1. Retained root fragment at site 17
There is a conically shaped radiopacity located within the alveolar process at site 17, which exhibits a density comparable to dentin. A faint periodontal ligament space is evident around this radiopacity. These findings suggest the presence of a retained root fragment. There is no radiographic evidence of inflammatory disease in the adjacent alveolar bone.
2. Possible socket preservation at site 23
There is a region of dense granular bone located within the alveolar process at site 23, which could represent socket preservation material. Correlation with the patient's history is recommended to substantiate this interpretation. Otherwise, the presence of a dense bone island can be considered.
3. Mild mucosal thickening in left maxillary sinus
These sagittal cross-sectional images demonstrate the presence of mild mucositis in the left maxillary sinus, which should not impede a sinus lift procedure.
4. Mild mucosal thickening in right maxillary sinus
These sagittal cross-sectional images demonstrate the presence of mild mucositis in the right maxillary sinus, which should not impede a sinus lift procedure.
5. Concha bullosa
The right middle nasal concha contains air. This represents a concha bullosa. The bilateral ostiomeatal units are patent, which suggests that this is an incidental finding with no clinical significance.
6. Mucosal thickening in sphenoid sinus
Moderate mucosal thickening is present in the sphenoid sinus, which could represent mucositis.
7. Radiolucency in middle cranial fossa: medical referral recommended
There is a moderately well-defined, irregularly shaped radiolucency located within the left middle cranial fossa, which is partially captured in this imaging volume. This entity is located just posterolateral to the sphenoid sinus, and medial to the left Vidian canal. While this could represent an unusual configuration of the left carotid canal, the possibility of pathology needs to be ruled out through further imaging via the patient's physician.
