4 Modules of utilization, with live PATIENTS using technology on a daily basis

3D imaging with cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) and other 3D modalities is the path to the future of dentistry for major improvements in radiographic diagnosis, treatment planning and digital dentistry. Ample research has shown that 2D imaging has reached the end of the road in terms of potential for improvements. CBCT technology has provided a low dose and relatively low cost means of providing 3D imaging of the maxillofacial region for dentistry and has the potential to become an essential component of a modern dental practice. This course is designed to familiarize each participant with the fundamentals of cone beam computed tomography technology and its many applications to dentistry.

 Learning Objectives

  • Understand CBCT principles, applications, radiation dosimetry, risks and the importance of applying selection criteria.
  • The interpretive process: Learn how to go through a volume and Identify abnormal findings and the importance of a systematic review.
  • Review 3D anatomy and the radiographic signs of disease

-What to Expect-

3 Tracks of utilization, with live demos lead by dentist using the technology on a daily basis
