CT is the imaging technique of choice in the evaluation of midface trauma or inflammatory disease. We performed a systematic evaluation of scan protocols to optimize image quality and radiation exposure. High resolution 3D imaging can be performed at a dose level comparable to conventional radiography. Read more
