Radiology for Dental Auxiliaries is a two part CE course consisting of an online didactic portion and a hands-on section. Participants must complete the online training prior to attending the hands-on portion. The online will cover the following sections:
- Radiographic techniques
- Bisecting angle and paralleling techniques
- Prevention and correction of radiographic errors
- Processing errors
- Radiation safety issues
At the end of each section an online assessment will be given to evaluate participant’s knowledge.
In the hands-on portion while working with a manikin, participants will practice making a full mouth radiograph series using digital sensors and phosphor plates*. The radiographic images will be evaluated for positioning techniques and errors.
*As the school is now completely digital, auxiliaries who use film will work with phosphor plates that look and feel like film. Phosphor plates require digital “processing” prior to visualization of the final image. Errors which may occur in traditional wet processing will be covered in the online didactic portion.
