    Abstract

    Visual comparison of antemortem and postmortem bitewing radiographs of children and adolescents were made by observers with a range of experience using an established protocol. There was no statistically significant difference between the sensitivity, specificity and accuracy of the test results between children (6–9 years) and adolescents (8–11 years). The average sensitivity, specificity and accuracy of the pooled results for children was marginally less than for adults, but the difference was not statistically significant.
