Anterior nasal spine

Anterior Nasal Spine

Nasal septum

Nasal Septum

Nasal fossae

Nasal Fossae

Incisive foramen

1 - Incisive Foramen

2 - Nasal septum

3 - Zygoma

Incisive Foramen

Nose border alar cartilage

Nose Border & Alar Cartilage

Soft tissue shadows

Lip Line

Nasolabial fold

Soft tissue Shadows

Incisive fossa canine fossa

White arrows denote radiolucent area of incisive/canine fossa

Black arrows delineate margin of alar cartilage of the nose

Incisive Fossa & Canine Fossa

Maxillary sinus

Maxillary Sinus

Antral y inverted y

Antral Y/ Inverted Y

Malar process zygomatic arch

Malar Process/Zygomatic Arch

1-White arrows denote the malar process

2-Black arrows delineate the lower border of the zygomatic arch

Maxillary tuberosity

Review of radiographic anatomy

Genial tubercles

Lingual foramen

Mental Ridge

Review of radiographic anatomy

Genial tubercles

Lingual foramen

Mental Ridge

Review of radiographic anatomy

nutrient canals

mandibular tori

Mental foramen

Mental Foramen

  • White arrows outline the mental foramen.

  • Black arrows outline apical pathology which is secondary to pulpal exposure from coronal caries

Review of radiographic anatomy

Mylohyoid line

Review of radiographic anatomy

  • White arrows indicate external oblique ridge

  • Black arrows delineated internal oblique ridge

Panoramic anatomy

Panoramic Anatomy

Concepts of normal panoramic anatomy

Concepts of Normal Panoramic Anatomy

Concept 1

Structures are flattened and spread out

Desirable: mandible, mandibular canal etc.

Undesirable: nasal turbinate and meati

Concept 2

Midline structures may be projected in two ways:

As single, midline structures

As bilateral structures

Concept 2

Concept 2

Zone of Single Images:

Single midline structures in this zone will appear on radiograph as single midline structures, e.g. incisor teeth, nasal fossa, anterior nasal spine, soft tissue of nose.

Zone of double Images:

Single midline structures in this zone will appear on the radiograph as bilateral (double) structures,

e.g. hyoid bone, palate, cervical spine

*Double images occur because the object lies between the center of rotation and the film twice during one exposure cycle.

Review of radiographic anatomy

Formation of Double Image

Review of radiographic anatomy

Hard Palate

Hyoid Bone

Concept 3

Concept 3

  • Ghost Images are formed

Review of radiographic anatomy



Concept 31

Concept 3

Ghost of contra-lateral ramus

Ghost of Hard Palate

Concept 4

Concept 4

Soft tissue outlines are visualized

Examples: lips, nasolabial fold, dorsum of

tongue, soft palate, ear and ear lobe.

Concept 41

Concept 4

Dorsum of tongue

Soft Palate

Nasolabial fold

Concept 5

Concept 5

Air spaces are visualized

  • Examples: maxillary sinus, nasal fossa, air space above tongue, naso-oro-hypopharynx

Review of radiographic anatomy

Posterior Pharyngeal wall

Palatoglossal air space

Review of radiographic anatomy

Nasopharyngeal air space

Glossopharyngeal air space

Concept 51

Concept 5

Platoglossal Airspace

Maxillary sinuses

Naso-pharyngeal Airspace

Concept 6

Concept 6

Areas adjacent to tooth bearing areas are visualized

  • Example: condyle, coronoid process, zygomatic arch, maxillary sinus, nasal fossa, orbit, styloid process, hyoid bone.
