Radiology Reporting for Endodontics

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.

CBCT is powerful in Endodontics, especially with BeamReaders on your team

CBCT can often identify entities that can be difficult to detect with intraoral radiographs such as: lateral canals, cemental tears, and radiographic features that differentiate malignancy from infection.

Journal of Endodontics July 2014 Conclusions:

Under the conditions of this study, preoperative CBCT imaging provides additional information when compared with preoperative periapical radiographs, which may lead to treatment plan modifications approximately 62% of the cases.

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."

"When we go to conferences about the use of CBCTs in guided surgery, etc., we are told that we're responsible for the entire field of view and it's prudent to have our scans evaluated by a radiologist. But then we leave the conferences and we don't really know where to turn for those services. When I found BeamReaders, it was like a weight was lifted off my shoulders. My BeamReaders radiologist has been fantastic to work with on all my cases!"
