During the past few years, improvements in detecting longitudinal changes in clinical attachment or alveolar bone density have been introduced. For example, constant-force electronic probes and computer-assisted subtraction analysis of longitudinal radiographs have been reported to be more sensitive and reproducible in detecting changes in clinical attachment or alveolar bone density, respectively. Use of these new technologies requires that sources of measurement error be identified and their… CONTINUE READING
