Changing Radiological Techniques in Forensic Odontology Practice in Queensland
MetadataShow full item record
In routine Forensic Odontology practice in Queensland, the availability of Computer Tomography (CT) imaging at Queensland Health Forensic and Scientific Services (QHFSS) supplements plain film imaging techniques by providing an increased ability to investigate in three dimensions and produce images of broad anatomical areas of the teeth and jaws in a timely manner. CT imaging became available at QHFSS in 2009 and we have noted a steady increase in the occasions in which we employ it as a component of our investigations. We describe technical aspects of CT imaging which have been used to supplement our routine examinations. We further describe the trend toward increasing usage of these techniques in routine Forensic Odontology practice.
