Imaging is an important diagnostic tool in the clinical assessment of dental patients. The introduction of cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) that is specifically dedicated to imaging maxillofacial region heralds a paradigm shift from a 2D to a 3D approach to data acquisition and image reconstruction.

The International Medical University (IMU), School of Dentistry, is organising a full day workshop, that encompasses lectures from experience speakers who used CBCT successfully and hands-on training in manipulating CBCT images for diagnosis, treatment planning and guide operative and surgical procedures in implant dentistry, oral surgery, endodontics and orthodontics.

Participants will be paired and each pair will have hands-on experience on a laptop working on cases.


  • To enhance the diagnosis and treatment planning skills of dental clinicians through the application of CBCT.
