Event Details...

Dental radiographs have been a valuable diagnostic tool in the dentist’s armamentarium and are commonly being used in various dental practices across Australia. A successful and systematic approach to radiographic interpretation depends on thorough understanding of normal radiographic anatomy of the head and neck. Dental practitioners should also be aware of all the pathologies and especially those associated with systemic illnesses so that they can timely refer the patients to the respective specialists. Permission to conduct this lecture (within Australia and NZ) has been obtained from AHPRA. This presentation highlights variety of oral and dental pathologies (which are illustrated by classic examples and are exclusively Radiology related) that general dental practitioners usually encounter. There are few brain teasing cases which resembled a wide variety of conditions that led to misdiagnosis both on clinical and radiological examination but turned out completely different on histopathological examination. The lecture will also outline the basic steps the clinicians must consider to continually refine their diagnostic skills and knowledge of anatomy in order to formulate a differential diagnosis. At the end of 4 hour interactive lecture, we will have an hour discussion/two way conversation between the presenter and the delegates.

  • Systematic approach to interpretation of Extraoral and Intraoral Radiographs
  • Is that a Normal Radiographic anatomy or a pathology?
  • Evaluation of common pathologies affecting the jaw bones and teeth, developmental disorders of jaws, foreign bodies, trauma, cysts and tumours etc.

  • Maxillary sinus diseases
