Dentists utilizing cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) commonly encounter incidental findings throughout the head and neck, such as various pathologies above and beyond just dental abnormalities. Unfortunately, during the COVID-19 pandemic, many patients chose to avoid going to their medical practitioners out of fear, which has led many dentists to be the first to identify and evaluate advanced pathologies within their CBCT scans.
Some common forms of unexpected pathologies encountered are the presence of benign or malignant tumors, foreign bodies, airway anomalies, sinus anomalies and bone lesions.
In this CE webinar, join Dr. Heidi Kohltfarber, renowned oral and maxillofacial radiologist and founder of Dental Radiology Diagnostics, for a review of incidental findings observed within CBCT scans taken for various reasons, such as implant treatment planning, endodontics, orthodontics, airway analysis, temporomandibular joints and more.
In this CE webinar, Dr. Kohltfarber will discuss:
• How 3D imaging can be an accurate tool for assessing patients with obstructions or abnormalities
• Eye-opening cases with incidental findings confirmed by 3D imaging
• How to communicate unusual findings to the patient
• Management and referral of various incidental findings
