Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Vera Ann Smith, CDA (University of Chicago Medical Center)
Description: The fundamental technique for taking intraoral and extraoral x-rays is described in this book. Information on the processing, developing, and interpretation of these x-rays is provided.
Purpose: The objective is to educate student hygienists and student assistants in the proper techniques of taking dental radiographs.
Audience: This book is written primarily for the hygienist and the dental assistant.
Features: This book is divided into four parts. There are practical exercises for independent study, and there are a broad range of examples and visual aides. The study questions at the beginning of each lesson are very useful. The answers, found at the end of the book, are a great idea. The appearance of the book is good, the cover is composed of earth colors, most illustrations are adequate, and the contents are black-and-white.
Assessment: This book has some good features, but basically it is repetitious of other oral radiography technique books already published.
