Cone Beam Computed Tomography-Overview, Safety, and Applications: Friday, November 5, 2021 Online and live zoom programming
Advances in cone beam computed tomography imaging have created an ideal opportunity to simplify the diagnostic and treatment planning process, and to improve clinical outcomes. Dental treatment in the new millennium has progressed to a higher level because of new technology and systems. The challenge for any dentist is to understand the clinical problems and to determine which 3D imaging will provide the best diagnostic information for the desired treatment plan whether it be related to dental implant planning, review of pathology, treatment of TMJ, or diagnosis and problematic endodontically treated tooth. This course is designed to provide the practitioner with the latest in practical applications of digital CBCT radiology, with a special emphasis on what works and what systems are currently available. This course will primarily be a lecture with the opportunity for participants to review a cbct of their choice with the radiology laboratory hands-on provided. Small group discussions will provide additional interest and learning.
Course Topics and Objectives:
- Overview of CBCT applications, limitations, and doses
· Radiation safety, protection, and protocols to use
· Problem-solving & clinical applications with emphasis on interpretation
