Updates in 3D imaging in general dental practice

Learn how to manipulate and interpret CBCT scans
This course demonstrates how high-resolution 3D imaging can positively impact all phases of treatment and how it can be combined with upcoming technologies such as 3D printing and CAD/CAM technologies.

Course overview

CBCT imaging is one of the most important diagnostic tools during the initial treatment planning and management of various types of dental procedures. 

This course will demonstrate how high resolution 3D imaging can positively impact all phases of treatment and how it can be combined with upcoming technologies such as 3D printing and CAD/CAM technologies. 

This dynamic lecture will guide you through specific steps on how to manipulate and interpret CBCT scans. We will discuss the importance of understanding 3D visualisation of key anatomical structures such as the maxillary sinus and we will unveil diagnostic pearls for current and future 3D imaging users. 

Learning objectives and outcomes

  • Learn the importance of high resolution scans in your daily practice
  • Understand the importance of systematic imaging interpretation
  • How to navigate 3D volumes and avoid parallax error
  • How to optimise imaging for 3D printing
