Course I -Reservation Information

Please join us for our 2-Day Course on the “Use of CBCT in Endodontics” using Zoom. This evidence-based program, updated with the most current information, has been presented 50 times over the past 10 years. This workshop applies to all limited field of view CBCT scanners. Martin D. Levin, DMD, Barry Pass, DDS, PhD, Thomas P. Winkler, MD and Eric J. Ploumis, DMD, JD.

  • Systematic interpretation of CBCT scans
  • Reporting on cross-sectional images, methods, and conventions
  • Advantages of CBCT, common interpretation errors and artifacts
  • Biologic effects of radiation dose relevant to endodontic CBCT assessments. Absorbed, equivalent and effective dose and their units
  • Comparative doses for 2D and 3D
  • Endodontic application of CBCT in endodontics
  • Radiologic anatomy of the CBCT image, normal and pathologic findings
  • Report writing
  • Principles of CBCT image production
  • Emerging technology, emerging risk: legal considerations regarding the assessment of radiographic images
  • Applies to all limited field of view CBCT scanners and features Martin D. Levin, DMD, Barry Pass, DDS, PhD, Thomas Winkler, MD and Eric J. Ploumis, DMD, JD

Course II – Reservation Information

New advanced course using Zoom, will highlight systematic interpretation and documentation of CBCT images, anatomy shown in limited field of view scans and outcomes assessment. This workshop applies to all limed field of view CBCT scanners. Martin D. Levin, DMD, Barry Pass, DDS, PhD and Jeffery B. Price, DDS, MS.

  • Detailed examination of systematic interpretation methods
  • Live case-based demonstrations, review of 20 CBCT scans
  • Radiographic anatomy using combination of anatomic figures, cadaveric specimen photographs and CBCT scans
  • Selected cases with endodontic pathoses to illustrate variations from normal anatomy
  • Incidental findings and artifacts
  • Registering two scans for outcomes evaluation
  • Characteristics of apical periodontitis, fractures, trauma, presurgical, resorptive lesions

Dr. Levin joined Lisa Moler, Publisher and CEO of Endodontic Practice, to discuss the use of CBCT in endodontics.

Use of CBCT in Endodontics

This CBCT 3D semi-transparent isosurface reformation shows the maxilla of a 22 yo male patient who fell while biking. A segmented 3D image and crossectional reformations show the transverse radicular fractures in the maxillary right and left lateral and central incisors.

Endodontic therapy depends on diagnostic radiographs and image-guided treatment. Periapical and panoramic radiography have been augmented by the recent introduction of limited field of view, high-resolution Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT), allowing three-dimensional assessment of odontogenic and and non-odontogenic lesions, root canal morphology, revision treatment, root and alveolar fractures, resorptive lesions and anatomy prior to surgery.

Please join us for one of our two intensive two-day seminars:

“Use of CBCT in Endodontics, Course I” highlights a step-wise approach to image interpretation and documentation, common interpretation errors and endodontic applications of CBCT. Additional material on artifacts, panoramic imaging, the maxillary sinuses, workflow, the consent process, liability considerations and marketing will be presented.

“Use of CBCT in Endodontics, Course II” will review 20 CBCT scans to emphasize our systematic assessment protocol for viewing CBCT scans. Additional in-depth discussions of anatomy, incidental findings and artifacts will be conducted. Course I is a prerequisite.
