This highly popular text presents everything that an undergraduate dental student, postgraduate student or general dental practitioner needs to know in order to safely capture high-quality clinical images and accurately interpret their findings.

In this latest edition, both traditional methods of imaging and new modalities are explored - specifically cone beam CT - and a new author has been brought on board to bring a fresh approach to the subject area.

Written in an accessible manner, which avoids unnecessary detail, each page spread has been carefully designed to ensure clarity of understanding by the reader to facilitate both examination success and confidence and safety in the clinical situation. Topics address the whole BDS curriculum and range from the physics of imaging and radiation protection to infection control and regional image interpretation.

Perfect for undergraduate students, post-graduate students, specialist trainees and general dental practitioners alike, Essentials of Dental Radiography and Radiology has become the ‘must-have’ volume for all readers who practice or who intend to practice clinical dentistry.
