This all-day course will train you how to read CBCT volumes as an endodontist. Endodontic manipulation of CBCT volumes involves a more sophisticated use of the viewing software than is typically used in implant dentistry or in oral surgery.
Attendees will receive instruction in the CBCT user interface for the Kodak 9000 and Morita Veraviewepocs CBCT units.
Using a Case History approach as well as material from the Pacific Endodontic Research Foundation Cadaver Study, all attendees will learn a disciplined protocol for reviewing the scans, presenting them to patients and referral doctors, and integrating them into the database. An in-depth discussion of cone beam artifacts will be followed by correlation with the actual histology from the PERF study.
All attendees will learn a standardized method for reviewing the scans contemporaneously with the patient and how to place appropriate screen shots in the patient record for powerful referral reports. Following the review of CBCT artifacts and histological analysis, selected Case Reviews of actual patients will be presented by TDO’ers so the attendee will gain experience in viewing a wide variety of cases by different clinicians.
