Accuracy of tuned aperture computed tomography in the diagnosis of radicular fractures in non-restored maxillary anterior teeth--an in vitro study.


OBJECTIVES This study compared the accuracy of three radiographic imaging modalities for the detection of artificially induced radicular fractures on maxillary anterior teeth. METHODS Fractures were induced in 28 of 54 maxillary incisors in 15 cadaver specimens using a distally directed force. Radiographs evaluated included conventional two-dimensional… (More)
