Abstract

in English, Chinese

OBJECTIVE:

This study aimed to compare the porcelain-fused-to-metal (PFM) crown artifact in the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the two magnetic resonance deartifact techniques in studying the application value of the propeller-fast spin-echo T2-weighted sequence (FSE T2WI) in troubleshooting PFM crown artifacts.

METHODS:

A total of 48 patients with right mandible first molar crown who underwent MRI head examination were chosen as subjects in the study. According to different metal substrates, PFM crowns were divided to three types, namely, nickel-chromium alloy crown, cobalt-chromium alloy crown and titanium crown. The patients received two MRI scan sequences, that is, FSE T2WI and propeller-FSE T2WI sequences. The MRI artifacts areas in two sequences were measured.

RESULTS:

The difference between FSE T2WI and propeller-FSE T2WI sequences in three kinds of PFM crown was significant (P<0.05).

CONCLUSIONS:

Propeller-FSE T2WI sequence technique can effectively reduce the metal artifacts of various PFM crowns.
