Comparison of the Image Quality of Intraoral Radiograph (IOPA) and Orthopantomograms (OPG)
Abstract: OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study is to compare the image quality of both intraoral periapical radiographs and orthopantomograms according to the different dental regions (maxillary and mandibular incisor, canine, premolar and molar). MATERIALS AND METHODS The study is to be carried out on 50 patients. Intraoral periapical radiographs and orthopantomograms are to be obtained. All measurements were performed by an oral radiologist. The radiographs evaluated by 50 observers. The image quality of both intraoral periapical radiographs and orthopantomograms for each dental region were assessed. RESULTS The study shows that intraoral periapical radiographs in general have a better image quality compared orthopantomograms. CONCLUSION The result of this study has shown that intraoral periapical radiographs in general have a better image quality compared orthopantomograms.
