FUENTES, Ramón; ARIAS, Alain  e  BORIE-ECHEVARRIA, Evelyn. Panoramic Radiographs: An Invaluable Tool for the Study of Bone and Teeth Components in the Maxillofacial Region. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2021, vol.39, n.1, pp.268-273. ISSN 0717-9502.

The panoramic radiograph is in all likelihood, the routine exam most required by dentists in the clinic worldwide. Among the advantages of using this type of radiograph, is that it is inexpensive, quick and also safer in digital format since it reduces the radiation dose and time of exposure. Its potential as a diagnostic tool is based on the possibility to explore almost all of the maxillofacial area, allowing a proper anatomic and morphological study of different areas at the same time. In this review, we aimed to provide an overview of the multiple uses of panoramic radiographs, highlighting its potential as a diagnostic tool and also its importance in some specialized areas of dentistry.
