Objectives: Radiology reports are the most important method of communication between the clinician and the radiologist. In dentomaxillofacial radiology, cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) reporting is a new subject. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the satisfaction and expectations of dentists from CBCT reporting as well as contributing to standardization and improvement in the quality of CBCT reports.

Materials and Methods: Dentists were invited to participate in the survey by e-mail. The participants filled out a survey with their demographic data and responded to 14 questions regarding CBCT reports. The responses regarding gender, age, title, institution, and department were analysed and compared with chi-square tests.

Results: In total, 185 dentists (97 females and 88 males) participated in the study. Participants reported that the adequacy level of the reports were mostly moderate (47%) and that the source of adequate reports was university hospitals (49.2%). Most dentists (57%) reported that they needed a consultant radiologist in clinical practice on a part time basis. There was a statistically significant difference (p<0.05) between participants’ genders, age groups, titles, and departments regarding the source of the adequate reports.

Conclusions: The results of this study showed that most of the dentists were not satisfied about the proficiency of CBCT reports. More than half of those surveyed thought that “not reading” the radiology reports might give them a legal liability. Most dentists wanted to consult with the radiologist before and after patient examinations. 

Amaç: Radyoloji raporları klinisyen ve radyolog arasındaki en önemli iletişim yöntemidir. Diş hekimliği radyolojisinde, konik-ışınlı bilgisayarlı tomografi (KIBT) raporlaması yeni bir konudur. Bu çalışmanın amacı, KIBT raporlarından diş hekimlerinin memnuniyet ve beklentilerini değerlendirmek, aynı zamanda KIBT raporlarının kalitesinde iyileştirmeye  ve raporların standardizasyonuna katkıda bulunmaktır.

Gereç ve Yöntem: Diş hekimleri hazırlanan ankete e-posta yoluyla davet edildi. Katılımcılar, demografik bilgilerini ve KIBT raporlarıyla ilgili 14 sorudan oluşan bir anketi doldurdu. Cinsiyet, yaş, unvan, çalıştığı kurum ve branşlara göre verilen cevaplar analiz edilerek ki-kare testiyle karşılaştırıldı.

Bulgular: Çalışmaya toplam 185 diş hekimi (97 kadın ve 88 erkek) katıldı. Katılımcılar, raporların yeterlilik düzeyinin çoğunlukla orta düzeyde (% 47) olduğunu ve yeterli raporların kaynağının üniversite hastaneleri olduğunu belirtmiştir (% 49,2). Çoğu diş hekimi (% 57) klinik uygulamalarda yarı zamanlı olarak bir radyoloji uzmanına ihtiyaç duyduklarını bildirmiştir. Yeterli olarak görülen raporların kaynağı ile katılımcıların cinsiyetleri, yaş grupları, unvanları ve branşları arasında ilgili istatistiksel olarak anlamlı bir fark vardı (p <0.05).

Sonuç: Bu çalışmanın sonuçları, diş hekimlerinin çoğunun KIBT raporlarının yeterliliğinden memnun olmadıklarını göstermiştir. Ankete katılanların yarısından fazlası, radyoloji raporlarının “okunmamasının” kendilerine yasal sorumluluk doğurabileceğini düşünmüştür. Çoğu diş hekimi, hastaları incelemelerinden önce ve sonra radyoloji uzmanına danışmak istemiştir.
