Accurate radiographs are essential to make a correct diagnosis, deliver positive treatment outcomes, assess long-term results and provide medico-legal protection.
This course will look at the opportunities and challenges of 2D and 3D imaging. Conventional 2D images remain the mainstay of dental treatment with film, digital sensors or phosphor plate options. Digital systems used correctly reduce radiation exposure and the need for manual processing of traditional film. This course will use two holders that operate across all 2D platforms and give you the results you need and want, including one of the most difficult procedures, an accurate endodontic image with rubber dam in place. The objective of this part of the course is to demonstrate simple clinical techniques to achieve this aim for all teeth and under all clinical situations.

Topics include

• What is the definition of a high-quality 2D image?
• 2D positioning techniques for all teeth
• Conventional film versus digital; pros and cons
• Advances in diagnosis and treatment planning with cutting-edge technologies
• 3D imaging pros and cons
• Interpretation of CBCT images: how to use generic imaging software to maximum advantage
• Which 3D imaging system suits my surgery?
