Item description for Maxillofacial Imaging by T.A. Larheim...
Maxillofacial imaging has evolved dramatically over the past two decades with development of new cross-sectional imaging techniques. Traditional maxillofacial imaging was based on plain films and dental imaging. However, today's advanced imaging techniques with CT and MRI have only been partially implemented for maxillofacial questions. This book bridges the gap between traditional maxillofacial imaging and advanced medical imaging. We have applied CT and MRI to a variety of maxillofacial cases and these are illustrated with high-quality images and multiple planes. A comprehensive chapter on imaging anatomy is also included. This book is useful for oral and maxillofacial radiologists, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, dentists, radiologists, plastic surgeons, head and neck surgeons, and others that work with severe maxillofacial disorders.

Reviews - What do customers think about Maxillofacial Imaging?
Easy to read! Jun 8, 2007
I found the online review pages available at this site.com useful in deciding to purchase this book. When the book arrived, I found it very colorful and easy to read. I particularly appreciate the layout of the content which is quite composite. It does not just dwell on radiology of diseases, but it includes a good measure of pathology and surgical management of the disease entities discussed. I found the book to have a good clinical application and it is quite easy to relate to by, not only radiologists, but pathologists and surgeons.
I also showed the book to my program director in oral and maxillofacial radiology residency program. He also thought the quality of the color materials were excellent. I guess that explains why it costs a couple of hundreds to have the book.
This is a book I'll recommend to anyone involved in the diagnosis and management of head and neck cum oral and maxillofacial lesions.

Exceptional text on Maxillofacial imaging Mar 16, 2006
This text fills a vacuum in the diagnostic radiology for dentistry. The strength of the book lies in vast amount of high quality images. Most of the cases start with a panoramic radiograph or a periapical film, and then proceed to CT or MRI imaging. Exactly the way an Oral and Maxillofacial Radiologist will approach a case. This is a must text for maxillofacial radiology residents. For general dentists, who have started a Conebeam CT practice, this book will help you in your practice. The book is expensive, but it is worth every penny.
