Aims: Jaws are seldom affected by pathologies which require resection for comprehensive management to ensure clearance and minimise recurrence. This paper highlights the importance of intra operative radiography in determining adequate margins during surgery. Methods: Ten patients were operated for surgical resection of jaws wherein the resected specimens were subjected to radiography for evaluating the adequacy of clear margins which was later sent for histopathology. Patients were followed up for least three years. Results: Intra operative radiograph revealed adequate clearance which was confirmed by histopathology. The follow up period was free of any disease thereof. Conclusion: Intra operative radiography is a helpful tool during surgical resection of pathologies afflicting the jaws. It proves to be a very economical, low hazard and a quick means to assist the operating surgeons in assessing the clearance of the margins.
