ABSTRACT:ICDAS is a clinical coding system for caries detection. The detection of exact status of the carious lesions is often challenging since it holds the key in drawing out a treatment plan for its prevention and management. The objective of the study is to assess the Inter Examiner reproducibility in the Detection of Occlusal Caries using ICDAS II by Unaided Visual and Enhanced Visual Examination.
Methods: This observational study assessed 80 occlusal surfaces of human molars. Two primary examiners and other 4 examiners independently scored occlusal caries status using ICDAS II 0,1,2 criteria without magnification and under 3x magnification using operating microscope. Kappa statistics was performed
Results: In the current study, inter examiner agreement was good to fair and has acceptable reproducibility with or without magnification using ICDAS II criteria. Conclusions: Reliability and va
