Business Process Management (BPM) in recent years has become a highest priority area for most organizations. Since this concept is multidisciplinary, success in this endeavour requires considering different factors. A number of studies have been conducted to identify these factors; however, most are limited to the introduction of high-level factors or to(More)
By producing undistorted three-dimensional images of the area under examination, cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) systems have met many of the limitations of conventional radiography. These systems produce images with small field of view at low radiation doses with adequate spatial resolution that are suitable for many applications in endodontics from(More)
PURPOSE Currently panoramic radiography is used for diagnosis of dental and bone lesions, but anatomical structures also can be seen and may be useful in dental managements. This study aimed to investigate the visibility of some important mandibular features relating to neurovascular structures in Iranian population. MATERIALS AND METHODS Panoramic(More)
which permits unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction in any medium, provided the original work is properly cited. Radiographs which are commonly prescribed may not provide accurate differential diagnosis for various le-sions of the head and neck. As a result, higher doses of radiation are imposed to take supplementary radiographs for more precise(More)
INTRODUCTION Vertical root fracture (VRF) is common in endodontically treated teeth. Conventional and digital radiographies have limitations for detection of VRFs. Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) offers greater detection accuracy of VRFs in comparison with conventional radiography. This study compared the effects of metal artifacts on detection of VRFs(More)
Desmoplastic fibroma (DF) is a rare and locally aggressive intraosseous tumor with unknown etiology. The mandible is the common site of involvement in the maxillofacial region. However, it is believed that DF can arise in any bone of the body. A wide age distribution has been reported for DF occurrence, extending from birth to the sixth decade of life, with(More)
