Occlusal, panoramic, occipitomental
or lateral radiographs can be used, although CT-scan is the powerful and useful technique, because it provides an exact and anatomical location.
Chest X-ray was normal and occipitomental
(Waters' view) X-ray was consistent with sinusitis.
In all the patients, open mouth Water's view was performed in routine with chin elevated and in occipitomental
plane, while the chin and nose were in contact with the x-ray film.
This projection also is referred to the occipitomental
view and is considered the best overall view for the orbits, orbital rim structures, orbital floor, maxillary and frontal sinuses, zygomatic arches, nasal arches and septum.
Radiological Finding: Occipitomental
view of X-ray PNS showed homogenous opacity of almost whole of right side of face.
24 In this study 88% of the zygomatic bone fractures were diagnosed and confirmed using occipitomental
X ray lateral cephalometric and occipitomental
views were performed.
