VAZQUEZ DIEGO, J. et al. The utilization of the Fitzgerald radiographic technique as a diagnostic method in implantology and periodontics. Av Odontoestomatol [online]. 2009, vol.25, n.4, pp.203-208. ISSN 2340-3152.

We presented a work in which the importance of the Fitzgerald technique as a diagnostic method, both in oral implantology and periodontics, is emphasised. On the other hand, it could be demonstrated its higher precision regarding the size and shape of the oral structures to be radiographed, as compared with other intraoral and extraoral techniques, such as panoramic radiography, which magnify the resulting images. Based on the exposed herein, a detailed explanation of the Fitzgerald intraoral radiographic method is provided, after reviewing the literature on this subject.

Keywords : Fitzgerald technique; oral implantology; periodontics; radiology; isometrics.
