ABOUT THE COURSE
This presentation will include a brief history of the machine hardware development of the current CBCT technology. It will simplify the theory of image acquisition and then expand on the multiple diagnostic utilities of CBCT imaging, including panoramic modes, arch sectioning, multiplanar sectioning and high-resolution scanning. There will also be a brief discussion on the biologic risks associated with X radiation exposure from CBCT imaging.
This session will enable participants to:
- Know the differences between various CBCT scanning units.
- Develop familiarity with various software viewing modes.
- Determine strategies to evaluate dento-alveolar and other diseases affecting the alveolar and basal bone of the maxilla and mandible.
- Evaluate artifact from root fracture.
- Recognize the range of improvement of disease recognition with advanced imaging.
