HATFIELD, Pa., USA: i-CAT, a brand of the KaVo Kerr Group along with Henry Schein Dental, has announced the 8th Annual International Congress on 3D Dental Imaging, Fall Session, to be held Nov. 7-8, 2014 at the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Marina in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. The theme of this educational experience is “Accelerate Your Practice: 3D-driven Success.”

The two-day event will feature lectures and demonstrations of real 3-D imaging applications in implants, orthodontics, TMJ and airway diagnosis, oral and maxillofacial surgery, and periodontics.

Some selected topics for this year’s congress include:

  • CBCT and airway-centered treatment planning.
  • The clinical integration between 3D dentistry and otolaryngology through CBCT: an ENT’s prospective.
  • Using 3-D imaging to avoid dental implant complications.
  • Unlocking the power of CBCT: Beyond the basics and into the future.
  • Reduce stress with implant surgery using 3-D imaging.
  • The ins and outs of dental insurance: learning how to navigate dental benefits in your office.

According to event organizers, networking opportunities will abound, as attendees can socialize with colleagues and industry speakers, explore partner exhibits and visit the i-CAT booth to see the latest products and services.

A User’s Meeting on Nov. 6 will feature product and technology updates, a discussion of how to select the best scan for each patient, live hands-on patient-positioning tips, data information on networking and backup, and how to optimize the performance of the i-CAT system.

Dr. Cynthia K. Brattesani, moderator of the event, has a patient-focused philosophy that blends well with the clinical advantages associated with 3D imaging. She says, “I am thrilled to moderate this 8th Annual Congress and network with knowledgeable and experienced colleagues in the field of 3D imaging. 3D imaging is a multi-faceted modality with benefits in diagnosis, treatment, and implementation. It also involves the patient in all of these processes through their greater understanding of what we, as the dental professionals, want to accomplish for them.”

Rick Matty, director of marketing for i-CAT, adds, “Educating dentists on how to use cone beam 3D scans effectively and safely is important to us, and the 8th International Congress on 3D Dental Imaging strives to achieve that goal. This event has gained notoriety and respect from national and international dental professionals. Whether the clinician is new to 3D imaging or already has a system in place, these topics can be of great value to any practice.”

2014 also marks i-CAT’s 10th anniversary celebration. Over the past decade, Team i-CAT has evolved into a trusted developer and manufacturer of computer-controlled dental and maxillofacial radiography products. In the recent past, the company unveiled its i-CAT FLX and i-CAT FLX MV (medium field-of-view) both of which feature QuickScan+ that allows for a full-dentition 3D scan at a comparable dose to a 2D panoramic image (data on file, indications for use at www.i-cat.comifu). i-CAT’s commitment to safe and effective 3-D cone beam imaging continues to drive development of new products that can lead to more precise dental care.

Besides the latest information on 3-D imaging, attendees also receive 11 CEUs. Registration can be completed online, by fax, or by phone.
