CBCT Course for Referrers – Level Two
On Friday 17 January 2019, Dr Steve Colley, Consultant Radiologist and Dr Veronique Sauret-Jackson, Consultant Medical Physicist, will be delivering the CBCT Course for Referrers Level Two.
CBCT is now becoming commonplace in General Dental Practice. As CBCT technology has evolved we can now use CBCT in a wider range of areas in dentistry, meaning its use has dramatically increased with more dentists having direct access and the ability to use CBCT. With this in mind, the HPA-CRCE- 010 and the latest EADMFR guidelines suggest General Dentists who are involved with CBCT need to fulfil their responsibilities by completing a certain level of education. “Two levels of training are recognized. Level 1 is intended to train dentists who prescribe CBCT imaging, such that they may request appropriately and understand the resultant reported images. Level 2 is intended to train to a more advanced level and covers the understanding and skills needed to justify, carry out and interpret a CBCT examination”
As our referrers know, we value working very close to them. Hence putting together the training
that follows very tightly the HPA-CRCE-010 and the EADMFR position paper on the basic training that our referrers require and also echoes the GDC emphasis on the importance of continuing education via verified CPD.
Cavendish Imaging referrers, and all dentists who do not have their own scanning equipment and refer out their patients for CBCT are “Prescribers” and “Prescribers who report”. For them, the EADMFR recommends the content of adequate general training.
Cavendish Imaging have modified the course content so it is applicable to those who refer to a
CBCT imaging site and do not have their own CBCT scanner.
This Course links to Enhanced CPD Development Outcomes C and D. The CPD provided is verified and the course is subject to our Quality Assurance Processes. For more information on Enhanced CPD please contact 0121 456 0893.
