teleradiography

 [tel″ĕ-ra″de-og´rah-fe]
1. a telehealth technique consisting of electronic transmission of radiographic images.
2. radiography with the radiation source about 2 meters from the subject, more nearly securing parallelism of the rays and minimizing distortion.

tel·e·ra·di·og·ra·phy

(tel'ĕ-rā'dē-og'ră-fē),
Radiography with the x-ray tube positioned about 2 m from the film thereby securing practical parallelism of the x-rays to minimize geometric distortion; the standard configuration for chest radiography. Compare: air-gap technique.
Synonym(s): teleroentgenography
[G. tēle, distant, + radiography]

teleradiography

/tele·ra·di·og·ra·phy/ (-ra″de-og´rah-fe)
1. interpretation of images transmitted over telephone lines or by satellite.
2. radiography with the radiation source 6.5 to 7 feet from the subject to maximize the parallelism of the rays and minimize distortion.

teleradiography

radiography with the x-ray tube located approximately 6 ft away from the plate in order to more nearly secure parallelism of the rays.

A profile teleradiography allows evaluating, through cephalometric analysis, the relations between maxilla and mandible, while front teleradiography allows observing the degree of asymmetry and mandibular deviation.
Teleradiography, on the other hand, can only afford sagittal and vertical evaluation of the anterior teeth.
