    Objectives: Finding the best voxel size for detection of vertical periodontal bone defects with minimum patient radiation dose is a priority. This study sought to assess the effect of Cone-Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) voxel size on detection of vertical bone defects. Materials and methods: In this in vitro, experimental study, 31 vertical defects including 2 onewall, 12 two-wall, and 17 three-wall defects were randomly created in the maxilla and mandible of four sheep skulls with the associated soft tissue using round and needle burs. Forty sound sites were considered as the control group. The CBCT scans were obtained from the skulls with 0.150 and 0.300 mm3 voxel sizes and 8 x 11 cm2 Field Of View (FOV). The images were randomly evaluated by two oral and maxillofacial radiologists and two periodontists, and their findings were r.. Read More»
