Background: Maxillofacial traumas (MFTs) are gradually becoming common reason for presenting at emergency room. Nowadays, these traumas formed a social disease because of an increasing frequency and magnitude of traffic accidents, as well as the growing incidents of violence in urban. In initial phase of trauma, an efficient imaging assessment of patients with MFT is crucial. Once patient compensation has been achieved, to detect fractures and/or soft tissue damage requires immediate therapy and preoperative planning with required imaging techniques for a proper assessment. Aim: The study aims to highlight perspectives on current imaging modalities used for maxillofacial trauma and to provide an insight into the influence, both technologic and external, on future developments and applications. Conclusion: Correct imaging acquisition, systematic analysis and interpretation according to the anatomic and surgical relevant structures in the maxillofacial regions are essential for an accurate, reproducible, and comprehensive diagnosis in maxillofacial trauma.
