Course Description:

With the adoption of cone beam CT technology, the dental practitioner is required to manage significantly more anatomical information and potentially more knowledge of maxillofacial pathoses than with 2D imaging. A more comprehensive understanding of how to recognize pathoses in CBCT volumes is required to recognize and describe abnormalities. A very significant part of this task is to be able to find and differentiate benign from malignant lesions. This course is designed to prepare the dental practitioner to systematically review a CBCT volume, recognize and categorize signs of abnormalities and how to tell the difference between benign and malignant lesions.

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:

  1. Know the five principles of radiologic interpretation
  2. Be familiar with the language and terminology for radiographic description
  3. List the seven radiographic signs for differentiating benign lesions from malignant lesions
  4. Be able to differentiate benign from malignant lesions
