Periapical lesions are among the most common findings during clinical and imaging examinations. These lesions most typically represent inflammatory pathology of pulp and periapical origin, but they may also represent odontogenic and nonodontogenic cysts and tumors or fibro-osseous lesions. The use of routine diagnostic tests — 2D, 3D and, in specific cases, laboratory testing — and integrated health record data will be discussed.

  • Recognize clinical and radiographic abnormalities.
