Kenneth Abramovitch, DDS, MS
Time: 8:00 am - 11:30 am Code: T07 Cost: $35/$50 after Sept. 29
CE Credits:  3 Hour Lecture  |  Subject:  CBCT/Radiology |  Recommended for: All Attendees

The technology and how it differs from conventional intraoral and panoramic imaging, including a discussion of radiation risk and the current marketplace of commercially available CBCT scanners.

CBCT software applications: Review of basic 3D hard tissue anatomy multiplanar imaging, panoramic reconstructions, nerve tracing, implant planning, and volume rendering (uses for airway evaluations and paranasal sinus volume)

Diagnostic Evaluations with CBCT:  Demonstration of hard tissue pathology with the benefit of CBCT imaging.  Periapical Pathology – cysts and sequela of chronic cysts, granulomas, periapical osteopetrosis, idiopathic osteosclerosis, periapical cemento-osseous dysplasia and variants, resorptive defects.

Cysts and Tumors (as time permits): dentigerous cyst, odontogenic keratocyst, ameloblastoma, ossifying fibroma, MRONJ, and alveolar malignancies.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Discriminate among the differences of various CBCT scanning units.
  2. Develop familiarity with various software viewing modules.
  3. Determine strategies to evaluate dento-alveolar and other diseases affecting the alveolar and basal bone of the maxilla and mandible.
  4. Evaluate artifact from root fracture.
  5. Recognize the range of improvement of disease recognition with advanced imaging.
