Oral Radiology

The research of the Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology is focused on the development, improvement and efficacy of diagnostic imaging methods for the visualization of normal and abnormal structures in the maxillofacial complex. This is realized from different perspectives including fundamental and applied (clinical) components. The research field of Diagnostic Imaging Methods at the department of Oral Radiology of ACTA comprises efficacy, accuracy and safety (radiation safety and patient/environmental safety) of diagnostic imaging. Nowadays 3-dimensional X-ray imaging using ConebeamCT plays an important role in dento-maxillo-facial imaging, so also in the research of the department. However also other techniques as infrared imaging, visual light (intraoral and extraoral 3D-video scanning) as well as ultrasound belong to the focus of our research group. Also computer aided design (CAD) and computer aided / navigated surgery based on imaging methods belong to our area of interest.
