Interpretation of 2D Dental Radiographs – A systematic approach.

Dental radiographs have been a valuable diagnostic tool in the dentist’s

armamentarium and are commonly being used in various dental practices across

Australia. A successful and systematic approach to radiographic interpretation

depends on thorough understanding of normal radiographic anatomy of the head

and neck. Dental practitioners should also be aware of all the pathologies and

especially those associated with systemic illnesses so that they can timely refer the

patients to the respective specialists. The lecture will mainly outline the basic steps

the clinicians must consider during 2D radiological examination of various

abnormalities of the jaws.
