Reproducibility of mandibular third molar assessment comparing two cone beam CT units in a matched pairs design.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the reproducibility of the third molar assessment, comparing five observers and two cone beam CT (CBCT) units. 28 patients, each with two impacted mandibular third molars, were included. Each patient was randomly examined with a Scanora(®) 3D (Soredex, Helsinki,...
Comparison of methods for localization of impacted maxillary canines by panoramic radiographs.
The objective of this study was to compare three methods for localization of impacted maxillary canines using only conventional panoramic radiographs. The panoramic radiographs of 94 patients (102 impacted maxillary canines) were reviewed and evaluated using the methods magnification, angulation and...
MRI characteristics of rheumatoid arthritis in the temporomandibular joint.
The aim of this study was to investigate characteristic MRI findings of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in the temporomandibular joints (TMJs). 61 patients (122 TMJs) with RA in the TMJ and 50 patients (100 TMJs) with temporomandibular disorder (TMD) were included in this study. MR images of these patient...
Basic training requirements for the use of dental CBCT by dentists: a position paper prepared by the European Academy of DentoMaxilloFacial ...
Cone beam CT (CBCT) is a relatively new imaging modality, which is now widely available to dentists for examining hard tissues in the dental and maxillofacial regions. CBCT gives a three-dimensional depiction of anatomy and pathology, which is similar to medical CT and uses doses generally higher th...
Hemifacial mass with extensive intralesional ossification and fat.
We describe a diffuse neurofibroma presenting as a hemifacial mass, atypical for the presence of extensive intralesional ossification and fat; the diagnosis was suggested on identification of other associated radiological features of neurofibromatosis....
A case of cystadenocarcinoma of the ectopic salivary gland: comparison of pre-operative ultrasound, CT and MR images with the pathological s...
Cystadenocarcinoma is a rare salivary gland tumour. Only a few case studies have provided pre-operative images of these tumours. This report demonstrates the case of a 28-year-old male with cystadenocarcinoma arising from an ectopic salivary gland with lymph node metastasis in the right upper neck....
Metal artefact reduction with cone beam CT: an in vitro study.
Metal in a patient's mouth has been shown to cause artefacts that can interfere with the diagnostic quality of cone beam CT. Recently, a manufacturer has made an algorithm and software available which reduces metal streak artefact (Picasso Master 3D® machine; Vatech, Hwaseong, Republic of Korea). Th...
Compliance of Iranian dentists with safety standards of oral radiology.
Dentists use radiographs in their daily practice. Their knowledge and behaviour towards radiographic examination can affect patients' exposure to radiation. The aim of this study was to survey the knowledge and behaviour of Iranian dentists regarding oral radiology safety standards. 1000 questionnai...
Synovial chondromatosis of the temporomandibular joint: MRI findings with pathological comparison.
The aim of this retrospective study was to characterize MRI findings of synovial chondromatosis in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) by correlation with their pathological findings. 22 patients with synovial chondromatosis in unilateral TMJ were referred for plain MRI prior to surgical management an...
Central mucoepidermoid carcinoma of maxilla with radiographic appearance of mixed radiopaque-radiolucent lesion: a case report.
We report a case of a 19-year-old central mucoepidermoid carcinoma in a young female patient which was asymptomatic throughout her history and which radiographically simulated a fibro-osseous lesion; both features misled the clinical diagnosis. A radiographic picture of mixed radiopaque-radiolucent...
