A new method for non-invasive in vivo measurement of changes in bone mineral content (BMC) of mandibles, comprising two-dimensional dual-photon absorptiometry (GT45), has been developed and tested in vitro on mandibular specimens. The analysis showed that: 1) in vitro precision and accuracy of the methods are high, 2) effect of fat and soft tissue on photon attenuation is slight when scanning jaws and forearm bones, 3) BMC in units (U/cm2) in standard area, comprising mandibular base and body… CONTINUE READING
