Image Gently Accepts AAO-Proposed Website Changes
According to Dr. Palomo, Image Gently has accepted and implemented the AAO’s revisions to its website. The AAO language included:
● “Recent advances of low-dose CBCT options exposes the patients to less or equivalent radiation to commonly used dental imaging modalities (Ludlow 2013)”; and
● “Use CBCT when appropriate and use the low-dose CBCT option if available and appropriate.”
“These statements now appear throughout the Image Gently website and replace, ‘Use CBCT only when necessary,’ and ‘Taking a CBCT image results in more radiation dose to the child than other commonly used dental images,’” says Dr. Palomo.
