You are an oral radiologist and are presented with a DDx of ameloblastoma, OKC and simple bone cyst based upon clinical findings and panoramic radiograph. The lesion is fairly large. What is your preferred imaging modality (and the best view) to further explore this lesion and why?
You want volumetric imaging (CT or CBCT, not MRI) to better understand the expansile (or not) nature of this lesion. This helps as a large ameloblastoma will expand the cortices, while an OKC is less likely to be as expansile. The axial slice is most helpful.
