A GP Perspective on Radiology
Dr. Amanda Trotti
GP & Part-time Instructor in Radiology
In this edition of CDA Oasis Live, Dr. Amanda Trotti, a GP and part-time radiology instructor from Toronto, presents a case where a panoramic radiograph reveals a calcified stylohyoid ligament.
Dr. Trotti uses the case study to highlight the importance of incidental findings in radiographs, and encourages dentists to examine images thoroughly and not overlook the significance of what may seem insignificant.
Here are some of the key takeaways from the conversation…
- Panoramic radiography is a useful diagnostic tool that can reveal many anatomical structures, both soft and hard.
- Typically physicians do not have access to PAN imaging. This is where dentists can have an important role in following up on any anomalies and incidental findings.
- It is important to examine images in their entirety. Although something may seem insignificant now, it might not be in the future.
- Everything is a learning experience, no matter how simple or insignificant it may seem.
