The September 9th edition of the News Bites included a news item about a new interactive radiography manual, authored by Dr. Anthea Senior, Clinical Associate professor in the radiology department in the School of Dentistry at the University of Alberta.
The aim of the e-book is for students to have a quick reference guide to review before lab sessions and before they would take their first radiograph on patients.
We interviewed Dr. Senior about her motivation to write the book as well as the value that such a resource brings in helping students and dental professionals.
