Abstract

This chapter provides information on the radiographic presentation and locations of incidental and pathological findings in cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scans, as well as their clinical implications. The overall goal of the chapter is to enhance the diagnostician's ability to identify incidental lesions and undertake appropriate steps where needed. More specifically, the chapter reviews incidental findings under the categories of (1) intracranial soft tissue calcifications and lesions, (2) extracranial soft tissue calcifications, (3) airway lesions, (4) lesions of the paranasal sinuses and nasal cavity, (5) tooth-related findings and developmental defects of the jaws, (6) TMJ-associated processes, (7) lesions of the cervical spine, and (8) other miscellaneous findings. Each of these sections provides tables summarizing the CBCT presentation, age and gender distribution, and clinical implications, including the recommended follow-up for each CBCT lesion or finding.
