Cone Beam Computed Tomography in Endodontics
Topic: CBCTLearning Objectives:
- Describe the advantages of limited FOV, high-resolution CBCT in the assessment of endodontic pathoses such as apical periodontitis and root resorption.
- Discuss how volumetric analysis can aid in the diagnosis of periapical pathosis when contradictory clinical signs and symptoms are present.
- Learn how to differentiate between several types of resorptive lesions and determine appropriate treatment.
Endodontic disease adversely affects quality of life and can produce significant morbidity in afflicted patients. 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 CBCT, allowing three-dimensional assessment of odontogenic and non-odontogenic lesion, root canal morphology, root and alveolar fractures, resorptive lesions and anatomy prior to surgery. This lecture will highlight the advantages of CBCT imaging in light of recent research demonstrating a significant increase in lesion visualization when compared to periapical radiographs.
Hourly, half-day or full-day lecture.
