OBJECTIVES To analyze the effect of changes in exposure settings, field of view (FOV), and shielding on radiation to an adult and child phantom from cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) imaging compared to panoramic and lateral cephalometric radiographs. MATERIALS AND METHODS The effective dose to an adult and child anthropomorphic phantom by the CS 9300 using various scan protocols was recorded. Absorbed radiation was measured with optically stimulated luminescence dosimeters and effective…

The purpose of this study is to survey how post-graduate orthodontic graduate programs across the United States are utilizing CBCT scans for initial, progress and post-treatment records.

How well do integrated 3D models predict alveolar defects after treatment with clear aligners?

Alveolar defects after clear aligner treatment cannot be simulated accurately by IMs constructed from pre-CBCT, and caution should be taken in the treatment of crowding with proclination and molar distalization for the safety of alveolar bone at the mandibular incisors.

Cone beam « low dose » et orthodontie : une nouvelle modalité d’imagerie…

Dans ce cadre, il est nécessaire de connaître parfaitement les techniques « low dose » afin of discuter de ses indications, plus particulièrement en orthodontie, and of les intégrer dans les arbres décisionnels qui conduisent au choix d’une technique radiographique pour un individu donné dans un but diagnostic précis.

Effect of leaded glasses and thyroid shielding on cone beam CT radiation dose in an adult female phantom.

Collimation alone reduced the dose to the brain by up to 91%, with a similar reduction in other organs, and leaded glasses, thyroid collars and collimation minimize the doses to organs outside the field of view.

Patient risk related to common dental radiographic examinations: the impact of 2007 International Commission on Radiological Protection recommendations regarding dose calculation.

Although radiographs are an indispensable diagnostic tool, the increased effective doses of common intraoral and extraoral imaging techniques are high enough to warrant reconsideration of means to reduce patients' exposure.

Thyroid shields and neck exposures in cephalometric radiography

In the absence of a thyroid shield, children have moreneck structure exposed to radiation than adults and females have more neck tissue exposed inferior to the hyoid bone than males.

Effectiveness of thyroid gland shielding in dental CBCT using a paediatric anthropomorphic phantom.

Thyroid shields are to be recommended when undertaking large FOV CBCT examinations on young patients after a statistically significant difference in thyroid gland doses was found depending on the position of the thyroid gland.

Practical applications of cone-beam computed tomography in orthodontics.

The authors provide a practical guide for applying CBCT in orthodontics, with an emphasis on situations in which conventional imaging is limited, and CBCT has image-fidelity advantages over conventional imaging that can lead to improved visualization.
