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)
Computerized tomography (CT)-based imaging and surgical guidance carry both radiographic information such as height, density, and width of bone and clinical information such as axis of orientation for a successful prosthodontic result, thus determining the trajectory, depth, and distribution of the implants. The objective of this report is to review the(More)
Background Mobile phones are an important part of adolescents' life. In this study, the relationships among smartphone addiction, age, gender, and chronotype of German adolescents were examined.

Quality is key to being able to read radiographs. If it is lacking or poor, it is impossible to make a proper diagnosis. This article describes simple techniques and provides answers to problems encountered in the production of quality radiographs, such as, darkroom management, correct safelights, fresh chemistry and clean equipment. It includes a(More)
Traditionally, multiple radiographic views and techniques were required to elucidate the nature and extent of fractures of the maxillofacial complex. As a result, patient cost in terms of time, expense, manipulation, and radiation exposure scaled upward. Synthesis and interpretation of the fragmented bits of information from multiple films also constituted(More)
A discussion of digital radiographs. Shows how the digital radiograph is formed and its many uses. Lists and explains the advantages, that is, it is instantaneous, fewer problems with quality, and can mesh with the computer in the office. The disadvantages are described as well and may include cost, medical liability and storage space. Lastly, it points out(More)
