Posted on October 9, 2013

 

A German study finds that magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a well-tolerated imaging modality for the diagnosis of dental abnormalities in children and for orthodontic treatment and surgical planning, according to Orthodontic Products Online. Moreover, when compared with conventional radiography, dental MRI provides the advantage of 3-dimensionality and complete elimination of ionizing, which is particularly relevant for repeated examinations in children.

The study appears in the July issue of the Journal of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.
