Dental Radiology: Recent Developments and Core Knowledge
Exciting developments in radiology and radiography have taken place in the last 10 years, affecting the practice of dental radiology, and providing dentists with an evolving and increasingly valuable diagnostic tool. Core elements, however, remain and most techniques continue to involve the use of ionizing radiation.
This lecture will review some of the recent changes in imaging of the dental and maxillofacial region, and also examine current concepts of radiation safety.
- To understand the nature and scale of risk from use of radiation in diagnostic imaging
- To examine techniques for improving radiography and radiation protection
- To review principles of radiographic interpretation, illustrated by many cases and examples of common and important radiological findings
-To highlight pitfalls in radiological interpretation in the maxillofacial region
