From Pixels to Practice: Enhancing Diagnostic Skills with CBCT Interpretation 

Speaker: Reyhaneh Alimohammadi, DDS, MS, Diplomate ABOMR 

Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is being extensively used by dentists and specialists. Although the advantages of using this modality are enormous, with information comes responsibility. Most dental clinicians are not maxillofacial radiologists and are generally not familiar with interpretation of anatomy and pathosis in the head-and-neck area outside their immediate area of interest. 

Dentists are expected to have basic skills in interpreting the radiologic images that they make in their dental practices. This ability requires the mastery of two identifiable and non-separable components of visual diagnosis: perception, the ability to recognize abnormal patterns in the image, and cognition, the ability to interpret these abnormal patterns to arrive at an interpretation or diagnosis. 

Course Objectives:

- Guidelines and evidence-based use of CBCT: 
- Anatomy: Oral cavity (teeth, maxilla, mandible), Sinonasal and TMJs overview 
- Incidental findings: Review common incidental findings and the recommendations for treatment, referral, and follow up. 

 

After completing this course, the clinicians have the general knowledge of anatomy and can generate a radiology report.
