Image interpretation is performed routinely. For most clinicians, the interpretation of common diseases such as dental caries and periodontal disease is rote; the imaging features have been seen many times over. When an abnormality, perhaps not seen since dental school days is identified, the task can be more challenging. Using case-based examples, this lecture will relate diseases in the jaws with the discrete radiologic features they produce on intra-oral, panoramic and computed tomographic images, thereby creating the vital link that marries the foundational sciences that underpin disease development with their imaging features.
