Contrast Media - A Review
Syeda Arshiya, B Balaji Rao, GP Mamatha
July-September 2003, 15(3):89-92
When the clinical procedure alone fails to achieve accurate diagnosis, there is need to proceed from the simpler, more innocuous technique to other more complex invasive investigations. Radiography is one such simple procedure. They have limitations in their ability of visualization of pathology. Various experiments were performed with various materials to enhance the absorption or transmission of the X-rays and found that if the density of a structure of interest is too low to be visualized on an X-ray image, or if the subject contrast is too low to meet specific diagnostic needs, the contrast and density can be improved artificially. Thus the introduction of contrast agents and its application In contrast radiography assumed a pivotal role in the present day diagnosis and treatment of diseases. At this juncture an attempt has been made to review the literature regarding the history of contrast media, chemistry classification, Ideal requirements, adverse reactions and its use.

Computed Tomographic Evaluation of Mandibular Ameloblastoma
N Eswar, N Gnanasundaram
July-September 2003, 15(3):104-110
Computed tomography is an advanced tomographic technique in which a particular section of the body which has to be imaged is reconstructed with the aid of computer technology. Computed tomography is applied in the field of oral diagnosis in the evaluation of tumors and traumatic conditions of maxillofacial region particularly to assess the soft tissue involvement in these conditions, to establish the contents within a lesion and to determine the vascularity through intravenous contrast studies. Five interesting cases of mandibular ameloblastoma are presented here, each case showing different histological pattern and corresponding computer tomographic appearance. Also an attempt is made to establish CT pattern in these histological varieties of ameloblastoma.
