dc.description.abstractA retrospective twenty-four month study was conducted in which fifteen dentists in the Boston area were surveyed to determine their degree of satisfaction with the use of the intraoral dental xeroradiographic imaging system, the Xerox 110 System. The written survey questionnaire, followed by a personal interview visit, focused on the comparison between the use of the Xerox 110 System and the conventional film made of silver halide crystals. No improvement was reported in the detection of dental caries in comparing the xeroradiographic image with conventional film. The diagnosis of early and advanced periodontal disease was shown to have some degree of improvement while the diagnosis of occult findings was not considerably improved by the use of xeroradiography. No improved quality of patient care nor increased diagnostic ability during post-operative evaluations were observed. No remarkable difference in the ease of operational use and clinician acceptability was shown between the two modalities. Patient acceptability of the thicker and more rigid xeroradiographic cassette was reported as less acceptable as compared to conventional film. There was a high rate of satisfaction in the simplified viewing process provided in xeroradiographs. An assessment of difference in cost effectiveness was not statistically significant. One major advantage shown by the entire sample in this study was the significant reduction (decrease) in radiation exposure (20-60%)using the xeroradiographic system.en_US
