Oral Surgery, Oral Medicine, Oral Pathology, Oral Radiology, and Endodontology, 104 (6). 821 - 828 . ISSN 1528-395X
Measurement of cortical thickness and subjective assessment of cortical porosity on panoramic radiographs are methods previously reported for diagnosing osteoporosis. The aims of this study were to determine the relative efficacy of the mandibular cortical index and cortical width in detecting osteoporosis, both alone and in combination, and to determine the optimal cortical width threshold for referral for additional osteoporosis investigation.
