Oral Maxillofacial Radiology offers a fresh approach to understanding and using the essential diagnostic modality of dentistry and oral & maxillofacial surgery. The book provides a practical, intuitive manual to allow the dentist or maxillofacial practitioner to understand advanced imaging and gain insight into the correct interpretation of radiographic evidence. Added to this, this supremely practical book aims to give its readers an understanding of the frequency of presentation of common types of lesions, and the clinical impact within a prospective diagnosis of certain conditions. For this reason, the book is likely to be very useful to clinicians using advanced imaging equipment for imaging applications connected to implant placement and other types of surgery, as well as those individuals interested in the diagnostic interpretation of radiological images.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Therefore, this textbook would seem best utilized as a reference by those who routinely practice interpretive and diagnostic oral maxillofacial radiology, or by clinicians who practice in medical environments where advanced imaging is employed.”  (Journal of Clinical Orthodontics, 1 August 2012)

“For those (readers) who already have fundamental radiological knowledge, the book is a fresh innovation with evidence-based radiological explanation of diseases with emphasis on advanced diagnostic methods.”  (Danish Dental Association, 1 December 2012)

“The superb image quality and succinct text make it easy to recommend to dental practitioners, maxillofacial specialists and residents embarking on their careers.”  (Int. J. Oral Maxillofac. Surg, 2012)

"Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology: A diagnostic approach (author David MacDonald, Wiley Blackwell, 2011) offers a wealth of information in two clearly delimited, easily accessible dimensions ... The book is soundly sequenced from the initial concepts to the more complex ideas and techniques. Opening with Part 1, which creates a roadmap to the subject, this guided tour is rich in descriptions of diagnostic and management strategies." (Indiana University School of Dentistry, 2011)
