Description - Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology by David MacDonald
To the dentist or maxillofacial practitioner, radiology is an
essential diagnostic discipline and a valuable tool for treatment
planning. Now more than ever, dentists are often the first to
encounter lesions of the face and jaws and are frequently held
liable for recognizing pathologies and other sites of concern.
Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology: A Diagnostic Approach
provides clinicians of varied disciplines and skill levels a
practical and systematic approach to diagnosing lesions affecting
the face and jaws. Firmly grounded in evidence-based research, the
book presents a clear understanding of the clinical impact of each
lesion within a prospective diagnosis.
Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology is logically organized,
beginning with the basics of radiological diagnosis before
discussing each of the advanced imaging modalities in turn.
Modalities discussed include helical and cone-beam computed
tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, positron emission
tomography, and ultrasonography. Later chapters cover radiological
pathologies of the jaw, and also those of the head and neck
immediately outside the oral and maxillofacial region. Written by a
recognized expert in the field, Oral and Maxillofacial
Radiology contains a multitude of clinical images, practical
examples, and flowcharts to facilitate differential diagnosis.
