Event Details

Webinar – Soft tissue calcifications and ossifications in a panoramic radiograph – Diagnostic considerations


Brief summary:

Soft tissue calcifications and ossifications may be incidental findings on panoramic radiographs. Some calcifications can be life-threatening while others require either no intervention or long-term follow-up. How do we accurately interpret these radiopacities on radiographs and appropriately refer for their management? This session will outline the diagnostic considerations for soft tissue radiopacities seen on panoramic radiographs.
