Course Description
Dr. Archambault will discuss the basic operating principles of a typical CBCT machine and review the frequently used terminology. Radiation dose for different fields of view will be compared to traditional dental and medical imaging. The various position papers in the use of CBCT in the dental specialties will be reviewed. Dr. Archambault will also review radiographic anatomy as seen on CBCT images from the cranial base to the suprahyoid neck. The radiographic presentation of common odontogenic lesions including periapical and pericoronal pathology, and common non-odontogenic pathology will be discussed. Emphasis will be on the interpretation of CBCT images, description of radiographic features and the formulation of differential diagnoses.
