Course Description:

Incidental findings are present in up to 93% of CBCT scans within the dental setting. When unrecognized or undiagnosed, these findings can cause delays in treatment, prompt unnecessary procedures, increase cost for both the patient and the clinician, and significantly impact patient health and treatment outcomes. Clinicians must know what can appear on their CBCT scans and how to handle it. This course consists of a pictorial review of common findings within the dentoalveolar region. It will examine which findings are relevant to your patients, what they mean to you, and when you should refer to a specialist or physician for further treatment and evaluation.

Learning Objectives:

  • Recognize common findings in the mandible, maxilla, sinuses, and soft tissues.
  • Appreciate the clinical relevance of radiographic findings on CBCT images.
  • Learn to identify changes that suggest pathological processes.
  • Understand when it is necessary to refer patients for further treatment and radiographic evaluation.
