Ensure Better Clinical Outcomes and Reduce your Risk!

Endodontic studies generate high resolution scans to capture the relevant features, increasing the potential for missed findings. BeamReaders Oral and Maxillofacial Radiologists review the entire scan volume for pathology ensuring you are covered. BeamReaders radiology reports can free you from the logistical burden of CBCT reporting, reduce your liability risk, and help you identify or confirm information on your patients scan to ensure you develop a precise treatment plan.

Please remember that when you provide clinical information (e.g. vitality testing, periodontal probing, dental history, etc.), BeamReaders radiologists can provide even better support!

Take a look at some of our example reports below:

Vertical root fracture (VRF)

Vertical root fracture detected during a comprehensive evaluation of CBCT scans.
A case with indirect evidence of the presence of VRF

VIEW REPORT

Vertical root fracture (VRF)

Vertical root fracture detected during a comprehensive evaluation of CBCT scans.
A case with direct visualization of VRF

VIEW REPORT

Assessment of root canal anatomy and morphology

A case of an inflammatory periapical lesion of tooth associated with an unfilled MB2 canal.

VIEW REPORT

Developmental dental anomaly (Dens in Dente)

A case of dens invaginatus in a maxillary lateral incisor associated with a periapical inflammatory lesion.

Authoritative Reports

BeamReaders Radiology Reports describe any abnormalities in endodontic areas including:

  • Confirm/rule out odontogenic origin of anomalies
  • Evaluate the PDL space
    • Identify/rule out periapical/radicular pathosis
    • Identify/rule out periodontal pathosis
  • Evaluate the Lamina Dura/identify cemental tears
  • Identify complex/unusual root anatomy
  • Identify/rule out radiographic evidence of root/coronal/alveolar fracture
  • Identify/rule out root resorption
    • Internal vs external
    • Apical vs cervical
  • Identify proximity to and effect on adjacent anatomical structures (e.g. cortices, sinuses, mandibular canal, incisive canals, etc.)
  • Specific to Pre-RCT evaluation
    • Identify canal configuration
    • Identify the presence of moderate to severe calcification of the pulp chamber/canal(s)
  • Specific to Mid/Post RCT evaluation
    • Identify/rule out unfilled canal space
    • Evaluate access/obturation/post angulation
    • Identify perforations
  • Specific to Pre-surgical evaluation
    • Findings listed under “Specific to Mid/Post RCT evaluation”
    • Assessment of potential surgical region

Recommendations for use of CBCT in endodontics can be found in this joint AAE and AAOMR position statement including these comments:

AAE and AAOMR Joint Position Statement

‘The advent of CBCT has made it possible to visualize the dentition, the maxillofacial skeleton, and the relationship of anatomic structures in three dimensions.’

‘Previous findings have been validated in clinical studies in which primary endodontic disease detected with intraoral radiographs and CBCT was 20% and 48%, respectively.’

‘If a clinician has a question regarding image interpretation, it should be referred to an oral and maxillofacial radiologist.’

A BeamReaders Oral and Maxillofacial Radiologist can help you get the most information from your limited FOV CBCT imaging!

Communicate with Your Referring Doctors and Improve Treatment Plans

Case Share

  • Case Share allows you to connect with your Referring Doctors and any other treatment partners involved in the patient’s care.
  • Securely and in a HIPAA complaint manner share all the patient’s imaging files and discuss with your treatment partners.
  • Case Share is included free of charge with every radiology report or image portfolio.
  • Case Share allows you to stand out in your dental community as a technology and care leader which drives more referrals to your doorstep.

Let us show you what you are missing with intraoral radiographs!

CBCT can identify lateral canals (pink arrow) and associated lesion (blue arrow).

An Image Portfolio combined with our Radiology Report is the tool to communicate imaging results to your patients, and helps them clearly visualize their situation, your diagnosis, and the goals of your treatment plan. An Image Portfolio helps answer the “why” that patients frequently have!
