CBCT anatomy


2 minute video: Medial displacement of lamina papyracea on CBCT

Ok, so a little slow on making some 2 minute videos so I thought I’d start remembering to post these. This is an incidental finding seen on cone beam CT images.  This will only be an area to evaluate if the scan covers the eyes which if you use a […]


Anatomy Monday: Cervical Vertebra 1 (C1 or Atlas)

Since I showed a case of a posterior cleft of C1 last week I thought I’d follow up with some key anatomy of C1 as seen on cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) images. These are all axial views that have been rotated as such to show the entire ring on […]


Anatomy Monday: Vascular Markings 7

I realize it’s been a while since I’ve posted anatomy so this week I wanted to show a fun case of prominent vascular markings noted in the cranium on a cone beam CT scan.   Check it out below. Note the ‘tree branch’ appearance at the superior aspect of this […]


Anatomy Monday: Gubernaculum Dentis 2

This week I have a case of anatomy that I more commonly see on CBCT images but have occasionally come across on 2D radiographs; the gubernaculum dentis. The gubernaculum dentis is a canal of connective tissue from a developing tooth bud to the overlying mucosa. It presents as a radiolucent […]


Anatomy Monday: Paradoxic Curvature

This week is the last anatomy I’ll be showing from my book (Interpretation Basics of Cone Beam Computed Tomography).  It’s another aspect of the nasal cavity involving the middle concha. Paradoxic curvature is when the curve of the concha is towards the nasal septum instead of the lateral border of […]
