Don’t miss out on this course as you will learn about three dimensional surface and volumetric scan data and how this information will support your restoratives. This presentation will demonstrate the clinical value from scan data by integrating cloud services, building accurate patient specific models, integrated diagnosis, treatment simulation & planning and dental manufacturing. There are anatomic boundaries in the maxillofacial region that when exceeded during dental therapy may result in non-ideal treatment outcomes. This presentation will discuss several anatomic boundaries that are important to all disciplines of dentistry including general dentistry, surgery, orthodontics, implant dentistry, endodontics and TMD. The role of imaging for identifying and characterizing the anatomic boundaries will be presented.
- Identify principles of cone beam CT
- Analyze principles of creating patient specific models
- Define treatment simulation markers
- Utilize cloud services for volumetric and surface scans
- Recognize key anatomic boundary conditions
- Select the patients that would benefit from advanced imaging (CBCT)
- Apply problem-solving strategies to determine the etiology of abnormal anatomy
Speaker: Dr. Hatcher was an Associate Professor and Chairman of the Division of Radiology at the University of Alberta, as well as, the Director of the TMJ Investigation Unit and Clinic. He has faculty appointments at both the University of California San Francisco and the University of Pacific Dental Schools. Presently, Dr. Hatcher is in private practice at ddi imaging center.
