The quality of a radiograph depicted by geometric and visual characteristics, in turn also depends on the quality of image receptors. Image receptors in dentistry have seen an enormous evolution trend from conventional x-ray films to the current generation of digital image receptors. The development of cost-effective image receptors is established in various types of imaging procedures. The current article provides an insight into the image receptors used in dental radiology.
