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, advanced imaging techniques like CT and MRI have only been partially implemented for maxillofiacial questions. This book bridges the gap between traditional maxillofacial imaging and advanced medical imaging. The authors 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 who work with severe maxillofacial disorders. This book is also useful for clinicians who are dealing with maxillofacial region.
