Course Overview:

Recent advancements in cone beam technology have resulted in much greater utilization of CBCT scanners as a diagnostic and treatment planning tool. This interactive course* will give participants a chance to explore CBCT software while reviewing different case studies. The course will include an overview of the basic principles of CBCT imaging and its various applications in dentistry. It will also include instruction how to use 3D volume data and data manipulation for anatomy and pathology. *Participants are required to bring a laptop to the course; as a CBCT viewer and a scan will be provided for analysis.

Course Objectives:

Understand fundamentals of 3D imaging, operational parameters, and radiation dosimetry Become familiar with a systematic approach to reviewing anatomical data in cone beam 3D scans Be able to manipulate scan data to visualize CBCT images and select appropriate methods of visualization Develop an interpretation strategy and enhance proficiency in utilization of 3-D volumetric imaging for the various applications in dentistry
