AIM To investigate the effect of reducing limited-volume cone-beam computed tomographs arc of rotation from 360° to 180° on the ability to diagnose small, artificially created apical lesions. METHODOLOGY Small, artificial apical bone lesions were prepared with a bur in the apical region of the distal root of ten mandibular first molars, in human dry mandibles. The jaws were scanned in a fixed position with limited-volume CBCT making a 360° and 180° arc of rotation, before and after each… CONTINUE READING
