Plauto C. A. Watanabe, Emiko S. Arita, Angela J. Camargo and Marina G. Baladi

Abstract

Anatomical study of skull and face bones is complex and is important in understanding these structures to obtain correct radiographic projections, radiographic findings and interpretation of these images. Modern diagnostic image offers a wide range of methods and techniques, allowing us to study the function and craniofacial morphology in detail, regardless of projection. X-rays emerge as a diverging cone beam from the source and the image produced is composed of multiple superimposed structures.
