CBCT is Not New Anymore – So What’s New about It?
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.
- Discriminate among the differences of various CBCT scanning units.
- Develop familiarity with various software viewing modules.
- 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.
