Update in Oral Radiology
Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) is a technology commonly used now in imaging centres and dental practices. It is essential to have an in-depth understanding of the indications for this technology, such as learning to diagnose in three dimensions and to revisit radiological anatomy and pathology from the tomographic perspective.
- Provide a review of anatomy and oral pathology and familiarise the student with interpreting tomographic images, for planning surgeries as well as diagnosing the most common pathologies.
- Highlight the radiographic signs indicating benign and malignant disease.
- Teach student to recognise the most common lesions, their radiographic characteristics and their possible differential diagnoses.
Skills to be acquired by students
- Detect pathology on CBCT scans that is not visible in conventional radiology.
- Differentiate the normal from the pathological, therapeutic and iatrogenic.
- Protocolise radiological studies to obtain the most information.
