NEJAIM, Yuri et al. Streamlining the radiation dose. Rev. Estomatol. Herediana [online]. 2015, vol.25, n.3, pp.238-245. ISSN 1019-4355.

There is now wide acceptance in medicine and dentistry that clinical practice should be as "evidence-based" as possible. Which is why many works have been published aimed at reducing radiation doses in different types of imaging modalities in dentistry, and that the major effect of radiation especially in children requires us to take necessary steps to rationalize their use especially the Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) method that provides the highest doses in dentistry. This review was written using this approach because of the purpose of streamlining the radiation dose in our patients. SEDENTEXCT team collected and analyzed relevant publications in the literature, guidelines that have proven effective in the past to reach recommendations, which can contribute to optimizing the use of ionizing radiation in dentistry, helping to see with others eyes the dose received by our patients. This paper recommend to consider the SEDENTEXCT project to prescribe more appropriately complementary exams we use daily
