In this presentation, Dr. Antenucci will address a
rationale and approach for optimal and routine radiographic imaging in clinical
dentistry with 3D. Both 2D imaging such as panoramic images and panoramic bite
wings, as well as 3D imaging using Ultra low Dose Conebeam technology are
incorporated to achieve optimal treatment planning for the patient best
care. Protocols in imaging have changed dramatically over the course of
this past decade with the introduction of new technologies that allow dentists
to visualize problems and structures in infinite detail while delivering less
radiation to the patient than with traditional imaging techniques. ALARA was
yesterday's standard when considering diagnostic radiation and patient health
and safety - ALADA is today's standard. Today’s advanced imaging
allows superior diagnosis at lower doses of radiation.
