Purpose The purpose of this study was to carry out morpho- cally relevant findings and, due to the low accuracy of the logic and topographic analyses of retromolar canals on cone panoramic radiographs, high-quality tomographic exams beam computerized tomography (CBCT) scans, comparing should always be asked for presurgical treatment planning. findings to others obtained from the corresponding digital panoramic radiographs. . . Keywords Cone-beam computed tomography Mandible Methods Sixty-one CBCT scans were analysed digitally, as Panoramic radiography Oral surgery well as their corresponding digital panoramic radiographs. The prevalence and distribution of these canals, foramen di- ameters, and intraosseous communications were also evaluated. Introduction Results On CBCT scans, we found that 24.6% of individuals had at least one retromolar canal. The mean foramen diameter The triangle-shaped region anteriorly limited by the third in- was slightly higher than 1 mm and we could not determine the ferior molar, medially by the temporal crest, and laterally by intraosseous anatomical connections in most cases.
