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.
