OBJECTIVE: Size characterization of osteolytic jaw lesions (OJL), in particular of neoplastic nature, is heterogeneously performed and lacks standardization in the medical literature and clinical practice. An OJL's volume holds promise as a surrogate for treatment response and prognosis. We comparatively evaluate various methods for size characterization of odontogenic OJLs. METHODS: We retrospectively performed semiautomatic image segmentation of CBCT data sets for volume approximation of neoplastic (51) and non-neoplastic odontogenic OJLs (100)...

OBJECTIVES: (1) To find a safe reference transmission factor for the remnant beam to be used when assessing the remnant beam during intra-oral radiography. (2) To identify factors such as exposure type, side (left or right), gender and age that might significantly affect transmission. METHODS: Measurements were performed in the remnant beam during 323 intra-oral exposures of 43 patients. The exposure parameters were 60 kV and 7 mA. These measurements were compared with values in the same setting, but without a patient present to arrive at a transmission value...

OBJECTIVES: Cone-beam CT (CBCT), a radiographic tool for diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up in dental practice, was introduced also in pediatric radiology, especially orthodontics. Such patients subjected to repetitive X-rays examinations may receive substantial levels of radiation doses. Ionizing radiation (IR), a recognized carcinogenic factor causing DNA double-strand breaks (DSBs) could be harmful to undifferentiated cells such as dental pulp stem cells (DPSCs) since inaccurately repaired or unrepaired DSBs may lead to malignant transformation...

OBJECTIVES: Brazilians who are free of traditional atherogenic risk factors frequently suffer myocardial infarctions (MI). Calcified carotid artery plaque (CCAP) on panoramic images (PIs) has been shown to be a validated "risk indicator" of future MIs. The diagonal earlobe crease (DELC) is likewise a validated "risk indicator" of future MI. We sought to determine the prevalence of DELC+ among patients having CCAP+ on their PIs. METHODS: In a masked cross-sectional study, three dentists evaluated PIs of patients (N = 481) over age 55 for presence of CCAP+...

OBJECTIVES: To verify the use of tungsten sheet as an alternative to lead foil for reducing the radiation dose behind storage phosphor plates (SPPs). METHODS: At six sites (incisor, canine, and molar sites in both the maxilla and mandible) in a head phantom, radiation doses were initially measured behind conventional film packets containing two films and a lead foil. At the same sites, radiation doses were also measured behind packets containing only SPPs. Thereafter, the same dose measurements were performed with shielding materials (lead foil or tungsten sheet) within the packets...

This report presents two cases of Worth syndrome involving the mandible which were identified as an incidental finding on radiologic evaluation. Both patients were females who presented with enlarged mandibles. Radiologic evaluation revealed multiple bilateral mandibular enostoses, widened and thickened inferior cortical border of the mandible, with no other major clinical finding on examination. One of the patients received orthognathic surgery and healed uneventfully with no post-surgical complications. In this report, we reviewed possible differential diagnoses to this syndrome to facilitate identification among general dentists and oral and maxillofacial radiologists...
