BACKGROUND The development of third molars can be evaluated with medical imaging to estimate age in subadults. The appearance of third molars on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) differs greatly from that on radiographs. Therefore a specific staging technique is necessary to classify third molar development on MRI and to apply it for age estimation. AIM To develop a specific staging technique to register third molar development on MRI and to evaluate its performance for age estimation in… CONTINUE READING
