MOREIRA, Helen Larice Oliveira; BRAZ, Marcylene Arruda  e  LARENTIS, Naiara Leites. Preferences among teachers in a Dental school regarding the way for digital radiographic visualization. Rev. ABENO [online]. 2017, vol.17, n.1, pp. 36-54. ISSN 1679-5954.

Dental School's graduates must be prepared to respond to the demands of society in all segments, being able to incorporate new technologies into their clinical practice. Teacher-student interactions influence the choices of the professional future. The aim of this study was to evaluate the opinion of dentists teaching dentistry on digital radiographic images and their preference among images printed on radiographic film, photographic paper or visualized on the computer screen. The 16 professors of a Dental School who have Dentistry degree evaluated four interproximal radiographs, three periapical, one panoramic and one digital lateral teleradiography visualized on the computer screen, printed on radiographic film and on photographic paper. Afterward, they answered a questionnaire containing open questions about the subject. It was found that 38% of teachers preferred to evaluate the images on the computer screen, another 38% preferred the images printed on Xray film and one teacher preferred the image printed on photographic paper. One teacher reported no difference between the computer screen and radiographic film. Only one teacher reported that there was no difference between viewing on the computer screen and on photographic paper. Thirteen (81%) are used for evaluating digital images, while three (19%) are not. Of the sixteen teachers, eight (50%) cited the advantages of digital images as sharpness, 2 (12%) cited the possibility of magnification and 6 (38%) cited different advantages, such as greater chance of correctness, ease of manipulation, Possibility of contrast, dispensing of light box and richness of details. It was possible to conclude that the teachers of the study had a divided preference between the computer screen and x-ray film, use digital images in clinical practice, did not have this subject at graduation and believe that it should be taught.
