Comparing Conventional & Multislice Spiral CT in Dental Implantology
A True Clinical Study
The field of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology is highly developing and growing everyday.
Most of the dental specialists became dependent on new radiographic modalities on a daily basis for accurate diagnosis.
Implant dentistry is one of these fields which require accurate assessment pre-operatively of the implant site and also evaluation of implant insertion and success post-operatively.
In this study we are comparing between conventional and multislice spiral computed tomography as a tool in pre- and post-implant insertion.
We compared the image quality and the accurateness of implant assessment to achieve the best results.
