Abstract

Introduction: The present study was aimed at evaluating common positioning errors on panoramic radiographs taken in the Radiology Department of Mashhad Dental School. Materials and methods: The study sample included 1,990 digital panoramic radiographs taken in the Radiology Department of Mashhad Dental School by a Planmeca Promax (Planmeca Oy, Helsinki, Finland), during a 2-year period (2010–2012). All radiographs, according to dentition and sex, were evaluated for positioning errors. Results: There were 1,927 (96.8) panoramic radiographs with one or more errors. While the number of errors in each image varied between one and five, most images had one error (48.4). The most common error was that the tongue was not in contact with the hard palate (94.8).
