A Panoramic Survey of Air Force Basic Trainees: How Research Translates into Clinical Practice

By Dr. Barry H. Korzen | Posted July 27, 2014

A young adult population, like those evaluated in this study, should have the best chance of receiving ideal endodontic treatment. This paper evaluated 35,811 panoramic radiographs of United States Air Force inductees and the correlation between best practices and actual treatment rendered is disheartening.

Apical resorption in teeth with periapical lesions: Correlation between radiographic diagnosis and SEM examination

By Dr. Barry H. Korzen | Posted November 6, 2013

Radiographic examination for diagnosing dental resorption is very limiting leading the authors to design this study to attempt to observe teeth with radiographically visible periapical lesions and correlate these routine radiographic findings to the topographical features of the root apex using SEM.

Evaluating the Periapical Status of Teeth with Irreversible Pulpitis by Using Cone-beam Computed Tomography Scanning and Periapical Radiographs

By Dr. Barry H. Korzen | Posted August 5, 2013

The purpose of this study was to compare the prevalence of apical periodontitis (AP) on individual roots of teeth with irreversible pulpitis viewed with periapical (PA) radiographs and cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) scans. The study highlighted the advantages of using CBCT for detecting AP lesions, especially in teeth with symptomatic irreversible pulpitis.
