Ernest Lam DMD, MSc, PhD, FRCD(C) Associate Dean, Graduate Education University of Toronto
Recognizing the range of normal anatomical appearances on a well-made image is the most elementary step in image interpretation. At times, however, normal appearances can be altered as a result of patient anatomy, imaging system-related idiosyncrasies, or errors in patient positioning or image acquisition. Part 1 lecture will focus on panoramic image ordering practices, image acquisition and patient positioning, including positioning errors.
Participants will learn:
- evidence-based guidelines for ordering panoramic images
- how patient- and panoramic system-related factors can alter the appearances of normal anatomy.
