We compared conventional plain radiography, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and ultrasound (US) with respect to their suitability for detecting foreign bodies in soft tissue in an in vitro model using a cow tongue to simulate orofacial soft tissues. Four samples of different sizes of fractured tooth crown, pieces of amalgam, glass, asphalt, composite, dry wood, and stone were each embedded under a 2-cm-thick flap on the caudal surface of the tongue. Plain radiographs… CONTINUE READING
