Summary note:
"Diagnostic Imaging: Oral and Maxillofacial is the newest title in the popular Diagnostic Imaging series by Amirsys. This book is written primarily for dentists who currently use or plan to use CT or CBCT technology in their practices. It can also benefit radiologists interested in the head and neck region who would like a dentist's perspective. The authors are a large team of renowned oral and maxillofacial dentists and radiologists. Unlike most head and neck radiology books, this volume uses proper dental nomenclature and dental anatomy descriptions throughout. It offers a comprehensive review of the oral and maxillofacial complex and reviews the imaging of its common pathologies. It includes a complete section on differential diagnoses that offers an intuitive and simplified method of reviewing pathology according to its radiographic appearance. Featuring over 1,000 images, this volume has a unique focus on three-dimensional imaging rather than intraoral and extraoral plain film radiography. This approach provides the practitioner with a quick and easy reference to the radiographic appearance of the normal as well as abnormal oral and maxillofacial complex. The book includes three main sections: 1) imaging anatomy, which covers normal dental anatomy and nomenclature as well as radiographic anatomy of the oral and maxillofacial complex, 2) diagnostic imaging, which reviews the radiographic appearance of pathology that affects the oral region, and 3) a list of differential diagnoses, which offers a unique and simplified method of categorizing pathology according to radiographic appearance. Like all Amirsys radiology titles, the book also features easy-to-read bulleted text, detailed radiographic images, and superb medical illustrations"--Provided by publisher.
