Diagnostic Imaging in Oral and Maxillofacial Diseases

Dear Colleagues,

It is with great pleasure that I propose this Topic entitled "Diagnostic Imaging in Oral and Maxillofacial Diseases". Significant technological improvements in medical equipment have made it possible to achieve great results in the diagnostic process in recent years. X-ray imaging, with increasingly smaller radiation doses, is being used more frequently and becoming widespread. In addition, radiation-free examinations are increasingly adapting to the maxillofacial area, allowing results to be achieved that are comparable to traditional diagnostics, but with less myological damage. Treatment plans are increasingly oriented toward completely digital 3D planning, from the diagnostic phase and the planning of treatment, to the clinical execution. Furthermore, the numerous tests that recently, with specific software, have allowed great evolutions in the diagnostic processes are leading to the discovery of a real "new anatomy", which warrants thorough study. I am hoping to receive articles regarding conventional imaging, 3D imaging and its technological developments, magnetic resonance, ultrasound, and other possible diagnostic exams, applied to every branch of dentistry. Original articles, case reports, and reviews in the field of imaging, which aim to enrich scientific knowledge and help not only clinicians but also researchers involved in the development of new dedicated software, diagnostic instruments, and technological improvements, are encouraged.
