About this book


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.
