OBJECTIVES To evaluate the repeatability and reproducibility of the measurements for Mental Index (MI) and Panoramic Mandibular Index (PMI) on digital panoramic images. METHODS In this study, measurements for MI and PMI were carried out independently by two oral and maxillofacial radiologists on twenty digital panoramic images. Each observer repeated the measurements after a period of approximately one week. Paired t-tests and Pearson correlation coefficients were calculated to assess the… CONTINUE READING
