For general dentists and dental specialists alike, the emerging world of three-dimensional (3D) imaging can be an overwhelming, yet exciting venture. Although incorporating this technology into the dental practice can prove to be a challenge, it can reward the practitioner with the advantages of visualizing regions of interest without distortion or superimposed anatomical structures.

This three-day, certification course in cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) taught by University of Manitoba experts from oral and maxillofacial radiology, and radiation protection and imaging physics, is the only CBCT certification program taught within the province.

The program will include a didactic portion and a hands-on clinical portion that utilizes the CBCT in the Ross McIntyre Digital Imaging Centre at the University of Manitoba, College of Dentistry. The didactic component will span Friday and Saturday, in both the morning and afternoon sessions, and will thoroughly explore the principles of CBCT imaging technology. This broad scope of topics will educate general practitioners and dental specialist in the realm of oral radiology and the use of the CBCT in their practice, as well as emphasize the responsibilities of the clinician inherent in utilizing this imaging modality. The Sunday morning session will encompass an interpretation seminar with discussion of patient cases. In the afternoon, the attendees will be split into two separate groups that will each gain experience exposing a CBCT image, as well as a mini-seminar on the manipulation of the images in the third-party 3D software.
