As the penetration of X-rays is higher in the periapical inflammation area of bone destruction, more X-rays reach the periapical film; therefore, the radiogram appears radiolucent.
The radiographic examination consisted of the exposure of the specimens to radiation (90 KV, 15 mA, 0.6 seconds, at a distance of 10 to 13 mm) using periapical film. [15,17,18] The films were automatically processed.

According to endodontic literature, two radiographic techniques have been employed to capture an image of the tooth and its root onto a periapical film namely the paralleling and bisecting angle techniques.
Two diagnostic periapical radiographs (3 x 4 cm periapical film size, M-2 Comfort (Speed E, Agfa Dentus, Hanau, Germany) were taken of each patient, one with paralleling technique by using the EndoRay (Rinn Co) film holder and second radiograph with slight mesial agulation.
