OBJECTIVE This study aimed to determine the diagnostic reliability of panoramic radiographs (PRs) in the detection of carotid artery calcifications (CACs) during routine dental examination by comparing them with color Doppler ultrasound (CDUS) examination as the criterion standard. The correlations between CAC formation and systemic diseases, body mass index, smoking, and age were also examined. STUDY DESIGN A total of 70 patients >40 years old diagnosed with CACs from PRs obtained during… CONTINUE READING
