Interpreting Cone Beam CT Images: An Interactive Workshop

Friday, February 9, 2018

Boost your interpretation skills with this hands-on training provided by two board certified oral and maxillofacial radiologists. The small class size allows for close interaction with instructors as they guide you through CT scan interpretation using actual cases.

Case studies will focus on:

  • Impacted teeth
  • Third molars
  • Implants
  • Sinus anatomy and diseases
  • TMJ
  • Fractures of teeth and bone
  • Diseases of bone  
  • 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. 

Learn How To

Using images acquired by a Cone Beam CT (CBCT) unit:

  • Implement 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

Training Methods

Illustrated lectures, discussion, case presentations, demonstration, interactive CT scan interpretation
