This major practical postgraduate textbook will be an essential reference for trainees, established midwives and obstetricians. It is comprehensive - covering general obstetrics, maternal disease, fetal medicine and labour, delivery and the puerperium. It presents a wide range of established management options. Many traditional texts are based on a single individual's experience and views; here all the contributors to each section have been asked to provide their preferred management in all areas of their section. Each resulting chapter attempts to reflect a range of acceptable practice. This means that the reader can choose which option or combination of options is most appropriate for a particular clinical case. It is practical. It addresses those difficult questions which arise in practice and often stem from the constraints of time, facilities, finance and patient acceptability, as much as from medical facts. It is written by a panel of contributors who are both leaders in their field and who represent practice in the USA, Europe and Australasia. The presentation of each topic has been standardised as far as possible, making information easier to extract from the book. The management options for each major topic, and guidance on key practical procedures are summarised in 'boxes' for quick referral.

The book contains both black-and-white and two-color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Bart Paul Vandenberghe, DDS, MS, PhD (c)(University of Maryland Baltimore College of Dental Surgery)
Description: This is an elaborate and reader-friendly guide to the basics - theoretical as well as clinical — of dental radiography. This third edition includes an interactive CD-ROM with animations, case studies, and exercises. Previous editions were published in 2000 and 1996.
Purpose: The main objective of the authors is to provide a theoretical overview of the basics in dental radiography and to implement in detail the associated clinical techniques. The authors succeed with this student-friendly, step-by-step guide for future dental radiographers.
Audience: This is a basic teaching guide for dental students and dental hygiene students.
Features: The six parts of this manual provide a step-by-step guide to learning basic radiographic skills: radiation physics, biology and safety; dental x-ray equipment basics; dental radiographer basics; dental radiographic techniques; normal anatomy; and an introduction to interpretation and diagnosis. It provides an exhaustive introduction to the basics and clinical techniques of dental radiography with clear objectives, key words, tables, and figures. Exercises end each chapter and are included on the CD-ROM. Digital and advanced imaging topics are only briefly introduced. For these topics as well as for any detailed radiographic interpretation of pathologies, more detailed books should be consulted.
Assessment: This is a very clear, step-by-step teaching guide for future radiographers, introducing basic principles and techniques. The third edition offers some additional teaching aids, like the CD-ROM. This manual, however, does not cover advanced oral radiology topics like advanced techniques and interpretation. White and Pharoah do include the latter in Oral Radiology: Principles and Interpretations, 5th edition (Mosby, 2004), making it as complete as an oral radiology bible.
Michael F. Gewerth
This book contains a complete course in dental x-ray technique and theory. It is intended to teach radiographic technique and theory to dental hygiene students. This book is intended for first and second-year dental hygiene students as well as a refresher course for practicing dental hygienists. The illustrations are excellent. The questions and answers at the end of the chapters were extremely helpful. The appearance of the book is excellent. The book illustrates the material for theory and serves as guide for the dental hygiene student. The book is also an excellent reference guide for practicing dental hygienist and in-service training.

    Great textbook!

    This company really knows how to put together a textbook. The layout is fabulous: short, concise chapters with great review questions at the end of each chapter. It's very straight-forward and makes a difficult topic easier to understand. I love it when my instructors choose textbooks from Evolve.
