With more than 1,000 high-quality radiographs and illustrations, Oral Radiology: Principles and Interpretation, 7th Edition visually demonstrates the basic principles of oral and maxillofacial radiology along with their clinical application. First, you'll gain a solid foundation in radiation physics, radiation biology, and radiation safety and protection. Then you'll learn intraoral and extraoral imaging techniques, including specialized techniques such as MRI and CT. The second half of the book focuses on how to recognize the radiographic features of pathologic conditions and interpret radiographs accurately. This edition also includes new chapters on forensics and cone-beam imaging. Written by oral radiology experts Stuart White and Michael Pharoah, this bestselling book helps you provide state-of-the-art care!
"This is a valuable source of information that should be in the armamentarium of any dentist in training or wanting to develop their competence in oral radiology." BRITISH DENTAL JOURNAL VOLUME 217 NO. 2 JUL 25 2014

"The special attractiveness of this book comes from the pleasing combination of well-structured and simple explanations complemented by more than 1000 high-quality radiographs and illustrations which cover more or less the whole area of oral and maxillofacial radiology... Summa summarum, this book can be strongly recommended to the personal library of both students and clinicians." European Journal of Orthodontics, 2009
"The book provides a means for clinicians to develop a quality control by comparing images to the gold standard in terms of geometry and contrast, subsequently furthering competency and thus attaining the maximal diagnostic yield possible when exposing to ionising radiation. This is a valuable source of information that should be in the armamentarium of any dentist in training or wanting to develop their competence in oral radiology."
