Comparison of cone-beam computed tomography with multislice computed tomography in detection of small osseous condylar defects.

INTRODUCTION Previous studies have indicated that orthodontic-grade cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) images are limited when displaying small defects at the mandibular condyles for diagnosis. In this study, we investigated whether this limitation was inherent to CBCT by comparing CBCT with multislice computed tomography (CT), and whether image… (More)
