RESUMEN:

El aumento en el numero de casos en los que el diagnostico de alguna patología bucal no visible clínicamente, se ha logrado mediante la Rx panorámica, conduce a nuestra reflexión y evaluación critica del uso de estas Rx. La indicación de Rx panorámica ha estado limitada a especialidades como la ortodoncia y la cirugía y no como medio de diagnostico integral en pacientes infantiles. En este estudio se evaluaron 60 historias clínicas de pacientes que acudieron a un servicio público de la comunidad de Barcelona estado Anzoátegui, escogidas al azar, cuyas edades oscilaban entre 6 y 12 años.

El análisis de estas historias y sus respectivas Rx panorámicas dio como resultado que un alto porcentaje (40 %) de la muestra elegida a pesar de haber recibido atención odontológica desde temprana edad presento algún tipo de patología, siendo entre los 9 y 11 años la edad promedio de diagnostico mas frecuente; destacan entre las patologías encontradas: la agenesia y dientes supernumerarios, en algunos casos sin evidencia clínica que apuntara a este diagnostico.

Answer to Question #1956 Submitted to "Ask the Experts"
Category: Medical and Dental Issues — Dental

The following question was answered by an expert in the appropriate field:

Q: What exactly is the mrem for a CommCat compared with a NewTom 9000 Volume scan (see the Diagnostic Digital Imaging Web site). These are two dental x-ray machines. Different practitioners make different claims. For example, Loma Linda University will say on its Web site that the NewTom is 80% less than a traditional CAT scan. Well, wouldn't that be about 1,125 or so mrem? But in other places the claim is that this NewTom is equal to a *** dental pano x ray ***. It's important to know so as to properly inform patients.
A: This is an excellent question without an easy answer, unfortunately. The NewTom 9000 volume scan is a relatively new cone-beam CT machine with little literature published about it. One source that I found (Mozzo P et al, A new volumetric CT machine for dental imaging based on the cone-beam technique: preliminary results. European Radiology 1998;8(9): 1558-64) claimed that the dose is approximately one-sixth that of traditional spiral CT. Unfortunately, I was not able to obtain the original article to find out exactly what the numbers are.

A brief literature search on radiation doses for CT examinations of the jaws for dental implants (one jaw at a time) reveals a wide variation in effective doses, depending on the scan technique used, either conventional or reduced dose. One source listed 600 µSv as the effective dose for a CT of the mandible using standard protocols, but 123 µSv for the mandible and 22 µSv for the maxilla using a reduced tube current technique. The maxilla effective dose is listed as similar to that from a *** dental panoramic radiograph ***(26 µSv).

Another source compared skin entrance dose for spiral CT (collimation, 1 mm; pitch, 2; tube voltage, 80 kV; tube current, 40 mA) and panoramic radiography (75 kV, 8 mA, 15 sec). Results were 0.56 +/-0.06 mGy for CT and 0.59 +/-0.04 mGy for panoramic radiography. This study appeared to use the low tube current protocol for CT to keep the dose lower.

Another series of papers comparing cross-sectional film tomography and traditional axial CT scanning of the jaws listed the following effective doses, all in µSv: panoramic radiography – 26; tomography anterior midline – 1-5; tomography premolar area – 13-30; tomography molar area – 11-26; CT maxilla – 104; CT mandible – 761. The tomography doses were for single slices and will vary, depending on the degree of collimation and the specific equipment used.

Recently Pierluigi Mozzo of the Newtom development staff sent me some additional information on radiation doses for the Newtom cone-beam CT unit. They expressed the patient dose in two ways, i.e., a weighted Computed Tomography Dose Index (CTDIw) and an effective dose. According to the figures supplied by Dr. Mozzo, the CTWIw for the Newtom is 2.5 mGy and the effective dose is 50 microSv. He quotes from a soon to be published paper that conventional CT effective doses range from 125 – 258 microSv.
