PURPOSE To compare linear measurements made on cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) images to direct measurements in ex vivo porcine mandibles. MATERIALS AND METHODS Six cross-sectional planes were defined by gutta-percha-filled cavities in seven mandibles. The mandibles were scanned in a CBCT apparatus and later sectioned, using a band saw, through the gutta-percha markers. Next, four direct (DIR) linear measurements were performed for each section with a handheld digital caliper, using the… CONTINUE READING
