Dental caries and the cysts of jaws are frequently occurring pathologies encountered in a dental practice. Imaging of these dental anomalies is done with radiographic examination. Panoramic radiography/ Orthopantomography (OPG) is a common modality to screen patients with an advantage of ease of imaging and reduced exposure to patients. The panoramic images obtained with this equipment are exploited by noise embedded during its acquisition making the detection of this dental caries difficult. Detection and characterization of dental caries and various other maxilla-facial pathologies can be achieved by the application of computer aided image processing algorithms applied on dental panoramic images...

BACKGROUND: Cone beam computerized tomography (CBCT) has been widely used in dental implanting. However, the local hospitals usually don't have access to CBCT due to the cost and medical investment, especially in West of China. The doctors in local hospitals have to make reasonable dental planting using orthopantomography (OPG) to reduce risks. Therefore, it is clinically meaningful to determine the magnification rate of OPG to obtain correct diagnosis. This study investigated the magnification rate of OPG in measuring different maxillofacial loci compared with CBCT...

The need for forensic age estimations in living adolescents is high mainly due to migration, particularly from countries where birth dates are not reliably documented. To date, the gold standard of dental age estimation is the evaluation of the mineralization and eruption stages of the third molars using an orthopantomogram (OPG). However, the use of ionizing radiation without medical indication is ethically controversial and not permitted in many countries. Thus, the aim of this study was to investigate if dental MRI can be used for the assessment of dental age with equally good results as when using an OPG...

BACKGROUND: Bone grafting is a dynamic phenomenon. It is a surgical procedure that replaces missing bone with material either from patient's own body, or, an artificial, synthetic or natural substitute. A successful bone graft when applied, heals, becomes incorporated, re-vascularises and eventually assumes the form desired. AIMS AND OBJECTIVE: The main purpose of this present study was to radiologically assess and compare the regenerative potential of hydroxyapatite with Collagen (G-Graft) and hydroxyapatite (G-Bone) and to evaluate the clinical usefulness of these materials to enhance bone healing in third molar extraction sites through bone formation...

The gold standard diagnostic modality for osteoporosis is dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA). But it is expensive and often unavailable. Studies have demonstrated that decreased bone mineral density (BMD) may affect mandibular bone morphometrically on radiographs. Such studies are rare in the Indian population. This study was conducted to evaluate correlation between radiomorphometric markers on digital orthopantomograms (OPGs) and BMD measurements done by DXA in an Indian population. A total of 344 subjects aged 45 years or above, who visited a dental outpatient department over a period of 6 years were included in the study after obtaining ethical committee approval and informed consent...
