A Review of Intraoral Radiology
AGD Subject Code(s): 165 CE credits: 2 Cost: $49.00
Faculty: Jeffery B. Price, DDS, MS
14945

 Dentists today receive information from more sources than ever. It is increasingly difficult to determine how to prioritize information when it comes time to make important practice decisions such as purchasing imaging systems for the modern dental office. This series of articles is intended to provide the dentist with some basic information regarding modern imaging systems. Specifically, part one of this series is geared towards a review of intraoral digital radiography. In addition to digital radiography, we will offer a basic overview of the principles of x-ray production; radiation dose and selection criteria; attenuation and image quality. We will also discuss how these aspects of radiology are meaningful to the prac­ticing dentist. After completing this course, the dentist and dental auxiliary should have a better understanding of how intraoral dental radiography systems function and be better equipped to make a decision regarding which intraoral system to purchase.

Best Practices in Intraoral Digital Radiography
AGD Subject Code(s): 731 CE credits: 2 Cost: $49.00
Faculty: Gail F. Williamson, RDH, BS

Detailed, accurate radiographs are a primary diagnostic tool as well as necessary for and during some treatments. Increasingly, digital radiographic imaging is being used with two types of available receptors. Anatomical variations and patient comfort must be considered when taking intraoral radiographs. In addition, recognizing common sources of errors is important to ensure that the clinician avoids them and knows how to correct them when they occur. Techniques, as well as devices and accessories, can be used that will enable accurate image acquisition and improve patient comfort.

Using Cone Beam CT in Clinical Practice
AGD Subject Code(s): 165 CE credits: 2 Cost: $49.00
Faculty: Jeffery B. Price, DDS, MS
15048

As the 20th century ended and the 21st century began, research groups were developing an imaging technology that would forever change dentists’ ability to image their patients. This technology is known as cone beam computed tomography (CBCT).1-6 In this course we will explore the technology and principles of CBCT and we will compare the similarities and differences between multi-detector CT (MDCT) used in medical imaging and CBCT. We will also discuss some of the basics of radiation dosimetry, as well as a few tools dentists can use to educate their patients in the relative risks of CBCT. We will also look at how CBCT can assist the practitioner with advanced treatment planning. Finally, we will review some of the ethical and medicolegal issues related to the use of CBCT imaging in dentistry.
