Paper Abstract

In order to systematically improve a diag nostic system it is desirable to meaningfully specify the objectives. In dental radiogra-phy it is practically impossible to obtain absolute agreement as to what these objectives are or should be. At least two, however, are obvious and have essential limits which provide a sound basis for discussion. They are respectively: 1) The reduction of hazards associated with the use of ionizing radiation, and 2) the improvement of diagnostic accuracy.
