About this book


The book provides a comprehensive description of the fundamental operational principles, technical details of acquiring and specific clinical applications of dental and maxillofacial cone beam computed tomography (CBCT). It covers all clinical considerations necessary for optimal performance in a dental setting. In addition overall and region specific correlative imaging anatomy of the maxillofacial region is described in detail with emphasis on relevant disease. Finally imaging interpretation of CBCT images is presented related to specific clinical applications. This book is the definitive resource for all who refer, perform, interpret or use dental and maxillofacial CBCT including dental clinicians and specialists, radiographers, ENT physicians, head and neck, and oral and maxillofacial radiologists.

Dr. Scarfe has published extensively on cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) including recent consensus statements on general and specific use guidelines and discipline specific applications of CBCT. He co-authored chapters on CBCT in the most recent edition of the standard dental undergraduate textbook used in the United States, Oral Radiology: Principles and Interpretation by White and Pharoah. He presents internationally as well as nationally and is active in research on the clinical applications of CBCT imaging.

Dr. Angelopoulos is a graduate of the Aristotle University, School of Dentistry, Thessaloniki, Greece. His postdoctoral training includes a 2-year internship in Oral Surgery (Aristotle University) and a 1-year GPR program (Truman Medical Center, Kansas City). In addition, he has completed a 3-year Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology resi¬dency program at the University of Missouri- Kansas City, School of Dentistry, and he was awarded the M.S. degree in Oral Biology. He is a diplomate of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology and a fellow of the International College of Oral Implantologists. He has held university appoint¬ments at the University of Missouri-Kansas City, School of Dentistry (assis¬tant professor 08/02–02/07) and at Columbia University, College of Dental Medicine (associate professor and director of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology 03/07–12/10). Currently, he is an associate professor at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece, and an adjunct professor of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology at Columbia University.
