    Diagnosis of Occlusal Caries using Swept-source Optical Coherence Tomography
    Objectives: Detection of pit and fissure caries by current methods is not highly sensitive. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a promising diagnostic method for creating cross-sectional imaging of internal biological structures by measuring echoes of backscattered light. In this ex vivo study, we examined a swept-source OCT (SS-OCT) as a diagnostic tool for occlusal caries. Methods: 117 investigation sites of occlusal fissures were selected from 62 extracted teeth and inspected visually using conventional dental equipment without any magnification. SS-OCT observation was also carried out on the same location as where the conventional inspection had been performed. The teeth were then ...
