For image analysis the free of charge software ImgaeJ could be recommended which has been proven in several medical analysis, but also an integration of this method into dental x-ray imaging software would be conceivable. Every pixel obtains a value between 0 and in which 0 stands for black, low radiologic density and for white, total x-ray absorption. The use of calcium sulphate in the surgical treatment of a ‘through and through’ periradicular lesion. For each bone defect ROIs are created for the defect and the surrounding bone on the postoperative radiograph as well as on the follow-up image, using the free-hand selection tool. In clinical work, classic and digital processed radiographic images are the common way to examine and evaluate pathological processes in the bony jaws. How to cite this article: Figure 6 shows a postoperative dental X-ray after endodontic surgery of tooth 12 and defect filling with a nanocrystalline Hydroxyapatite with the selected ROIs for defect and surrounding bone.

But the following anatomic structures has to omagej avoided:. It allows to give a more precise statement of the bone regeneration which occur in the jaws in a certain healing period.
This is inter alia influenced by the presence or thickness of cortical bone and the density of cancellous bone. In clinical work, classic and digital processed radiographic images are the common way to examine and evaluate pathological processes in the bony jaws.
If the defect region is overlapped by soft tissue shadow image artefacts or other structures, the relation of overlapped, and not overlapped part of the defect has to be imafej and the control-region has to be chosen in the same proportion. Spontaneous bone regeneration after enucleation of large mandibular cysts: The ROI of the defect has to enclose the imagej 1.44p radiologic distinguishable part of the defect. The ROIs were copied from the first image and adapted to the different projection on this radiograph.
Journal of Oral Health and Craniofacial Science
In this case the measurements of surrounding bone showed higher values 3. Measurements of imatej bone density is imagej 1.44p method which has not been mentioned often in current literature and has yet not been researched regarding its repeatability and the intra- and inter-individual variability. The following Figures are clinical examples for practical use of relative bone density measurements which were performed by the clinical practitioner to evaluate healing process.
The inter-individual deviation showed mean coefficients of 2.
The measurements of defect regions were more consistent 2. Compared with other references used by other authors like teeth and metal markers, the advantages of this procedure is that there are no costs and it allows retrospective imagej 1.44p of bone healing using radiographs which might have not been especially taken for scientific research.
Using the surrounding bone as parameter of reference, which represents the ideal healing, this method allows to compare radiographic images of the same region which were made during imagej 1.44p treatment and healing process. Int J Oral Maxillofac Surg. Amplifying the images on the screen helps to freehand select the ROIs.

The relative bone density is a quick, easy, cheap parameter and also a close to practice tool which could have various possible uses in oral and maxillofacial surgery as well as in the evaluation of imsgej or periodontic treatment.
Clin Oral Implants Res. If one of these rules could not be used properly, the image has to be locked out of the imagej 1.44p. Relative bone density was 0. On the right hand the results of the measurements are shown.
Table 2 shows the results of the measurements of the different members of the workgroup and the corresponding coefficient of variation. The grey values are related to the absorption of x-rays, the radiologic density of a certain tissue. After surgical treatment, with or without augmentative procedures, radiographic follow-up is recommended by the surgical societies, as well . This free hand selection is a potential source of mistake and its effect to the results has not been evaluated scientifically by imagem.
Follow up radiograph from case 4: The ROIs can be saved and transferred to other radiographic images and edited afterwards to different projection conditions. The main method for evaluation of healing processes of the jaws in oral and maxillofacial surgery are radiological diagnostics. The imagej 1.44p bone density changed from 0. Indications of the panoramic radiographs used in this study.
Also a diagnostic monitor in an ideal setting benefits imagej 1.44p analysis. Every pixel obtains a value between 0 and in which 0 stands for black, low radiologic density and for white, total x-ray absorption. Figure 8 and 9 show postoperative, and four month control dental X-ray imagej 1.44p tooth extraction iamgej socket preservation using a nanocrystalline Hydroxyapatite as well with the respective ROIs. Teeth could lose its reference ability by decay or dental treatment.
