Advanced Imaging Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) is one of the hot topics in dental implantology today. This dynamic lecture will guide you through specific steps on how to maximize CBCT scans interpretation acquired for dental implant planning. We will discuss the importance of advance imaging during all phases of treatment including follow up visits in comparison with 2D images. We will address common questions related to radiation dose medico legal issues and imaging acquisition parameters. The lecture will highlight visualization of key anatomical structures such as the anterior maxilla/mandible and the maxillary sinus and we will unveil diagnostic/imaging pearls for current and future 3D imaging users.
Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) explain the importance of CBCT Imaging in Dental Implantology; 2) recognize important imaging findings associated with the maxillary sinus; 3) discuss responsibilities from a medicolegal prospective regarding CBCT imaging; and 4) describe the risk versus benefit of advanced imaging related to dose.
