Course Goals and Objectives:

It is common in dentistry to recognize findings on radiographs that are not related to the main clinical indication of imaging. In this lecture, I will discuss the variants of normal anatomy that can mimic pathology, lesions that can be found incidentally on dental radiographs and criteria for proper decision making in diagnosis of these incidental findings. This presentation will review the radiographic features of different types of pathology including inflammatory lesions, cysts, benign fibro-osseous lesions, benign and malignant neoplasms and will provide alternate strategies to make the correct differential diagnoses

Learning objectives:
1. Ability to identify common incidental findings in dental radiographs
2. Discuss factors involved in decision making of differential diagnosis of different types of radiographic incidental findings.
