The online dental radiology course will focus on Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) which is a commonly used technology 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.

Course objectives

  • 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.

Who should take this course

The course is aimed at dentists, stomatologists, maxillofacial surgeons, radiologists.
