Over in Sao Paolo, Brazil, Professor Marco Versiani and his team have been busy scanning teeth with MicroCT. MicroCt is a an exciting tool for the examination of tooth anatomy, and is particularly useful for looking at root canal anatomy. The result of Prof. Versiani’s work is the Root Canal Anatomy Project. They’ve put together a website where you can go and have a look at the results of their work. It’s a great source of information and provides nice 3D views of pulp anatomy. Best of all, it’s free and Prof. Versiani will allow you to use the content for education purposes. Below is a sample of the work, and below that is the terms of the free use of the content:
