Systematic CBCT Interpretation

Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) machines are remarkable tools that provide highly-detailed three-dimensional images in less time and with less radiation than conventional imaging. CBCT is now commonly used in oral surgery and implant dentistry, increasing practice safety, accuracy, and efficiency. In this course, Prof. Vijay Parashar, DDS, MDSc of Midwestern University will discuss the advantages of CBCT vs. conventional intraoral/panoramic imaging, and the differences in diagnosis and treatment outcome. The instructor will also review radiographic interpretation of over 100 3D CBCT cases including imaging for TMJ, Dental Implant Planning, Root Fracture, Missed Canal, Benign Cyst, Malignancy, and Airway Evaluation.
