PRE-CONGRESS COURSE: THE LEAP FROM PANORAMIC RADIOLOGY TO CBCT: What are we looking? What are we gaining?
This course will discuss the progression of orthodontic diagnostic imaging from digital panoramic radiography to cone beam computed tomography (CBCT). It will address the daily challenges of the orthodontist to reach a diagnosis through the various limitations of traditional dental imaging and the gains of CBCT. No other field of dentistry had a need for a 3-dimensional vision as Orthodontics.
In this course, the participants will learn:
-Basic principles of panoramic radiography and the features of an accurate panoramic image
-The anatomy of the maxillofacial region with panoramic radiography
-Limitations of panoramic radiography
-CBCT applications in the ORTHO practice
-The diagnostic challenges of the impacted tooth
-Proper utilization of the 3D tools available in different software programs
-CBCT image interpretation
The course will be followed by a live demonstration of different software functions and/or “hands on” participation based on attendance.
