Tomography is often needed prior to implant surgery to evaluate jaw bone dimensions. Computed tomography (CT) is advocated as an alternative. The purpose of this study was to measure the absorbed doses to radiosensitive organ in the head and neck region when CT is used. Measurements were made with extruded LiF thermoluminescent dosemeters within and on an anthropomorphic phantom examined with a Philips Tomoscan LX CT scanner. Axial scanning was performed for the maxilla and both frontal… CONTINUE READING
