Course I – Reservation Information

Please join us in Washington, DC for our 2-Day Course on the “Use of CBCT in Endodontics, Course I.” This evidence-based program demonstrates the advantages of CBCT imaging in light of recent research demonstrating a significant increase in lesion visualization when compared with periapical radiographs.

  • 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
  • Applies to all limited field of view CBCT scanners and features Martin D. Levin, DMD, Barry Pass, DDS, PhD and Thomas Winkler, MD.
  • Course II – Reservation Information

    This advanced 2-Day CBCT Course in Washington, DC, “Use of CBCT in Endodontics, Course II,” will focus on systematic interpretation of CBCT images, anatomy shown in limited field of view scans and a review of 20 CBCT scans.

  • Detailed examination of systematic interpretation methods
  • Radiographic anatomy using combination of anatomic figures, cadaveric specimen photographs and CBCT scans
  • Live case-based demonstrations
  • Selected cases with endodontic pathoses to illustrate variations from normal anatomy
  • Incidental findings and artifacts
  • Characteristics of apical periodontitis, fractures, trauma, presurgical, resorptive lesions and outcomes
  • Review of 20 CBCT scans
  • Applies to all limited field of view CBCT scanners and features Martin D. Levin, DMD, and oral and maxillofacial radiologists Barry Pass, DDS, PhD and Jeffery Price, DDS, MS
  • CBCT Interview on “Doc Talk”

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

    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.
