OBJECTIVE To demonstrate the feasibility of using spiral computed tomographic data for three-dimensional image acquisition, display, and segmentation of dental structures and lesions and to demonstrate the feasibility of metal artifact suppression. STUDY DESIGN Isolated extracted teeth, a dry mandible, cadaver mandible, and cadaver head were scanned and reconstructed using spiral computed tomography data. Algorithms for metal artifact reduction including extended attenuation range and… CONTINUE READING
