Cone-Beam Computed Technology (CBCT) is revolutionizing our ability to optimally diagnosis and treat patients. This course will provide an overview of Cone-Beam Computed Tomography technology so that you can confidently decide when and how to leverage the benefits of CBCT to meet the individual needs of your practice. The first day will include indications for taking a CBCT, brief review of the basics of the technology, the advantages and limitations of CBCT relative to conventional imaging and review of the basics of systematic interpretation. Dr. Parrone will discuss when and how to involve an oral and maxillofacial radiologist, and, for those interested in purchasing a CBCT, how to select the best machine for your practice. Finally, there will be a brief hands-on overview of the CBCT viewing software and participants will be given a CBCT volume to explore on their own as an assignment.
The second day of the program will be entirely hands-on. Clinicians will have an opportunity to navigate multiple cases to become acquainted with cross-sectional head and neck anatomy, differentiate normal anatomy from abnormal pathosis and practice writing a radiology report. After independent navigation of each case, the findings will be reviewed as a group.
