This is a new edition of a classic text that presents all of the information that a dental student 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 included, such as cone beam CT, and the author team has been expanded 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 ensure both exam success and confidence and safety in the clinical situation. Topics address the whole curriculum and range from the physics of imaging to radiation protection and image interpretation.

Suitable for undergraduate students and post-graduates alike, this book has become essential reading for all readers who intend to practice clinical dentistry.
