Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is a contemporary, radiological imaging system designed specifically for use on the maxillo-facial skeleton. The system overcomes many of the limitations of conventional radiography by producing undistorted, three-dimensional images of the area under examination. These properties make this form of imaging particularly(More)
INTRODUCTION This in vitro study compared cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) exam with different voxel sizes with digital periapical radiography in the detection of vertical root fractures in teeth with and without intracanal metallic posts. METHODS Eighteen single-rooted human teeth were endodontically treated, prepared for cast metal posts, and(More)
AIM To compare cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) with periapical radiography for the identification of simulated endodontic complications. METHODOLOGY Sixteen human teeth, in three mandibles, were submitted to the following simulated endodontic complications: G1) fractured endodontic file; G2) root perforation; G3) cast post with deviation; G4)(More)
