The primary objective of this course is to increase your general knowledge of radiographic interpretations by examining case studies. Radiographic interpretation is an important part of diagnoses. This course features case studies with radiographic images to assist dental professionals in diagnoses of certain conditions of the oral cavity.

A PDF is available for each module that may serve as a convenient resource.
