The purpose of the Radiographic Techniques for the Pediatric Patient course is to provide information on the guidelines for radiographic exposure with emphasis on the reduction of ionizing radiation and innovative techniques that are helpful in conducting radiographic examinations for the pediatric patient. Furthermore, this topic will provide suggestions for communicating with patients and parents about radiation safety and the importance of radiographs in diagnosis and treatment planning.
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.
