COMPARISON OF DIFFERENT DOSE REDUCTION SYSTEM IN COMPUTED TOMOGRAPHY FOR ORTHODONTIC APPLICATIONS

Authors

Abstract

Comparison of different dose reduction system in computed tomography for orthodontic applications. To correlate different CT system: MSCT (multislice computed tomography) with different acquisition parameters (100KV, 80KV), different reconstruction algorithm (ASIR) and CBCT (cone beam computed tomography) examination in terms of absorbed X-ray dose and diagnostic accuracy. 80 KV protocols compared with 100 KV protocols resulted in reduced total radiation dose without relevant loss of diagnostic image information and quality. CBCT protocols compared with 80 KV MSCT protocols resulted in reduced total radiation dose but loss of diagnostic image information and quality although no so relevant. In addition the new system applies to equipment ASIR applicable on MSCT allows 50% of the dose without compromising image quality.
