This hands-on course is designed to prepare you to systematically review CBCT scans using 3D imaging software. We will focus on efficiently manipulating CBCT scans and using different views that can be used in every scope of practice. Participants are asked to bring along a PC laptop to the session to benefit from case(s) discussion and software manipulation. We will review endodontic cases, implant planning, and airway. We will also cover the basics of radiation exposure and how to explain it to patients easily.

Learning Objectives

• Manipulate scans efficiently using 3D imaging software
• Evaluate CBCT scans systematically
