Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology: A Diagnostic Approach
April 2011, Wiley-Blackwell
Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology is logically organized, beginning with the basics of radiological diagnosis before discussing each of the advanced imaging modalities in turn. Modalities discussed include helical and cone-beam computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, positron emission tomography, and ultrasonography. Later chapters cover radiological pathologies of the jaw, and also those of the head and neck immediately outside the oral and maxillofacial region. Written by a recognized expert in the field, Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology contains a multitude of clinical images, practical examples, and flowcharts to facilitate differential diagnosis.

“Therefore, this textbook would seem best utilized as a reference by those who routinely practice interpretive and diagnostic oral maxillofacial radiology, or by clinicians who practice in medical environments where advanced imaging is employed.” (Journal of Clinical Orthodontics, 1 August 2012)
“For those (readers) who already have fundamental radiological knowledge, the book is a fresh innovation with evidence-based radiological explanation of diseases with emphasis on advanced diagnostic methods.” (Danish Dental Association, 1 December 2012)
“The superb image quality and succinct text make it easy to recommend to dental practitioners, maxillofacial specialists and residents embarking on their careers.” (Int. J. Oral Maxillofac. Surg, 2012)
"Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology: A diagnostic approach (author David MacDonald, Wiley Blackwell, 2011) offers a wealth of information in two clearly delimited, easily accessible dimensions ... The book is soundly sequenced from the initial concepts to the more complex ideas and techniques. Opening with Part 1, which creates a roadmap to the subject, this guided tour is rich in descriptions of diagnostic and management strategies." (Indiana University School of Dentistry, 2011)
