CBCT Interpretation Workshop

Saturday, September 20, 2022

8:00 am – 5:00 pm

Credits: 8.0


This one-day workshop—specifically designed for dentists—is an excellent opportunity to get unbiased, hands-on training on CBCT software. It will help you evaluate how these tools can advance your clinical and diagnostic skills and is a cannot-miss course for dental offices that are considering a major purchase or lease agreement.

Course Description:

CBCT imaging has transformed the practice of dentistry. This course will address recent advances in CBCT imaging and how to incorporate these into the dental practice for optimal patient care. Participants will be able to get a better understanding of CBCT anatomical deviations and incidental findings; and will also gain hands-on experience using CBCT software while being guided through proper CBCT interpretation using clinical cases.  A case-based approach will be used to methodically review radiographic findings. The presentation will include 3-D illustrated case presentations, discussions, and interactive CBCT interpretations.

Specific Objectives:

  • Familiar with current guidelines on CBCT applications and optimal imaging protocols and dose for various dental indications
  • Understand the benefits and risks of CBCT imaging
  • Systematically review and interpret a CBCT scan in multi-planar sections.
  • Identify normal anatomical structures and incidental finding
  • Be able to review CBCT volume for pathology
  • Become familiar with legal and ethical considerations relevant to CBCT interpretation
