Diagnostic accuracy of CBCT compared to panoramic radiography in predicting IAN exposure: a systematic review and meta-analysis
 Clinical Oral Investigations (2021)Cite this articledetailsAbstractObjectivesThe aim of this study is to verify whether the diagnostic accuracy of cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is superior to panoramic radiography (PR) in predicting inferior alveolar nerve (IAN) exposure during the lower third molar extraction.Materials and methodsEight electronic databases were searched up to September 2020. Studies that evaluated the accuracy (sensitivity, specificity, positive-predictive value, and negative predictive value) of both imaging methods were included. The gold standard was the visualization of the IAN expos...

The incredible true story of the cancer patient who didn ’t have cancer | Ranjana Srivastava
People deserve better than a never-ending stream of unproven practices dangled before them in the guise of hopeTen years ago a desperate young woman walked into my office and declared: “I need your help. I am dying of cancer.”Her story was incredible. At an integrative medicine seminar she had won a special blood test as a door prize. Thinking of having some bloods done anyway, she had taken advantage of the free offer, only to receive a call telling her she had cancer. It was only after an expensive course of intravenous vitamins that her sceptical cousin asked why no one had at least ordered a CT scan to find...
