Health care professionals, especially dentists need to study normal and abnormal anatomy of structures of the maxillofacial and temporomandibular joint region. Through this Atlas the health care professional can establish pathologic versus normal. Dr. Learreta has assembled a vast array of images of healthy and pathologic structures to guide the professional in their education. The technique for obtaining these images is clearly described. The background information relating to the science behind the imaging processes is excellently presented. A complete bibliography of citations is given for each section of the text with recommendation for further study. This atlas is an excellent addition to the literature available for clinical and academic study.
