Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology: A Diagnostic Approach, Second Edition is a revised edition of this illustrated reference to the wide range of diagnostic imaging modalities available for investigating lesions affecting the face and jaws. Written by experts in various specialty areas, including medical radiologists, oral and maxillofacial radiologists, functional imaging specialists, and radiation oncologists, the book includes more than 450 clinical images demonstrating the concepts discussed, with more images covering cone beam computed tomography, positron emission tomography, and interventional procedures.

Extensive flowcharts are provided, detailing the steps of diagnosis and decisions and presenting practical approaches which focus on the most important and frequently encountered lesions. Differences in the demographic, clinical and radiological presentations are discussed, along with differing outcomes of treatment due to ethnicity. The book is built on a solid evidence base and includes full references to the scientific literature.
