3D Analysis of Maxillary Incisor Root Inclinations in Cases of Unilateral Maxillary Canine ImpactionDownload
OBJECTIVE: To analyze the relationship between the impacted maxillary canine and the root inclination of the adjacent maxillary incisors. While earlier literature relied on 2-dimensional radiographs, which display an overlapped representation of the maxillary incisors, this project had the...
Purpose: evaluate 1) reliability and accuracy of cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) for assessing adenoid size compared to nasoendoscopy (NE), 2) Influence of clinical experience on CBCT diagnosis. Methods: Four blinded evaluators reviewed randomized CBCT images. Adenoid size was graded on a...
Accuracy and reliability of CBCT imaging for adenoid hypertrophy screening among a sample of oral maxillofacial radiologists and orthodontists and by an automated commercial imaging softwareDownload
Objectives. This thesis project aimed to investigate the diagnostic performance of different dental specialists and a modern dental imaging software to evaluate adenoidal hypertrophy compared with the current reference standard diagnosis by an Otorhinolaryngologist – Head and Neck Surgeon (OHNS)...
Anterior and Middle Cranial Base Growth and Development Changes as Assessed Through CBCT Imaging in AdolescentsDownload
Introduction: In this study three dimensional Cone beam computed tomography is used to evaluate intra-rater, inter-rater and accuracy of selected 3D landmarks of anterior and middle cranial bases. Growth related dimensional changes of anterior and middle cranial base structures are then assessed ...
Comparison of the degree of external root resorption of lower incisors and canines when using the Forsus Spring® over the arch or as part of a Crossbow® device in a RCTDownload
Objective: Assess the degree of external root resorption among lower incisors and canines undergoing orthodontic movement with two Forsus® springs approaches. Materials and methods: The sample of this RCT consisted of 23 patients treated with Forsus® springs over the arch and in 20 patients as...
Cone-Beam Computed Tomography Evaluation of Oropharyngeal Airway Dimensions in Adolescents with Maxillary Transverse DeficiencyDownload
Objectives: The objective of this study is to analyze cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) images to measure changes in oropharyngeal airway (OPA) dimensions after treatment with rapid maxillary expansion (RME), and compare these changes with those from a matched control group. Methods: This...
Development and Validation of Semi-automatic Segmentation Technique of Mandibular Condyles from CBCT imagesDownload
Objectives: Mandibular condyle contains an important growth site that contributes to the eventual anteroposterior position of the mandible, and is a crucial component in establishing normal temporomandibular function. To accurately assess the change in the volume and morphology of the mandibular...
Development of a three dimensional analysis of buccolingual inclinations in maxillary transverse deficienciesDownload
Abstract Introduction: The purpose of this thesis was to develop a new 3D transverse analysis that utilizes a 3D Cartesian coordinate system to assess buccolingual inclinations of first molars and canines using a previously described 3D maxillary reference plane. Landmarks used to create this...
Development, Validation, and Application of a 3D print out of the Nasopharyngeal area from Cone Beam Computed Tomography in ChildrenDownload
Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) is increasingly being used in dentistry to explore certain types of craniofacial abnormalities. Sleep-disordered breathing represents a significant burden to individuals and society. Hence, the opportunistic use of CBCT imaging among dentists to screen for...
Evaluation of anatomic surgical outcomes in children with sleep disordered breathing symptoms using Cone beam Computed TomographyDownload
Aims: to utilize accurate and time-efficient methods to segment the upper airway, develop a registration method for longitudinal CBCT data specific for the upper airways, and correlate meaningful CBCT imaging parameters with surgical outcomes in pediatric cohort with SDB symptoms. Methods: 1)...
