Introduction:
Dental caries is dramatically common among people. The aim of this study was to evaluate the agreement of paper prints and film prints and
monitor in detection of dentinal caries in digital panoramic radiography.
Materials and methods:
In this analytical study, radiographic images of 150 patients referred to a private clinic and who needed panoramic radiographs for various reasons, were used. Images were printed on paper and film. Dentinal caries in molars were classified into three categories; with caries, unknown
and without caries. Data were collected in checklist and recorded in SPSS 22 Kappa coefficient rate of the data was used for obtaining agreement between the paper prints and film prints and also between monitor and film prints.
Results:
Kappa coefficient between the paper prints and film prints was 0.88 and between monitor and film prints was 0.92.
Conclusion:
According to the results of this study, paper prints could be useful in diagnosis of dentinal caries in panoramic radiographies.
