The upcoming CBCT course will be conducted entirely online via an eClassroom in self-study format. There will be no in-person or scheduled "live" webinar attendance required.
Cone Beam CT (CBCT) is one of the fastest growing technologies in dentistry, with approximately 100% growth per year since 2005. The applications of this technology span every dental discipline and specific functions in implant planning, TMJ, airway analysis and pathology. While there are courses on CBCT for dentists, there are very few available for dental assistants and hygienists. Yet, most offices rely upon the staff to be involved with the various aspects with the various aspects of CBCT imaging of patients. This program is designed to fulfill a need for continuing education on the topic of CBCT imaging and includes practical information for the utilization of CBCT. Key topics include the fundamental technology behind CBCT, operational parameters, patient management and positioning strategies, data management and reformatting radiation hygiene and dosimetry.
The program includes a 2 hour workshop for hands on training on 3-D visualization. Participants will be provided 3-D viewing software and practice cases to “walk through” with guidance from the presenter. Participants will be required to carry a fully charged laptop for this course (preferably no MACs, your PC will need a graphics card with a minimum of 256 Mb of RAM). Course material will be emailed a few weeks prior to course date.
