Evaluation of Periapical Lesions and Their Association with Maxillary Sinus Abnormalities on Cone-beam Computed Tomographic Images
Periapical inflammation is often responsible for distinct maxillary sinus (MS) changes. This retrospective, cross-sectional study evaluated the association between the clinical characteristics of periapical lesions (presence, size, and distance) in maxillary posterior teeth and the presence of sinus abnormalities by evaluating cone-beam computed tomographic (CBCT) images obtained from an archived collection.
At the conclusion, participants should be able to:
- Detect the presence of periapical lesions on tomographic images and analyze their relationship with maxillary sinus abnormalities.
- Evaluate whether the size of the periapical lesion determines the presence of maxillary sinus abnormalities.
- Discuss the importance of the distance between the periapical lesion edge and the maxillary sinus floor and its consequences.
