Radiology is among the fastest developing medical branches. Due to the rapid technological progress, today we use digital radiological methods supplemented by programs that enable dynamic, functional, and metabolic imaging and 3D view.
Both radiologists and other medical doctors in Croatia are still quite unacquainted with dental radiology. The analysis od dental X-rays is done mostly by dental medicine doctors alone. Dental radiology accounts for 25% of all radiological examinations in Croatia. Dozens of dental radiology textbooks have been published worldwide. The reason for writing this textbook, in collaboration with other teachers at the School od Dental Medicine was the wish and obligation of the Department of General and Dental radiology, School of Dental Medicine, University of Zagreb, to provide undergraduate and postgraduate students, dental medicine doctors, and other medical professionals an access to contemporary radiological knowledge.
