LEIPZIG, Germany: Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) has taken on greater significance over the past few years and has improved the standard of dental care in many fields. A free webinar, presented by the Dental Tribune Study Club on Feb. 19, will discuss the advantages of CBCT imaging in diagnosis, treatment planning and long-term treatment outcome evaluation in trauma cases.

Present state-of-the-art CBCT units produce excellent high-resolution images with a relatively low radiation burden and at a low cost. The use of CBCT imaging has expanded to include not only dental specialties but also broader medical specialties, such as maxillofacial surgery, otorhinolaryngology, plastic surgery and orthopaedics. One such application of CBCT imaging is the diagnosis of fractures in the maxillofacial area.

Webinar participants will learn why CBCT is the modality of choice in evaluating facial traumas, identifying and characterising fractures and associated complications in detail, as well as evaluating the surgical outcome.

The one-hour webinar, titled “CBCT and traumatology” and supported by Soredex, is free of charge and will be broadcast live online on Thursday, 19 February, from 7 p.m. CET. Participants will be able to ask questions via a chat window and have the opportunity to earn a continuing education credit by completing a multiple-choice questionnaire on the topic discussed.
