With the adoption of cone beam CT imaging the productivity and efficiency of a dental practice increases along with career satisfaction. However with such technology the dental practitioner is required to manage significantly more anatomical information than with 2D imaging. A more comprehensive understanding of interpreting CBCT anatomy and pathoses will be a significant aid in the clinician’s ability to review a CBCT volume for significant findings. This advanced course is case based and designed to prepare the dental practitioner to systematically review a CBCT volume, recognize and categorize signs of abnormalities and how to manage the resultant findings and partner with an oral and maxillofacial radiologist. Learning will be accomplished through a computer lab based approach using CBCT cases from the UNC oral and maxillofacial radiology teaching files. Legal and ethical considerations will be covered as well as the role of the oral and maxillofacial radiologist in providing an advanced CBCT reading service to aid the clinician for those cases where abnormalities are recognized but not completely understood. This course requires some proficiency in computer use.
Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:
1. Develop a working knowledge of the maxilla and mandible and associated structures.
2. Systematically review a CBCT volume and recognize signs of pathological changes or abnormalities.
3. Categorize CBCT findings into disease categories.
4. Develop ways to partner with an oral and maxillofacial radiologist for radiology reporting and case management.
