#15 palatal root fracture and lateral root lucency
Incidental finding on a 58 year old female patient where there is a large well defined semicircular lucency centered on the furcal side of #15 palatal root.
There is a thin dark lucent line showing an oblique root fracture. The well defined midroot lucency not involving the apex is typical of a root fracture. What is unusual is to see the fracture so clearly. The slice interval thickness is 0.1 mm.
