What the Heck Was That? Interpreting CBCT Scans
Clinicians are frequently faced with diagnostic challenges, and conebeam CT (CBCT) can be a useful assessment tool. However, viewing anatomy that has been imaged in 3D is typically not a familiar process for the clinician.
Clinicians are frequently faced with diagnostic challenges, and conebeam CT (CBCT) can be a useful assessment tool. However, viewing anatomy that has been imaged in 3D is typically not a familiar process for the clinician. This presentation will assist the dentist in developing a straight-forward approach to interpreting scans by offering a review of oral and maxiollofacial anatomy. It will also demonstrate the use of selected tools, including i-CATVision™, to navigate through a CBCT 3D volume, and how to use these tools to indentify normal maxillofacial anatomic structures, as well as anatomic variations and pathosis. Also discussed, will be the documentation of cases and the use of radiology services for interpretation.
- Perform a systematic review of a CBCT scan
- Identify Normal Anatomy
- Design a case specific Imaging Protocol
- Develop an interpretation strategy
