Radiovisiography for imaging root canals: an in vitro comparison with conventional radiography

Shearer, A. C.; Horner, K.; Wilson, N. H. F.

PMID: 2082410

Radiovisiography is a rapid, low-dose, digital imaging system that utilizes a small, intraoral sensor in place of radiographic film. Because of these characteristics, it may be particularly suitable for use in endodontics. Consequently radiovisiography and conventional film radiography for the imaging of root canals were compared in vitro. There was no statistically significant difference between the percentage of length of root canal visible on conventional film and that visible on radiovisiographic images. Thus, radiovisiography may be considered to be of equal value to conventional film radiography for the imaging of root canal systems in vitro.
