Patient
male, 35 year(s)
 
 
  • Figure 1
    Dental Panoramic Radiograph

    Panoramic radiography shows normal appearance of teeth and a large radiopaque structure in the right maxillary sinus.

     
    Area of Interest: Head and neck; Imaging Technique: Digital radiography; Procedure: Acceptance testing; Special Focus: Connective tissue disorders;
     
     
  • Figure 2
    Unenhanced CT scan
     

    Unenhanced CT scan (axial view) shows: hypoplasia of the right maxillary sinus, almost entirely filled by a hyperdense lesion.

     
    Area of Interest: Ear / Nose / Throat; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Connective tissue disorders;

    Unenhanced CT scan (coronal view) shows: hyperdense thickening of the walls of right maxillary sinus and consequent hypoplasia.

     
    Area of Interest: Ear / Nose / Throat; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Connective tissue disorders;

    Unenhanced CT scan (sagittal view) shows: the right maxillary sinus is almost entirely filled by the lesion.

     
    Area of Interest: Ear / Nose / Throat; Imaging Technique: CT; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Connective tissue disorders;
     
     
  • Figure 3
    MRI scan
     

    Axial unenhanced T1-weighted MR image shows hypoplasia of the right maxillary sinus filled by a heterogeneous low-signal-intensity lesion.

     
    Area of Interest: Ear / Nose / Throat; Imaging Technique: MR; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Connective tissue disorders;

    Axial unenhanced T2-weighted MR image shows a low signal intensity of the lesion and a small peripheral amount of fluid.
