    Driving OCT into Dentistry

    The first international symposium on optical coherence tomography (OCT) in dentistry highlighted the many advantages of optical diagnostics over current "gold standard" technologies, including improved safety and earlier detection of decay. Stakeholders are now taking steps that will help this modality take root—and eventually improve patient outcomes. Considering the safety concerns associated with x-rays, newer optical diagnostics are particularly valuable in cases where frequent monitoring improves patient outcomes. Dentistry is one such case, and attendees at the first international Symposium on Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) in Dentistry (June 20–21, 2013; Tokyo, Japan) came away with substantive evidence of ...
