Overview

New edition of a popular textbook of dental radiography and radiology for undergraduate and post-graduate dental students and general dental practitioners The volume is now available with an all new online self assessment questions and answers module and an online, regularly updated, summary of the current UK ionising radiation legislation and guidance on good practice for all dental practitioners as well as a summary of the latest UK guidance in relation to the use of Cone Beam CT (CBCT) equipment. The self assessment questions have been specially prepared for each of the 32 Chapters to enable students to assess their own knowledge and understanding as they prepare for examinations. These include a mixture of single best answer and multiple correct answer questions, drag and drop identification of radiological anatomy as well as new examples of various pathological conditions to enable practice of diagnostic skills.
