The laser fluorescence method (LAF) was validated with longitudinal microradiography (LMR) for assessment of mineral loss in incipient caries lesions in human enamel. Fluorescence radiance scans and LMR recordings were made of 36 enamel slabs with incipient lesions. Original sound values for fluorescence radiance and enamel amount (kg.m-2) at the lesion site were reconstructed by a computer algorithm. Changes in fluorescence radiance and amount of enamel in each measuring point were calculated… CONTINUE READING
