In vitro assessment of artifacts induced by titanium dental implants in cone beam computed tomography


Benic, Goran I; Sancho-Puchades, Manuel; Jung, Ronald E; Deyhle, Hans; Hämmerle, Christoph H F (2013). In vitro assessment of artifacts induced by titanium dental implants in cone beam computed tomography. Clinical oral implants research, 24(4):378-383.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to evaluate the geometric pattern and the intensity of artifacts around titanium implants in cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) using an in vitro model. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Ten test models, each containing one 4.1-mm-diameter titanium implant, were cast from a human mandible using silicone impression material and dental stone. Each model contained an implant in one of the following single-tooth gaps: 37, 36, 34, 33, 31, 41, 43, 44, 46, and 47. For control purposes, three models without implants were produced. Each model was scanned five times using a CBCT scanner. Gray values (GV) were recorded at eight circumferential positions around the implants at 0.5 mm, 1 mm, and 2 mm from the implant surface (GV(T) (est) ). GV were measured in the corresponding volumes of interest (VOI) in the models without implants (GV(C) (ontrol) ). Differences of gray values (ΔGV) between GV(T) (est) and GV(C) (ontrol) were calculated as percentages. To detect differences between GV(T) (est) and GV(C) (ontrol) , the 95% confidence interval (CI) was computed for the values of ΔGV. Repeated measures ANOVA was used for the comparison of ΔGV at 0.5 mm, 1 mm, and 2 mm from the implant surface. RESULTS: Artifacts reflected by altered GV were always present in the proximity of titanium implants, regardless of the implant position. When comparing GV(T) (est) and GV(C) (ontrol) , increased GV were found at the buccal and lingual aspects of the implant sites, whereas regions with reduced GV were located along the long axis of the mandibular body of the test models. A significant decrease in artifact intensity was found with increasing distance from the buccal implant surface (ΔGV(0.5 mm) : 45 ± 10% [SD], ΔGV(1 mm) : 28 ± 14% [SD], ΔGV(2 mm) : 14 ± 7% [SD]) (P < 0.001). CONCLUSION: Artifacts around titanium implants in CBCT images were distributed according to a geometrical pattern.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
