Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a powerful and versatile imaging modality utilizied in various medical fields. With the emergence of commercial medical MRI in the 1980s, several MRI applications, such as cardiac, abdominal, and cranial, started to evolve medical diagnostic imaging. Three-dimensional MRI assessment of morphology and function without ionizing radiation attracted attention in dental applications during 1980s. Dental applications of MRI, however; was sparse compared to other medical applications. Most work in the field of dental MRI aimed at imaging soft tissues, testing the potential of implant planning, and imaging of the morphology and function of the temporo mandibular joint.
Peer reviewed Magnetic Resonance Imaging Journal, is an important and reliable source of current information on developments in the field. It publishes original papers, reviewed papers, case studies and short communications on the fundamentals, theoretical as well as applications and management of Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
