This course will review Cone-Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) and its applications in clinical dentistry. The technology and how it differs from other types of dental imaging, keys for optimal imaging based on the desired outcomes, radiation dose to patients, interpretation, and medico-legal considerations will be discussed.
The information in this 12-module syllabus is intended (1) to meet elements of initial educational/training requirements for Dental Students, Dental Hygiene Students, and Dental Assistant Students related to dental radiography; (2) to provide a framework for an in-service training program in oral healthcare settings to meet annual educational/training requirements as mandated by federal, state, local and professional organizations; and (3) to serve as a resource for oral healthcare personnel wishing to review evidence-based information on specific topics related to dental radiography. A PDF is available for each module that may serve as a convenient resource.
