Measurements of distances related to the mandibular canal in radiographs

Clinical Oral Implants Research
C LindhB Klinge


Before implant surgery in the mandibular side segment, it is of utmost interest to locate the mandibular canal in radiographs to avoid interference with the neurovascular bundle during surgery. Six mandibular specimens were radiographically examined with 2 panoramic and 3 tomographic techniques. The distances between the superior border of the canal and the alveolar crest and between the mandibular base and the inferior border of the canal were measured. In addition, the height of the canal was measured. The measurements were performed by 3 or 4 observers and compared with measurements on contact radiographs of the same areas. Tomography gave more accurate values of the above distances than panoramic techniques. The variation between observers in detecting the mandibular canal was large.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
