Webinar: Radiographic caries detection is one of the most commonly performed tasks in the dental office. While new image receptors have many advantages over traditional film-based imaging, many clinicians report limitations in the ability to detect caries on radiographic images. The purpose of this presentation is to assess the components of the imaging chain with regard to their impact on caries detection, so that the clinician can optimize radiographic caries detection.

Educational Objectives

•    Discuss the effects of exposure factors and projection geometry on radiographic caries detection;
•    Delineate the differences between analog (film) and digital images for caries detection;
•    Discuss the impact of image enhancement on radiographic caries detection;
•    Describe how image output and viewing conditions can affect caries detection; and
•    Discuss the limitations of rotational imaging (extra-oral bitewings) on radiographic caries detection.
