Voxel navigation -  The importance of dynamic CBCT interpretation in the endodontic practice.

 Lectures objectives:

Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) is one of the most discussed topics in Endodontics today. This course is designed to teach and update participants on how to systematically review CBCT data to maximize imaging diagnosis in the Endodontic practice.  This presentation will introduce the audience to key basic and advanced interpretation concepts related to 3D anatomy/pathology.  Interactive clinical cases will cover evidence-based practice techniques, focusing on advanced 3D navigation of small high resolution CBCT volumes.

  • Justify the use of 3D imaging in Endodontic
  • Be familiar with current and future technical advances in 3D imaging
  • Use contemporary 3D imaging navigation techniques to minimize interpretation time and maximize diagnosis
  • Recognize advanced 3D anatomy/pathology of the paranasal sinuses         
  • Develop differential diagnosis for lesions associated with endodontic scans
