Author information

School of Dental Surgery, Pembroke Place, Liverpool.


The increased awareness of the possible harmful effects of ionizing radiation has resulted in concern at the number of panoramic radiographs taken in General Dental Practice. A study has been carried out to examine the diagnostic value obtained from panoramic radiographs taken at 9-10 years of age. Nine-hundred-and-eighty-two radiographs were examined and 261 (26.5 per cent) showed findings which would be of significance in orthodontic diagnosis and treatment planning.
