PANEL DISCUSSION DESCRIPTION
Neoplasia affecting the tissues of the mouth (incl. teeth) and sinuses occur sporadically worldwide, and the literature comprises predominantly of individual case reports with a few historical series. Advanced imaging modalities like MRI and CT have enabled earlier diagnosis, a more thorough appraisal of affected anatomical structures and better treatment planning. However, at present treatment options are limited and to a large extent outcomes remain uncertain.
As part of this exchange, we aim to review the most commonly reported tumors, their presenting signs, diagnostic findings and treatments. In addition, using case examples, the opportunities for three-dimensional diagnostic imaging will be discussed along with guidelines for selection of treatments based on the reported outcomes and the considerable experience of the international panel consisting of 4 world-renowned experts. We expect this exchange to be lively, interesting and visually stimulating and we welcome as many veterinarians who are keen to take part and contribute.
