Measurements in Mandibular Pantomographic X-rays and Relation to Skeletal Mineral Densitometric Values.

The gold standard diagnostic modality for osteoporosis is dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA). But it is expensive and often unavailable. Studies have demonstrated that decreased bone mineral density (BMD) may affect mandibular bone morphometrically on radiographs. Such studies are rare in the Indian population. This study was conducted to evaluate… CONTINUE READING
