New research suggests tub analysis may help prevent cavities
NEW YORK — A new study published in the journal Preventive Medicine finds that a simple test called “tubography” may help predict whether a person will develop cavities.
The study, led by University of California, San Francisco, researchers found that tubography was able to predict whether someone was likely to develop cavids or other problems in more than 70 percent of patients who were followed for a year.
It was the first study to examine this method.
The researchers used a standardized method to measure the size and shape of the cavity and compared it to an objective, non-invasive technique called a fluoroscopy.
A third method, called a “tube-and-tube” method, is currently the standard test for determining if a person has cavities, but it is not well-suited for predicting cavities in people who are not at risk for cavities or who are already well-protected against cavities by their physical health.
The University of Washington’s Dr. Gary Gensheimer and colleagues were looking for a way to improve the quality of the test and to improve its accuracy.
The tub analysis method was tested on about 1,200 patients, with about half of them being between the ages of 20 and 40.
The test consisted of a thin, transparent tube that was placed into a small water bowl.
The tubes were connected to a computer.
The water bowl was filled with a solution that contained sodium chloride and potassium chloride.
After about 15 minutes, the water was cooled and the tubes were removed.
The tube that had been connected to the water bowl became a “tunnel” and was able the detect a “bubble” of water in the water that was “hidden” by the tubes.
The researchers measured the size of the bubble and found it to be between 2 and 6 millimeters in diameter.
The next step was to analyze the tube to see if it could detect cavities within the cavity, which the researchers did by measuring the volume of the fluid that was being pulled into the tube.
The tube was filled up with a different solution containing a different amount of sodium chloride.
The amount of water being pulled in by the water, which was now diluted to 0.01 percent, showed that it was likely that the bubble was created when the water in that particular tube was drawn into the chamber, which resulted in a higher concentration of sodium and potassium in the fluid.
The scientists then analyzed the fluid for the presence of other substances that could trigger the formation of a cavity.
They found that a high concentration of potassium and sodium in the chamber fluid could trigger a cavity, but that the concentration of other compounds such as magnesium and calcium in the solution could not.
They also found that the levels of these other substances were not associated with the frequency of cavities reported by the patients.
A similar study conducted by the University of Arizona found that it is possible to determine whether someone has a cavity in a urine sample by measuring their levels of calcium and magnesium.
A recent study conducted at the University at Buffalo, however, found that urine tests could not accurately predict the risk of cavitations and that a urine test could not detect the presence or level of any of the other substances linked to cavitations.
The University of Buffalo study also found no correlation between the presence and level of other chemicals that are thought to be involved in cavitations, such as the presence, level and density of sodium in urine and the presence in the blood of a substance called methanol, which is known to be a chemical that can trigger cavities and can also be found in certain foods.
