In a conventional radiography, as a result of difference in attenuation of the x-rays, image is e formed. Structures do not appear on radiograph which lack sufficient density. If the density of the structure is too low, or the contrast is too low, to meet the required diagnostic needs it can be improved artificially by using contrast media. To increase the density or contrast of the structure, contrast agents are boon in dentistry and they also block x-ray transmission thereby helps in better visualization of the structures. Artificial contrast can be produced in variety of ways.
