Table 5 Changes in the detection rates of SOLs according to the extent of SOLs 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

Major axis of SOLs in maxillary sinus on CBCT Detection rate of Panoramic radiographs (Frequency)
0 < <=1 mm 20% (1/5)
1 < <=2 mm 0% (0/1)
2 < <=3 mm 25% (1/4)
3 < <=4 mm 50% (1/2)
4 < <=5 mm 33% (1/3)
5 < <=6 mm 50% (3/6)
6 < <=7 mm 60% (3/5)
7 < <=8 mm 67% (4/6)
8 < <=9 mm 50% (1/2)
9 < <=10 mm 25% (1/4)
10 < mm 83% (5/6)
  1. SOL: Space occupying lesion.
  2. CBCT: Cone beam computed tomography.
