Would you like to develop more confidence and skill with Cone Beam CT scan interpretation?

You will benefit from hands-on training provided by the only two board certified oral and maxillofacial radiologists in active practice in Minnesota. The small class size allows for close interaction with instructors as they guide you through CT scan interpretation using actual cases. Patient cases will focus on: 1) impacted teeth, 2) third molars, 3) implants, 4) sinus anatomy and diseases, 5) TMJ, 6) fractures of teeth and bone, 7) diseases of bone, and 8) cysts and tumors. You will receive tips on cone beam software applications and diagnostic interpretation, and will also benefit from reviewing multiple clinical cases relevant to dental practice.

Benefits/Objectives

Using images acquired by a Cone Beam CT (CBCT) unit you will learn how to:

  • use CBCT software to explore areas of interest on a CT scan using multiple planes.
  • identify both normal and abnormal anatomy and pathology in teeth and bony structures of the head and neck.
  • incorporate CT data into your treatment plans.
Who Should Attend

Dentists and specialists who use CBCT scans to manage patient treatment and would like help reading the 3-D CT images.

Educational Methods/Materials

Illustrated lectures, discussion, case presentations, demonstration, interactive CT scan interpretation. You will have access to an individual computer loaded with CBCT software but are encouraged to bring your own PC laptop and a mouse with you to this program.
