Publication: Comparative accuracy of the Clearing Technique, CBCT and Micro-CT

Despite the considerable number of studies published on the internal anatomy of posterior teeth, very little information exists regarding the accuracy of clearing, CBCT, and micro-CT methods to diagnose the morphology of the root canal anatomy. Therefore, the aim of this study was to compare the accuracy of the clearing technique and CBCT scanning in the assessment of the mesial root canal configuration of mandibular first molars, using micro-CT imaging system as a reference standard.

should be titled: the accuracy of dye injection in to canal systems vs microct. clearing a tooth is perfect. the tooth will go clear. it's the use of dye and or the skills of the individual injecting the dye that affects the actual "accuracy" in the form of the display of the internal anatomy.
