OBJECTIVES The objective of this study was to examine the prevalence of carotid area calcifications retrospectively detected on digital panoramic radiographs of pretreatment cancer subjects, and to correlate the finding of such calcifications with radiographic evidence of periodontal bone loss in the same subjects. STUDY DESIGN Digital panoramic radiographs of 201 subjects were evaluated for calcifications projected in the carotid artery bifurcation area as well as for alveolar bone loss as a… CONTINUE READING
