An overview of intraoral and extraoral radiographs, reviewing selection criteria and techniques to expose the patients following the ALARA principle.
A didactic part of this CE, a 1h lecture, presents diverses radiographic techniques, tips and tricks on how to tackle the challenging patients and options to facilitate the interpretation of conventional radiographs.
The interactive imaging circuit portion of the course integrates the use of tablet technology and a methodological process to rule out pathologies. The participant has the opportunity to discuss findings, clarify doubts and get exposed to interesting cases. Errors and selection criteria on intra and extraoral images will be identified.
The participants’ knowledge grows from recognizing different types of receptors to the interpretation of the images itself.
