Many lesions that occur in the jaw have a similar radiographical appearance and it is often difficult to differentiate among them. Despite development of various cross-sectional imaging modalities the radiograph still remains the first and the most important investigation. Radiographical evaluation of jaw lesion characteristics, which include location, margin, density, relation to tooth, along with knowledge of the clinical data, generally helps in narrowing the diagnosis. With advancing technology today the mutti-row scanners are used for an increasing number of indications for routine examinations. Most major research facilities use 64-slice scanners on a routine clinical basis. Computed tomography (CT) scans are not ideal for imaging soft tissues such as muscles, joints or brain, but are perfect for detecting air or calcium. CT provides very good spatial resolution, that is the ability to distinguish between two separate structures that are very close together. But precision in identifying these calcified structures could be upregulated by the use of this normal routine specialized technique along with a software, which uses in its principle methods to quantity and qualitate the density.
