Presented by: Dr. Spencer S. Park
Dental Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) became an essential tool of dentists during the last decade and expanded its clinical application from diagnosis, surgical treatment planning, prognosis assessment and even prosthetic planning and fabrication these days. However, CBCT technology has been frequently abused, over-used and under-used due to the inadequate understanding of basic radiology concept, poor choice of CBCT machine and the lack of the maintenance of CBCT machines. Furthermore, CBCT operational mistakes in clinic combined with inadequate training of CBCT viewer program may significantly compromise the outcome of digital diagnosis and treatment planning. During the presentation, the speaker will overview the basic concept and clinical application of CBCT for daily practice. Practical hands on workshop will be also held focusing on proper CBCT image taking and evaluation.
• Understand the basic concept of digital dental radiology
• Learn how to evaluate the specifications of different CBCT machines
• Learn how to prevent and decrease the operational and engineering error in clinic
• Learn the clinical application of various function of CBCT machine and image viewer program
• Learn how to calibrate and maintain the optimal condition of CBCT machine
