Abstract

A retrospective audit on the quality of periapical and bitewing radiographs taken in a primary care setting

This audit studied the quality of radiographs taken throughout the countywide West Sussex Community Personal Dental Services (WSCPDS). It investigated whether quality was in? uenced by factors such as the use of radiograph positioners, automatic developers and patient co-operation problems. Many of the patients were individuals with special needs (part of the remit of the community dental services is to provide dental care for such patients). The results showed that of the 112 radiographs taken, 71% had no positioning or developing errors. The majority of errors were due to positioning problems rather than developing, therefore use of positioners should be strongly encouraged
