OBJECTIVES To compare the accuracy of cone-beam computerized tomography (CBCT) and multislice CT (MSCT) for linear jaw bone measurements. STUDY DESIGN An ex vivo formalin-fixed human maxilla was imaged with both CBCT (Accuitomo 3D; Morita, Kyoto, Japan) and MSCT (4-slice Somatom VolumeZoom and 16-slice Somatom Sensation 16; Siemens, Erlangen, Germany). The MSCT images were reconstructed using different reconstruction filters to optimize bone visualization (U70u and U90u for VolumeZoom, H30s… CONTINUE READING
