The effect of horizontal X-ray beam angulation on the detection of furcation defects of mandibular first molars in intraoral radiography.


OBJECTIVES The aim was to investigate the effect of changes in horizontal X-ray beam angulation in intraoral radiography on the detection accuracy of furcation defects in the mandibular first molar, and to examine the anatomical relationship between the roots and furcation area as a possible cause of changes in detectability. METHODS Simulated furcation… (More)
