The title Interpreting Dental Radiographs indicates the intended prac tical nature of this book. It is hoped that students, practitioners, dental radiologists and senior radiographers will find this straightforward volume a useful chairside as it covers the common, and some of the more rare, companion, radiological appearances seen within the field of dentistry. Medical radiologists should find the text and related radiographic examples a useful supplement to their knowledge of general radiology. The writer has attempted to indicate that interpretation of dental radiographs is not always simple and straightforward, particularly when considering periapical changes and neoplasms. Careful assess ment of the whole radiograph is essential to avoid the pitfall of developing 'tunnel vision'! No apology is given for the repetitive indication of the types of radiographic views necessary to illustrate structures and pathological processes. It is hoped that this will make students realise the importance of requesting the correct radiographic views for the condition under consideration. The few references given should open the field of further reading to those interested in dental radiology.

Is it ever appropriate to diagnose and treat oral and dental problems without knowing the full extent of the problem? With more than 50% of anatomical structures and associated pathologies located below the gingivae and unseen to the eye, that’s the reality without the use of high-quality, accurately interpreted radiographs. Atlas of Dental Radiography in Dogs and Cats presents hundreds of actual radiographic images, which are clearly labeled to facilitate accurate identification of normal and abnormal features. This valuable new atlas shows you exactly how to correlate common dental conditions with radiographic signs. Radiographs are also compared side by side with actual anatomical photographs to confirm surface landmarks visible on the radiographs. Correct positioning techniques for producing diagnostic radiographs as well as helpful tips and pitfalls when obtaining quality radiographs are logically presented. This approach helps you produce consistently high-quality radiographs, sharpen your interpretive skills, and confidently treat a wide range of dental problems. Presents the most logical and useful approach to dental and oral radiography, using actual anatomical photographs for accurate clinical correlation Depicts original and color-labeled radiographs side-by-side for accurate identification of normal and abnormal structures Helps both veterinarians and technicians take the best possible radiographs, interpret them accurately, make sound treatment decisions, and monitor results Provides clear, technical guidance for taking quality radiographs and identifying artefacts and results of improper imaging technique and film development Presents clear pictorial instructions – from 2 angles – for correct positioning of the X-ray beam and intraoral films Offers new opportunities for expanded professional services and revenues in your practice Provides proof of compliance with standards of care for medical record documentation, helping you legally protect yourself, your staff, and your practice
