In order to evaluate the precision and accuracy of the radiographic assessment of intrabony defects on the distal surface of the lower 2nd molar using conventional free hand technique, a methodological study was performed on 25 patients. The error variance due to variability in the radiographic reproduction and examiner inconsistency… CONTINUE READING
