Abstract Share this page

Efficacy of two panoramic-based indices (Mandibular Cortex Index (MCI) and the height of mandibu- lar inferior cortex (CI)) were compared with a bone mineral density (BMD) of the lumbar area L2-L4 by dual- energy x-ray absorptiometry in 130 women as diagnostic key. MCI is a simple three-graded classification. It changes in the bone cortex of mandible and allows to distinguish normal and osteopenic/osteoporotic women. Correlations between mandibular cortex groups and between the height of cortical bone of man- dible and the bone mineral density were significant. The efficacy of the panoramic-based mandibular indices in diagnosing osteopenia/osteoporosis is high. The results of this study indicated that panoramic dental radiographs should be used to assess the patient’s status regarding osteoporosis.
