Imaging the craniofacial skeleton: Is MRI a viable alternative to ionising radiation?
The potential deleterious effects of ionising radiation continue to be highlighted, with radiation reduction largely consisting of low dose techniques rather than a shift to non-ionising methods. The craniofacial region is a key anatomical area for radiation protection in view of the radiosensitive lens and thyroid gland. CT scanning is routinely employed to image this region in view of its superior imaging of bone and ability to create 3D rendered images and anatomical models for diagnosi...Expand abstract
