A New Radiological Classification for Ameloblastoma Based on Analysis of 19 Cases

Issue: 
Pages: 
434–9
Synopsis: 
An analysis of l9 cases of ameloblastoma is conducted in young Jamaicans. A new classification for ameloblastoma based on radiology is adopted and linked to the surgical management of ameloblastoma. No case simulating the classical dentigerous cyst was documented. The paper offers a new radiological classification which can assist in the management of ameloblastoma.

ABSTRACT

 

Objective: To describe ameloblastoma of the jawbone in young Jamaicans, with special emphasis on radiological findings, and to introduce a radiological classification which could assist in the categorization of these cases according to their biological behaviour and hence their subsequent surgical and medical management.
