Abstract

This study describes the effect of the software binning and data averaging during micro CT volume acquisition, on the assessment of root resorption volumes. The mesial roots (n = 9), after orthodontic tooth movement during 14 days, were scanned, using a micro CT system (9 µm/pixel). All roots were reconstructed and the volumes of the resorption lacunae evaluated. The height and width of the pixels vary according to the parameters (A1, A2, A3, A4, A5, A6, A7, A8, A9) used during the scan. In the root #1 the mean volumes of resorption were similar in A4 and A7; in the root #2 there was no similarity in the mean volumes of resorption in any of the parameters; in root #3 only A4 presented mean v..
