The Knowledge Of Landmarks And Errors In Dental Radiology Among Undergraduate Students

Author: CHITRALEKHA B, MANJARI CHAUDHARY
Abstract: In this period of profoundly specific clinical imaging, an assessment of the teeth and alveolar bone is practically inconceivable without the utilization of radiographs. The field of dental imaging has gone through several technological advances over the last several years. Most of the x-ray based diagnostic technology has been digitized, with the possibility of low dose 3D computed tomography imaging. In addition to that many newer optical imaging techniques have also been adopted in a more therapeutic imaging of the dental patient. The interpretation of radiographs plays an important role in the dental office. Several abnormalities are diagnosed solely by or with help of radiographs. For this reason the training in the interpretation of dental radiographs for the proper identification of landmarks and lesions and for distinguishing them is very much needed. However, it seems that knowledge on digital technology as well as on it’s manipulation is still lacking in clinical practice, which may contribute to errors. The purpose of this survey was to bring an understanding about the knowledge of landmarks and errors in dental radiology among undergraduate (UG) dental students.A questionnaire including 14 questions were prepared and circulated among various dental colleges and the result was tabulated and exported to SPSS (Statistical Package for the Social Sciences). There were 142 respondents in the survey conducted. The study was carried out within a time period of December 2019 to March 2020. Ethical approval was obtained from the scientific review board. The study assessed the knowledge of students in landmarks and errors while observing radiographs and it was found that the majority of the students have misinterpreted the radiographs, which can be due to the lack of proper guidance given while they were proposing radiographic interpretations. All the parameters that we compared were found to be statistically significant henceforth reinforcing its importance clinically.
