Radiographic Interpretation: Review and Update

Advances in imaging technology have brought a wealth of new and revitalized imaging modalities to the dental office. Selection of radiographic examinations, both two and three dimensional, in light of patient’s concerns over radiation exposure has become an important topic.

  • Selection of radiographic examinations. Understanding and applying the new Radiographic Guidelines to everyday dental practice.
    • Intraoral and panoramic.
    • Advanced imaging.

    • Caries.
    • Marginal periodontitis.
    • Apical inflammatory lesions.
  • Radiographic interpretation of benign disease.
