Dental imaging and radiology is a compulsory discipline in any dental curriculum. We intend with this e-book to include the student of this area, professionals of dentistry and medicine, in a way more digestible to such a generation "Y", besides, of course, to make a more visual reading of the content, with a large amount of images for these professionals. Not by chance, it is an academic didactic material of dental imaging and radiology. Radiography is still the main diagnostic tool for dentistry and often for medicine. Thus, all the specialties and the general practitioner make routine use of this examination, aiming to collect, observe and interpret data for the construction of the diagnosis. We will address the subject at the basic / intermediate level, which will certainly include the specialty, professionals and also the graduate. This academic didactic material will be covered in basic (more technical) radiology and also in diagnostic radiology (radiographic interpretation). It is our proposal to primarily target this content to the internationally recommended profile, that is, to contribute to the training of health professionals, with a generalist, humanistic, critical and reflexive education, to act at all levels of health care, based on rigor Technical and scientific, always emphasizing that in teaching, theory is inseparable from practice.
