Abstract

Ultrasonic System (USG) emits high frequency pulse-echo ultrasound wave to assess specific acoustic impedance of mineral content of the body of enamel lesion allowing distinction between an intact and demineralized enamel surface. Studies have indicated the potential of USG for use in detection of enamel demineralization and initial enamel caries.
