Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) has become the standard of reference in dental imaging. The distribution of CBCT devices is increasingly wide, and the number of required examinations is constantly growing. In this setting, it is now essential that medical and technical staff receive specific training in the use of CBCT and that technical guidelines for CBCT examinations are established. This clearly structured book on CBCT will be an ideal aid in daily clinical practice. It clearly explains basic CBCT anatomy, examination technique, and the use of 3D reformatting software. A wide range of cases are presented, covering the most frequent and relevant conditions and pathologies, including dental anomalies, inflammatory and degenerative disease, tumors, and implants.

This book describes the fundamentals of three-dimensional (3D) printing, addresses the practical aspects of establishing a 3D printing service in a medical facility, and explains the enormous potential value of rendering images as 3D printed models capable of providing tactile feedback and tangible information on both anatomic and pathologic states. Individual chapters also focus on selected areas of applications for 3D printing, including musculoskeletal, craniomaxillofacial, cardiovascular, and neurosurgery applications. Challenges and opportunities related to training, materials and equipment, and guidelines are addressed, and the overall costs of a 3D printing lab and the balancing of these costs against clinical benefits are discussed. Radiologists, surgeons, and other physicians will find this book to be a rich source of information on the practicalities and expanding medical applications of 3D printing.

This book is designed to serve as an up-to-date reference on the use of cone-beam computed tomography for the purpose of 3D imaging of the craniofacial complex. The focus is in particular on the ways in which craniofacial 3D imaging changes how we think about conventional diagnosis and treatment planning and on its clinical applications within orthodontics and oral and maxillofacial surgery. Emphasis is placed on the value of 3D imaging in visualizing the limits of the alveolar bone, the airways, and the temporomandibular joints and the consequences for treatment planning and execution. The book will equip readers with the knowledge required in order to apply and interpret 3D imaging to the benefit of patients. All of the authors have been carefully selected on the basis of their expertise in the field. In describing current thinking on the merits of 3D craniofacial imaging, they draw both on the available scientific literature and on their own translational research findings.

This handbook is designed to enable radiation oncologists to treat patients appropriately and confidently by means of particle therapy. The orientation and purpose are entirely practical, in that the focus is on the physics essentials of delivery and treatment planning , illustration of the clinical target volume (CTV) and associated treatment planning for each major malignancy when using particle therapy, proton therapy in particular. Disease-specific chapters provide guidelines and concise knowledge on CTV selection and delineation and identify aspects that require the exercise of caution during treatment planning. The treatment planning techniques unique to proton therapy for each disease site are clearly described, covering beam orientation, matching/patching field techniques, robustness planning, robustness plan evaluation, etc. The published data on the use of particle therapy for a given disease site are also concisely reported. In addition to fully meeting the needs of radiation oncologists, this "know why" and “know how” guide to particle therapy will be valuable for medical physicists, dosimetrists, and radiation therapists.

Since its introduction to dentistry, cone beam computedtomography (CBCT) has undergone a rapid evolution and considerableintegration into orthodontics. However, despite the increasingpopularity of CBCT and progress in applying it to clinicalorthodontics, the profession has lacked a cohesive, comprehensiveand objective reference that provides clinicians with thebackground needed to utilize this technology optimally for treatingtheir patients. Cone Beam Computed Tomography inOrthodontics provides timely, impartial, and state-of-the-artinformation on the indications and protocols for CBCT imaging inorthodontics, clinical insights gained from these images, andinnovations driven by these insights. As such, it is the mostcurrent and authoritative textbook on CBCT in orthodontics.Additionally, two DVDs include more than 15 hours of videopresentations on related subjects from the 39th Annual MoyersSymposium and 38th Annual International Conference on CraniofacialResearch. Cone Beam Computed Tomography in Orthodontics is organizedto progress sequentially through specific topics so as to build theknowledgebase logically in this important and rapidly evolvingfield. Part I provides the foundational information on CBCTtechnology, including radiation exposure and risks, and futureevolutions in computed tomography. Part II presents the Principlesand Protocols for CBCT Imaging in Orthodontics, focusing ondeveloping evidence-based criteria for CBCT imaging, themedico-legal implications of CBCT to the professional and theprotocols and integration of this technology in orthodonticpractice. Part III provides critical information on CBCT-basedDiagnosis and Treatment Planning that includes how to interpretCBCT scans, identify incidental pathologies and the possible otheruses of this technology. Part IV covers practical aspects ofCBCT’s Clinical Applications and Treatment Outcomes thatencompasses a range of topics, including root morphology andposition, treatment of impacted teeth, virtual surgical treatmentplanning and outcomes, and more.
