Magnetic Resonance Micro imaging in Dentistry

Magnetic resonance Micro imaging ( MRM) is a non destructive and non invasive technique.With this technique high resolution three dimensional images can be produced similar to histologic teeth sectioning process. Both internal and external tooth morphology could be determined with this technique. Medical field is rapidly exploring this micro imaging but in dentistry it is still under development .This technique should ...more »

Biophotonics devices to promote healing and tissue regeneration

The use of various forms of biophotonics treatments is enabling better clinical care in dentistry from an improved illumination of operative fields, sophisticated optical and spectroscopic imaging to therapeutic (surgical and non-surgical) applications. There are several anecdotal reports on the superiority of lasers as a surgical tool that is ascribed to its precision and blood-less field of operation. However, there ...more »

Integration of Electronic Medical and Dental Records

The electronic dental records (EDR) currently exist in a digital desert, isolated from the mainstream advances in the electronic medical record (EMR) management. Whereas it is common practice to provide access to EMR data for the purposes of building value-added diagnostic tools, EDR data is much less accessible. Likewise, EMR data are routinely organized in research data warehouses (RDW) and are made available for mechanistic, ...more »

Qualitative analysis of x-ray images of the temporomandibular jo

The effectiveness of CT and cone beam CT (CBCT) examination of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is determined by the sensitivity and independence of the method used for analysis of the image obtained. The optical system of the human eye cannot detect changes in the radiographic (graphics) information within 10%. Objective. To improve the quality and objectivity of the analysis of CT and CBCT of the TMJ by the creation ...more »
