Panoramic radiography and the dento-facially deformed patient

2004, Volumen 34, Número 1

Imaging of the dento-facial complex is currently revolutionised by new techniques. However, the panoramic radiograph (Dento-Facial Tomogram; DFT) remains up to now the common image for most clinical circumstances. DFT’s are flawed by inherent limitations of the panoramic technique. These are particularly apparent in dento-facially deformed patients. This article describes some technique adaptations to produce optimal DFT’s and provides information for correct interpretation.  (Rev Esp Ortod. 2004;34(1):021-028)

Key words:
Panoramic radiograph. Dento-facial tomogram. Dento-facial deformity.
