    ABSTRACT: Idiopathic bone cavity (IBC) is a non-odontogenic intra-osseous lesion that affects the jaws and others bones. The aetiology of IBC remains unknown. IBC is frequently observed as a single radiolucent area with a corticated, well-defined border, a scalloped shape and a minimal effect on the surrounding structures. A case report of asynchronous IBC in a 17-year-old woman is presented. The first lesion occurred in the mandibular symphysis region, and the second IBC occurred in the right mandibular ramus. Both lesions were surgically treated, and the patient has been disease-free for 5 years.

    ABSTRACT: Simple bone cysts are well-defined intraosseous radiolucencies that often extend between the roots and appear clinically like empty cavities. This article aims to provide more information about this lesion with limited prominence in academic literature, to illustrate atypical cases, and to provide a review of the current literature. A series of six atypical cases of simple bone cysts is presented and their clinical, radiographic and microscopic characteristics, differential diagnosis, treatment and follow-up are discussed. Correct diagnosis of this entity is of key importance, since it presents with clinical & radiographic similarities to other bone lesions, some exhibiting more aggressive behaviour.

    ABSTRACT: Summary form only given, as follows. Two new capabilities are being implemented into the 3-D particle-in-cell code ARGUS which will reduce substantially both problem size and computing time when modeling realistic geometries with high accuracies. In the time domain, a cylindrical radiative boundary condition will enable traveling-wave propagation to be simulated in accelerator structures. An application of interest is the input coupler in the SLAC X -band high-gradient structure where local field gradients and impedance matching are important issues. In the frequency domain. a quasi-periodic boundary condition will facilitate the cold-test analysis of 3-D periodic structures where many calculations are required to generate an ω-β diagram. Present applications include the crossed-field amplifier cavity and the cluster klystron cavity
