PURPOSE This study was performed to suggest reference line-pair values of panoramic images with clinically desirable qualities using an arch-form phantom stand. MATERIALS AND METHODS The line-pair test phantom was chosen. A real skull model was selected for setting the arch-form model of the phantom stand. The phantom stand had slits in four regions(More)
The objective of this study was to perform the quantitative three-dimensional analysis of the patients' movements at the different time points during the simulated acquisition of cephalometric radiographs. Fifty-three subjects (32 men, 21 women) were divided into four groups according to their age (Group 1: 9-12, Group 2: 13-19, Group 3: 20-25, and Group 4:(More)
PURPOSE An individual surgical stent fabricated from computed tomography (CT) data, called a CT-guided stent, would be useful for accurate installation of implants. The purpose of the present study was to introduce a newly developed CT-guided stent with a simple design and evaluate the accuracy of the stent placement. MATERIALS AND METHODS A resin(More)
