This comprehensive, well-established textbook presents the basic principles of clinical radiology. It's designed not only for students in dental hygiene and dental assisting programs, but for practicing hygienists and assistants who'd like a review for interpreting radiographs and troubleshooting errors. Describing techniques with step-by-step procedures and illustrations, the topics include: basic x-ray generation, image formation, film mounting, biologic effects of radiation, lesions, infection control, film processing and interpretation, intraoral and extraoral techniques, panoramic radiography, patient management, and legal considerations.

  • Logical organization of topics presents the material in an efficient way for better comprehension and enhanced readability.
  • "Step-by-step" procedure boxes clearly illustrate the proper techniques for performing routine and complex radiographic procedures.
  • Boxes highlight common errors encountered when dealing with radiographic technique and provide remedies for resolving the problem.
  • Each chapter includes a content outline, educational objectives, and key terms.
  • A comprehensive glossary is located at the back of the book for quick reference.
  • The inclusion of tables, boxes, line art, and illustrations are important tools for student learning.
  • A two-color design makes the images more instructive, interesting, and appealing.
