The objective of this study was to assess the capability of graduating dental students to identify the causes of undiagnostic panoramic images and to interpret anatomic landmarks on panoramic films.
Seventeen dental schools were represented by 311 students.
A radiology faculty member at each institution completed a questionnaire that addressed lecture time 'and experience provided to students in panoramic radiography.
The faculty member administered a test instrument comprised of several panoramic radiographs that demonstrated one or more labeled anatomic structures, technical errors, or projection artifacts and multiple choice questions that addressed each entity.
The mean percentage correct for the tested population on the entire test instrument was 72.9%.
