Table 3 Changes in the detection rates of pneumatization, septa, or SOLs according to the distributions in the maxillary sinus on panoramic radiographs in 61 patients

From: The significance of cone beam computed tomography for the visualization of anatomical variations and lesions in the maxillary sinus for patients hoping to have dental implant-supported maxillary restorations in a private dental office in Japan

Distributions Detection rate of pneumatization (Frequency) Detection rate of septa (Frequency) Detection rate of SOLs (Frequency)
Panoramic radiographs CBCT Panoramic radiographs CBCT Panoramic radiographs CBCT
Alveolar (Foor) 33% (35/107) 36% (38/107) 21% (22/107) 37 (40/107) 18% (19/107) 21% (23/107)
Anterior 6% (6/107) 8% (9/107) 7% (8/107) 14% (15/107) 1% (1/107) 11% (12/107)
Tuber (Posterior) 10% (11/107) 13% (14/107) 3% (3/107) 7% (8/107) 1% (1/107) 5% (6/107)
