Abstract

MICRORADIOGRAPHIC studies of the human dental pulp vessels were prompted by the inadequate anatomical information on the pulpal vascular patterns, and by the statement that these vessels could not be visualized radiographically1. However, it has been shown that fine-contrast media of particle size 0.1–0.5µ (for example, ‘Thorotrast’, ‘Micropaque’) can be introduced by suction injection into the human dental pulp vessels and their vascular patterns demonstrated microradiographically2.
