This booklet bridges the distance among conventional maxillofacial imaging and complex clinical imaging. we've utilized CT and MRI to quite a few maxillofacial instances and those are illustrated with fine quality pictures and a number of planes. A finished bankruptcy on imaging anatomy is additionally incorporated.
