Radiographic Diagnosis of Cancer

Cancer is one of the most dreaded disease experienced by men. It is one of the major health problems worldwide. Cancer is characterized by uncontrollable invasive growth of abnormal cells which have the tendency to spread through lymph nodes. Prognosis of cancer depends on the location, size and clinical staging of the lesion.

Early detection is proportional to the treatment outcome. Dentists are the first line of defense against oral cancer since the oral cavity is their line. It is necessary that dentists be familiar with clinical signs of malignancy, as well as early radiographic changes that may be seen in plain dental x ray films and highly specialized diagnostic tools like CT Scans and MRI.
