INTRODUCTION The purpose of this article was to evaluate the accuracy of measurements made on 9- and 12-in cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) images compared with measurements made on a coordinate measuring machine (CMM), which is the gold standard. METHODS Ten markers were placed on a synthetic mandible, and landmark coordinates and linear and angular measurements were determined with the CMM. Three-dimensional CBCT images, measuring 9 and 12 in, were taken of the mandible with a CBCT… CONTINUE READING
