AIM To compare in an ex vivo model the ability of digital intraoral radiography and cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) to detect simulated external inflammatory root resorption lesions, and to investigate the effect of altering the degree of rotation of the CBCT scanners X-ray source and imaging detector on the ability to detect the same lesions. METHODOLOGY Small and large simulated external inflammatory resorption (EIR) lesions were created on the roots of 10 mandibular incisor teeth from… CONTINUE READING
