Fundamentals of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology provides a concise overview of the principles of dental radiology. The book offers a complete introduction to foundational knowledge and skills, emphasizing their application to clinical practice, with synopses of the most common osseous pathologic lesions and dental anomalies. Presenting essential information on topics ranging from basic science to intraoral and extraoral techniques, the book is illustrated with many clinical photographs and x–ray images.

Chapters cover fundamentals of radiology, including radiation generation, dosimetry, protection, techniques, and errors, and interpretation, including normal anatomy, caries, anomalies, and osseous pathology. A companion website presents exercises to train readers in radiographic interpretation. Fundamentals of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology is an indispensable guide for dental practitioners, dental students, and dental auxiliaries.
