3-Dimensional X-ray Training

3-Dimensional X-ray training with Sirona in Scottsdale Arizona on June 8-9 2015.  This was an excellent course for additional training on 3-D x-ray systems.  It was a great refresher on patient exposure and how to limit radiation received by the patient.  3-dimensional x-rays, also known as a CT scan, allows the dentist to see your facial structures with more accuracy and clarity, as seen in the picture below.  When talking with an implant patient about the necessity of a CT scan I like to use the analogy, “If I were to take a test, and the test was on your mouth, wouldn’t you want me to know all the answers”?  The course also went over all the different pathology (diseases) that can be seen in a CT scan reinforcing my knowledge of oral anatomy and oral pathology.
