Course overview
High-quality dental radiography images
are vital to both patients and clinicians, contributing directly to diagnosis and treatment planning. Quality radiographs feature maximum detail to resolve fine objects. The images accurately show the teeth and anatomic structure without distortion or magnification. They also exhibit density and contrast further improving a dentist’s ability to diagnose and treatment plan. To ensure the dentist receives high quality radiographs every time, team members must focus on proper positioning, exposure, and processing during the acquisition process.
