Cone beam computerized technology (CBCT) offers 3-dimensional visualization and more accurate imaging compared to analog and digital radiographs. This cutting-edge imaging technology enhances the dental practice. An adequate training and education program on its utilization and diagnostic-therapeutic potential while considering the risk benefit of ionizing radiation to patients proves prudent for an efficient dental practice.

This course will provide the practitioner with a thorough knowledge of the principles behind CBCT, including: CBCT image and technique selection; reducing radiation risk; understanding 3-D anatomical variations; recognizing key pathological processes; and the process of CBCT interpretation and reporting. The course content will follow the guidelines provided by European Academy of DentoMaxilloFacial Radiology 3D – Framework for Specialist Training in Dental and Maxillofacial Radiology 3D 2008.

Learning Objectives

  • The course will provide an understanding of basic working principles of CBCT and radiation protection.
  • Knowledge of the normal anatomical features seen on images taken of the teeth, oral cavity, jaws, facial structures and of the head and neck region.
  • A deep insight into applications of CBCT scans in various realms of dentistry and beyond.
  • Practical training sessions and hands-on case interpretations of volumes on CBCT software.


  • What is CBCT?
    • Fundamental principles and comparison with other imaging modalities.
    • Setting up a CBCT Office
    • Operational parameters and device settings
    • Radiation Hazards and Dosimetry
    • Knowledge and understanding of the relevant national regulations and guidelines of the country
  • Anatomic review in various anatomic planes
  • Artefacts on CBCT
  • Interpretation of the images of disorders that affect the oral & maxillofacial region.
  • Knowledge and understanding of the diseases that affect the oral & maxillofacial region.
  • Introduction to the software followed by Hands-On.


  • CBCT in Endodontics – Imaging protocols & interpretation of aberrant canal anatomy, localisation of accessory canals, calcified canals, root fractures, broken instruments, pulp stones etc.
  • CBCT in pathologies of jaws and surgical planning
  • CBCT in Pedodontics – considerations for a child patient
  • CBCT in Periodontology – periodontal bone defects, bone grafting
