Fibro-osseous lesions of the craniofacial bones comprise a diverse group of pathologic conditions that includes developmental lesions, reactive or dysplastic diseases and neo-plasms. They share many similar histopathological features with other non-fibroosseous disease processes that develop within the jawbones. Thus a definitive diagnosis of fibro-osseous lesions (FOLs) requires a correlation of the histological features with the clinical, radiographic, and intra-operative findings. This study highlights the importance of the role of multi-detector row CT images, in assessment of fibro-osseous lesions in craniofacial complex in patients with known fibro-osseous lesions, facial disfigurement, and facial swelling. MDCT including reformations better delineate craniofacial complex anatomy than do single detector row CT images. It becomes possible to depict the complete path of complex structures. It is confirmed to be valuable in diagnosis and in guiding the surgical interventions by allowing pre-operative delineation of craniofacial complex anatomy. The proximity of the various components is best appreciated when the area is viewed in axial and coronal sections and different reconstructive methods using sub-millimetric thickness. MDCT is a powerful diagnostic and illustrative tool that will narrow the gap between the radiologists and the surgeons.
