[7] The subjects were selected from those individuals who had a lateral cephalometric radiograph taken for diagnosis purposes.
Lateral cephalometric radiographs were taken according to the following criteria: (1) natural head position with teeth in centric occlusion, (2) the lips in rest position, and (3) the lateral cephalometric radiograph was taken at a standard source-to-cassette holder distance of 130 mm (magnification, 1.09) with a Planmeca Cephalometer (PM 2002 EC Proline, Helsinki, Finland).
Gonial angle measured from panoramic radiograph (OPG) is found to be more reliable than lateral cephalometric radiograph. It is difficult to measure gonial angle accurately on the cephalometric radiograph as there is superimposition of the left and right sides angle.
A lateral cephalometric radiograph showed that this mass was significantly superior to the dentition in the antral inferior nasal region (Figure 2).
Most of the authors have used lateral cephalometric radiograph, but because of least amount of superimposition, orthopantomogram (OPG) is considered a more accurate radiograph to evaluate the position of the third molar.9,14-17
Preoperative radiographic analysis, including a lateral cephalometric radiograph and a panoramic dental x-ray, are necessary to assist the surgeon in surgical planning.
During the initial visit, appointment was scheduled for complete medical examination, lateral cephalometric radiograph, panoramic radiograph, and impressions for study models, maxillomandibular relations and face bow transfer.
However, because of disadvantages such as being an expensive method and the additional radiation dose received for tomographic imaging, lateral cephalometric radiograph analysis is a valuable and reliable method (13).
The horizontal interclinoid dural fold sometimes calcify partially or completely in some peoples, which can be seen and diagnosed on lateral cephalometric radiograph.3
Lateral Cephalometric radiograph is a valuable diagnostic tool for the orthodontist.
