Observation of Newly Formed Bone Around Dental Implants Using Parametric X-ray
The purpose of this study is to determine the potential of the LEBRA-PXR imaging in investigating the details of newly formed bone around the dental implants. Transmission image observation of the undecalcified specimen at the wavelength of 1.771 Å showed clearly the formation of immaturely calcified new bone around the dental implants which could not be observed in the usual CMR nor conventional X-ray imaging apparatus.
