Greetings from the Oral Radiology Team of PIDC. Glad to have you on board with us on this workshop.

Penang International Dental College (PIDC) is a Malaysian 6 star rated Private Dental College which offers a five-year Bachelor of Dental Surgery training program approved by the Ministry of Education (MOE) and fully accredited by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA). Scheduled, emergency, interventional and routine diagnostic imaging services are provided for patients in the Department of Oral Medicine and Radiology in PIDC. Diagnostic services and technologies offered include the following: 

1. Intra oral Radiology (conventional) 

2. Digital Intra oral radiograph – VaTech EZ Sensor

3. Phosphor Storage Plates (PSP)

4. Digital Orthopantomogram (OPG)

5. Digital Cephalography

6. Digital TMJ Tomogram

7. Cone Beam Computer Tomography (CBCT)

Maxillofacial cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is one of the most significant advances in dental imaging since rotational panoramic radiography. While the acquisition of CBCT data is technically simple, numerous parameters should be considered so that CBCT imaging is performed appropriately and ‘task specific’. This involves an understanding of not only exposure (e.g. geometric and software parameters to minimize patient dose, while sustaining diagnostic image quality) but also image formatting options to maximize image display. CBCT images contain far more detailed information of the maxillofacial region than do panoramic or other 2‐D images and necessitate a thorough knowledge of the 3‐D anatomy of the region and considerations of variability in the range of the anatomically normal. These principles, procedures and protocols, together with the interpretation of CBCT images form the basis of best practices in maxillofacial CBCT imaging.

The Workshop aims at bridging the gap in knowledge for current CBCT users as well as those who would like to invest in a CBCT machine.

TESTIMONIALS

This CBCT workshop is highly recommended for all dentist and students especially new dental officers who are practicing in Government sector. They will be encountering more traumatic, head and neck lesions and minor surgery cases which will be interpreted using CBCT when they get attached to hospitals mainly in Oral Maxillofacial Surgery Department. This course will be very useful and they can learn in detail on usage of CBCT.
