Kvaal and Solhiem’s method includes both morphological and radiological parameters such as 1. Apical translucency in mm (T) 2. Periodontal ligament retraction in mm (P) 3. Pulp length (PL) (radiograph) 4. Radiographic root length on mesial surface (RL) 5. Pulp width at cement–enamel junction on radiographs (PWC) 6. Radiographic root width at cement–enamel junction (RWC) 7.
