Expectations of the Dentomaxillofacial Radiology Specialist from Radiology Request

Modern technology has enabled significant advances in imaging methods, thus increasing our options in head and neck imaging. Radiography that is used routinely in clinics in the identification of pathologies in this region is often able to provide the dentist with sufficient information, but will sometimes be inadequate. In recent years, dental volumetric tomography has been an indispensable step in implant planning. Evaluation of factors such as the spread of the pathology, its internal structure and the malign/benign distinction, is made possible only by advanced imaging techniques. It is vital that the determination of the imaging method is goal-oriented. The expectation of the dentomaxillofacial radiology specialist from the dentist who refers the patient, is to receive the necessary information, preliminary diagnosis and differential diagnosis about the patient whose clinical information he/she has not seen, through appropriate communication methods. It is a requirement of the multidisciplinary approach needed to make the correct diagnosis that the patient’s demographic information, systemic condition and the existence, duration and progress of any symptoms are communicated to the radiologist.
