Anatomical Variations on CBCT: Can They Impact Clinical Practice?
An ACDE Series Webinar

Course Description:

Cone beam computed tomography is a powerful tool in dentistry and is widely used for diagnosis and treatment planning in various clinical conditions. Over two decades of CBCT use have made us aware of how often patients present anatomical variations not seen on 2D radiographs. Moreover, these anatomical variations may significantly impact treatment planning. This course covers common anatomical variations seen on CBCT and how these findings impact clinical practice.

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:

  1. Recognize dental, osseous, and neurovascular anatomical variations commonly observed in CBCT exams.
  2. Discuss the clinical significance of anatomical variation findings and how they may influence treatment planning.
