The objective of this study is to evaluate the accuracy of panoramic radiographs for diagnosing vertical asymmetry of the posterior mandible. The first part of the study used a model to evaluate the reproducibility of this particular panoramic machine. The tube traverse did not significantly affect the linear measurements, but the side of the machine where the structure was located produced an average of 2.1% variation in the total height of the mandible. In the second part of the study, the… CONTINUE READING
