Conversations with Dr. Bruno the “Conebeam Guy” – Ep. 05

Guest: Bruno Azevedo, D.D.S, M.S.

The benefits of CBCT scans include revealing additional anatomy, relationships of structures, traumatic fractures, resorptions, perforations and help during treatment complications.

Our “Conebeam Guy” explains the childhood experiences that shaped him into a global expert on all things CBCT. Bruno lets you in on taboo words to avoid when dealing with patients, outlines the pillars of imaging science and shares new advancements in software and hardware that correct for artifacts and silence that ever-present nuisance: “noise”.

Ever wonder what’s the real dosing limit for patients when it comes to CBCT? How about root fractures — which factors really influence correct diagnosis? All these questions and more are answered in a context that is entertaining and educational. If you’ve ever missed an MB2 canal, don’t miss this conversation with the Conebeam Guy!
