Dental Imaging: How to report and why

presented by Dr Charles Lott

Everlearning Radiology Webinar _ Dental Imaging_ how to report and why


Dental Imaging is a niche area of radiology often approached with uncertainty by Radiologists.

Radiologists may assume that the referrer will self-report or be better skilled in interpretation, which is not universally true. This is important to the provision of quality care and avoidance of medicolegal events for both the referrer and the radiology service/reporting radiologist. A missed treatable mandibular tumour is the responsibility of the reporting radiologist even if reporting ‘Images Provided’ as much as the treating practitioner.
The dentist, dental specialist, orofaciomaxillary surgeon, emergency doctor and the patient all benefit from good information and exclusion of unexpected pathology.

This talk will:
• Discuss OPG and Cone beam CT imaging.
• Update you on standard nomenclature and ways to describe findings.
• Show you a way to report quickly and provide useful information.
• Show several Aunt-Minnie pathologies you should know about (and things not to miss).
• Update you on imaging for implants.
• Touch on Cephalometric measurements.

You will learn to:
• report an OPG better
• name findings using standard terminology
• understand use and limitations of Cone Beam CT in dental imaging
• increase your awareness on implant imaging

This webinar provides 1 CPD credit in accordance with the CPD Scheme of the Royal College of Radiologists and RANZCR. CPD points are issued within a month of viewing.
