Utility of Transfacial Dental Ultrasonography in Evaluation of Cystic Jaw Lesions.

08:00 EDT 6th September 2017 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Utility of Transfacial Dental Ultrasonography in Evaluation of Cystic Jaw Lesions."

Plain radiography has been widely used in dentistry. Because of the variability of the quality of equipment, radiographic technique, accuracy of interpretation, and radiation risk to the patients, the field is ripe for the introduction of other newer diagnostic modalities. In this report, we demonstrate the utility of ultrasonography in the diagnostic workup of cystic or cystlike lesions of the jaw.
