-like pattern, fewer and coarse marrow spaces and becomes less pattered apical to the rootsMandivle
______ _____ method: Matching the radiographic picture with a mental picture or with an image in a textbookAunt Minnie method
Lesion found superior to the Inferior Alveolar Canal is most likely _____ in originOdontogenic
Large radiolucency inferior to inferior alveolar canal caused by submandibular gland growing into nerve is called a ____ defectStafne defect
GENERAL RULE: _____ presentations tend to have systemic or hereditary etiologiesMultifocal
The key indicator of a lesion's type and behavior are its _____borders (definition etc)
____ defined margins are associated with slow growing benign and cystic lesionswell defined (distinct margins)
____ defined margins are associated with fast growing, inflammatory and malignant lesionsPoorly defined (indistinct margins)
which is associated with less aggressive benign lesions (uni-locular or multi-locular)Uni-locular
which is Associated with more aggressive lesions (uni-locular or multi-locular)Multi-locular
(benign or malignant) growth tends to displace thingsBenign (example, teeth are altered in orientation)
(benign or malignant) lead to horizontal root resorptionbenign
(benign or malignant) causes spiking of rootsmalignant
Displacement of the Inferior alveolar canal would suggest that a lesion causing it is (benign/malignant)Benign
Indistinct inferior alveolar nerve canal would suggest that the lesion causing it is (benign/malignant)malignant
(benign or malignant) Asymmetric widening of the PDL spaceMalignant
(benign or malignant) onion skin layers of reactive boneBenign
(benign or malignant) cortical perforation, (discontinuous cortical bone with lesion)Malignant
