Dental radiographs are usually used for the diagnosis of dental diseases like dental caries and periodontal disease in general dental practice. On the other hand, these include some information regarding systematic diseases such as osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, breast cancer, diabetes, and dementia that are underdiagnosed in a large number of asymptomatic patients. Since 1992, I have been investigation how to screen them effectively by dental radiographs in collaboration with many physicians. I present the overview of these studies in this lecture.
