This is a comprehensive book focusing on the use of cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) within endodontics, providing evidence, guidance and rationale. The contributors comprise of a wide range of international experts within the field of endodontics and dental and maxillofacial radiology. This makes it an ideal resource for specialists in endodontology and dental and maxillofacial radiology, general dentists and undergraduates.
The book is divided into two sections. The first section consists of four chapters which provide an overview on the limitations of conventional radiography, radiation physics, and CBCT and its uses. This section of the book is ideal for those looking for a revision tool or to find out more on the essential aspects of radiology relating to CBCT. At the end of these chapters the reader is also provided with guidance on further reading that can be performed. The second section of the book consists of seven chapters and moves on to cover the specific applications of CBCT in endodontics, including dentoalveolar and root canal anatomy, endodontic diseases and endodontic therapies. These chapters all end with a referencing section providing the reader with evidences to the information covered, and act as a guide to further resources.
All of the chapters contain high quality images, illustrations and diagrams which are relevant and enable the reader to gain a deeper and more focused understanding of CBCT in endodontics. Each chapter also provides the reader with sufficient detail, offering a greater sense of guidance and comprehension of CBCT in endodontics.
I believe that this book is an invaluable resource for all levels of clinicians especially those within speciality training posts of endodontology and dental and maxillofacial radiology. It also serves as a good resource for undergraduates. I would strongly advise those seeking a deeper understanding of CBCT in endodontics to read this book as it will no doubt greatly increase their understanding and appreciation of this area of dentistry.
