Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Maxillofacial trauma is very common worldwide, with a different prevalence in different countries. It often represents urgencies or emergencies, and imaging is crucial for diagnosis, surgical planning, and postoperative evaluation. Over the years, imaging techniques have evolved from simple radiographs such as orthopantomography to 3D CT reconstructions, up to intraoperative navigation and the design of custom-made plates. The main purpose of this Special Issue is to share the technological development of imaging to allow a better management of trauma.
