The aim of this book is to equip the reader with all the information required in order to perform imaging effectively and safely. The authors cover conventional imaging techniques and CBCT, explain how to avoid technical errors and artifacts, and help to identify frequent dentomaxillofacial lesions. After opening discussion of the choice of X-ray equipment and materials, intraoral radiography, panoramic radiography, cephalometric radiology, and cone-beam computed tomography are discussed in turn. With the aid of many illustrated examples, patient preparation and positioning are thoroughly described for each modality. The normal radiographic anatomy and landmarks are then discussed, prior to thorough coverage of frequently encountered lesions. Accompanying images display the characteristic features of each lesion. Further topics to be addressed are safety precautions for patients and staff. The book is an ideal aid for all dental practitioners and dental students.
