The aim of this study was to evaluate the image quality of digital panoramic radiographs and its correlation with the detectability of normal anatomical structures. The effects of image enhancement on the detectability were also studied. A total of 500 panoramic images (DICOM format) obtained with a storage phosphor-based digital system were evaluated. The image quality and the detectability of selected normal anatomical structures were evaluated in all images. Images with inadequate image… CONTINUE READING
