INTRODUCTION With the advent of cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) scans, there has been a transition toward these scans' replacing traditional radiographs for orthodontic diagnosis and treatment planning. Children represent a significant proportion of orthodontic patients. Similar CBCT exposure settings are predicted to result in higher equivalent doses(More)
This updated self-assessment exercise for the dental team by the Radiology Practice Committee of the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology is intended to produce the highest quality diagnostic radiographs while keeping patient exposure as low as is reasonably achievable. To continue to provide the best radiographic services to patients, those(More)
AIM Determine the efficacy of 2-year continuous subantimicrobial dose doxycycline (SDD; 20 mg bid) on alveolar bone in post-menopausal osteopenic, oestrogen-deficient women undergoing periodontal maintenance in a 2-year double-blind, placebo-controlled, randomized clinical trial. MATERIAL AND METHODS One-hundred and twenty-eight subjects randomized to SDD(More)
BAPN (0.1 mg/day) was injected into chick embryos for 4 days starting on the 7th day of incubation. On the 11th day, the embryos were administered either 3H-proline or 3H-lysine. 36 h later, the incorporation of each isotope by the periosteal osteogenic cells as well as into bone matrix was investigated by autoradiography. The incorporation of the two(More)
OBJECTIVES This study aims to demonstrate the effectiveness of leaded glasses in reducing the lens of eye dose and of lead thyroid collars in reducing the dose to the thyroid gland of an adult female from dental cone beam CT (CBCT). The effect of collimation on the radiation dose in head organs is also examined. METHODS Dose measurements were conducted by(More)
OBJECTIVES A new hand-held battery-operated portable X-ray system was tested for possible leakage radiation through the existing heavy metal compounds surrounding the X-ray tube, backscatter radiation through the lead-filled acrylic shield attached at the end of the exit tube and patient exposure. METHODS Dose measurements were conducted using a DXTRR(More)
OBJECTIVE In light of the increased recognition of the potential for lens opacification after low-dose radiation exposures, we investigated the effect of leaded eyeglasses worn during dental cone-beam computerized tomography (CBCT) procedures on the radiation absorbed dose to the eye and suggest simple methods to reduce risk of radiation cataract(More)
Four anthropomorphic phantoms (an adult male, an adult female, a 10-y-old child and a 5-y-old child) were exposed to bitewing radiographs at film and digital settings using both rectangular and round collimation. Optically stimulated dosemeters were used. For children, average organ doses were <40 µGy and the organs with the highest doses were the salivary(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to identify the causes of excessive exposure in those dental practices that were found to use exceptionably high levels of radiation in bitewing radiography. STUDY DESIGN Using the parameters of the Dental Exposure Normalization Technique survey, certified radiation equipment safety officers conducted on-site(More)
