Open your eyes to the world of 3-dimensional radiology at this exciting hands-on course. Don’t let the latest developments in this field pass you or your patients by. Enhance your diagnostic and treatment planning abilities and improve patient education by learning how to manipulate and interpret 3-dimensional scans. Whether you own your own scanner or refer your patients to have scans done, this course will help you to provide the up-to-date treatments necessary for better patient care.

You will learn to use 3-D radiology to enhance patient treatment in these areas:

  • Endodontic diagnosis and treatment including identification of root fractures and canal anatomy
  • Analysis of pathologic lesions including information regarding their size, contents, extent of destruction of bone and teeth, and impingement on vital structures
  • Cardiac emergencies
  • Evaluation of impacted/unerupted teeth to precisely determine their position, potential to erupt, association with pathology, damage to adjacent teeth, and impingement on vital structures
  • Site evaluation for implants including bone height and width and potential damage to adjacent teeth and vital structures
  • Evaluation of paranasal sinuses to determine presence and extent of disease and position of roots of maxillary teeth

This course will be directed by an experienced teacher and board-certified Oral and Maxillofacial Radiologist. Each participant will be provided with their own computer in order to practice the skills necessary to manipulate their scans. We will provide a thorough review of pertinent regional head and neck anatomy so that you can fully understand the images that you will be viewing. You will then be taught to apply your refreshed anatomy knowledge to interpret these images. As we take you through different cases, you will learn how to examine and understand the 3-dimensional information in front of you.

You will receive a demonstration of TCDM’s radiographic equipment in action and gain a better understanding in how to let your patients know what to expect when they have scans done. Let this hands-on course put you in touch with 3-dimensional radiology and give you the confidence you need to use this technology in your practice.
