OBJECT The aim of this study was the examination of relationship between the age and the ossification of medial epiphysis of the clavicle referred to CT examination. MATERIALS AND METHODS Concerning the epiphyseal ossification of the clavicle CT's of 100 patients (50 male and 50 female) between 16 and 25 years (10 patients for each year) were analyzed by(More)
PURPOSE Three-dimensional imaging using digital volume tomography after reduction of zygomaticomaxillary complex fractures was performed and evaluated. PATIENTS AND METHODS Ten patients admitted for surgical treatment of zygomaticomaxillary complex fractures were included in the study. All patients were male, aged 17 to 81 years (average, 43.8 years).(More)
With digital transversal slice imaging (TSI) as a supplementary program to pantomographic devices and digital volume tomography (DVT), images of the viscerocranium are now possible in several planes. The two procedures, TSI and DVT, are complementary. They should be applied where the indication justifies it in dentistry and maxillofacial surgery for(More)
PURPOSE The aim of the study was to compare image quality of two different systems based on cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT). STUDY DESIGN Primary and secondary reconstructions were performed from data sets of the Siremobil Iso-C(3D) (Siemens Medical Solutions, Erlangen, Germany) and the NewTom 9000 (NIM s.r.l., Verona, Italy) using a dried human(More)
We want to demonstrate a retrospective analysis of the patient group who received conebeam computed tomography (CBCT) imaging in our department focussing on indications extending the established range. For postprocessing purposes eFilm Workstation 1.8.3 (Merge eFilm, Milwaukee, WI, USA) was used. Examinations were either recorded on CD-ROM or documented as(More)
BACKGROUND Multidirectional angularly stable interlocking plate systems are now available for the surgical treatment of the midface. After first experiences in cases of mandibular fractures, application to the facial skeleton was investigated using a cadaver study. Furthermore, three-dimensional imaging by means of the digital volume tomograph NewTom DVT(More)
PURPOSE Two intraoral CCD sensor systems were compared with respect to image quality and interobserver agreement. MATERIALS AND METHODS Forty intraoral images from each of the sensors (Trophy RVG5, Sirona Sidexis) were examined by 4 observers in terms of anatomical landmarks and general image quality. The images were divided into 2 groups--filtered and(More)
Proteus syndrome is a rare condition that involves atypical growth of the bones, skin and head and a variety of other symptoms. Only a few authors have reported on the craniofacial manifestations so far. The authors present a case of a 7-year-old girl with Proteus syndrome in which the facial skeleton showed unilateral overgrowth. The analysis of the(More)
OBJECTIVE To develop a new radiography-based score to assess the potential of bacteria to cause odontogenic infections derived from the occurrence of bacteria at small or large radiographical lesions. MATERIALS AND METHODS The patients analyzed were a sub-population from a large randomized clinical trial comparing moxifloxacin and clindamycin in the(More)
