Efficacy of Beam Computer Tomography (CBCT) in Diagnosis of Disease Lesions in Paranasal Sinuses

Edward Kijak

Abstract

Different techniques of X-ray imaging often confirm the suspected diagnosis, but not infrequently redirect the diagnostic process in other areas. A modern ultrahigh-resolution volumetric tomography, called a cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) also, is one of the most innovative technique and able to visualise these anatomical structures that conventional techniques are not. A differential diagnosis of TMJ dysfunction is particularly difficult due to the quantity of factors that influence the generation of symptoms. Laying on of symptoms that mask the main disease means that frequently, without additional examinations, it is not possible, in an univocal way, to describe the type and extent of this disease. The study assesses the usefulness of volumetric tomography ( CBCT ) in an accidental detecting in the maxillary lesions sinuses of a temporomandibular joints dysfunction. The analysis was performed on the base of 249 studies of volumetric tomography. The face part of the skull was made by the a camera with a large imaging field (FOV) 17 cm x 23 cm i-CAT Next Generation (ISI). It was found that a significant number of patients (almost half) with TMD have the changes in paranasal sinuses. Based on the observations, the relevance and legitimacy of tested technique helping in stomatognathic system diseases diagnosis was analysed.
