ALDOUS, Jay A.; LOWDER, Gary  e  BOSEMAN, Jerald. Evaluation of a Caries Detecting Software System. Odovtos [online]. 2017, vol.19, n.3, pp.61-67. ISSN 2215-3411.

The diagnostic accuracy of caries detecting software that assesses density in digital radiographs was questioned. Analysis of radiographs of extracted teeth using Logicon revealed a deviation in specificity for caries from visual examination of the teeth as well as from their radiographic images. Subsequent preparation of teeth similar to a clinical preparation for a restoration revealed a marked deviation from the Logicon analysis. Radiographic interpretation of early caries and resultant treatment decisions are a multifaceted complex process that is not simplified by desired but unreliable current computerized technique.
