OBJECTIVE Panoramic radiographs, computerized tomography (CT), and conventional spiral tomographic (Scanora, Soredex, Helsinki, Finland) radiographs were compared for their ability to locate the mandibular canal in the buccolingual direction. Furthermore, the relationship between the cortication of the mandibular canal in panoramic radiographs and the location of the canal in both computerized and conventional tomographic radiographs was assessed. STUDY DESIGN The buccolingual location of the… CONTINUE READING
