Book Description

Most orthodontic practitioners are facing or will face the challenge of “going digital,” choosing film or pixels, indirect or direct radiography, and 3D imaging with cone-beam technology. There are many questions of prime interest to clinicians with respect to digital radiography. Digital or not–on what basis do I make the decision? Is radiation exposure really less for the patient if I go digital? Are digital images as useful as film images in diagnosis and treatment planning or in seeing what happened when treatment does not go as I expect? Can I integrate digital images into my existing imaging programs? How much will it cost? What types of hassles will I encounter if and when I make the switch to digital? Does 3D imaging offer advantages over 2D imaging in all or only specific cases? What is the potential for integration and acceptance of 3D imaging in clinical practice? These and other such questions were addressed during the 32nd annual Moyers Symposium.
