  • explain the basic principles and limitations of CBCT imaging.
  • discuss the differences between 2D and 3D imaging.
  • explain the risks of CBCT and describe how to minimize radiation risks to the patient (radiation protection, optimization). 
  • discuss the responsibilities of a CBCT referrer with regard to clinical information for justification purposes. 
  • explain what clinical and disease conditions would and would not benefit from CBCT imaging (selection criteria).
  • recognize normal anatomy of the teeth and supporting structures.
  • recognise the more common imaging artifacts.

The parts of the Dental CBCT for Referrers course and the Dento-alveolar CBCT Interpretation course are both delivered by experienced consultant dental maxillofacial radiologists.

This course is jointly hosted by the British Society of Dental and Maxillofacial Radiology (BSDMFR) and the Royal College of Surgeons of England. The BSDMFR is a specialist dental society, whose primary aim is to promote the advancement of education in dental and maxillofacial diagnostic imaging. Although a small society, membership includes all practising UK dental maxillofacial radiologists and dental radiographers.

The course will be delivered by consultant dental maxillofacial radiologists experienced in dental education. Upon completion, participants will be eligible to apply for the follow-up course Basics of dento-alveolar CBCT interpretation. BSDMFR will be organising and delivering this course and participants are thus advised to contact them directly at suk.ng@kcl.ac.uk.
