RADIOGRAPHY AND RADIATION PROTECTION: WHAT’S LURKING IN THE SHADOWS? – AN UPDATE ON RADIOGRAPHIC REPORTING AND CBCT

Radiology and radiography are used every day in general practice and are an important GDC core subject. This lecture is designed for the general practitioner to refresh and update their knowledge in this area.

The first part of the lecture describes some general principles of radiographic reporting and highlights some of the common difficulties in panoramic interpretation. The second part focuses on CBCT and will look at how these images are formed and when this modality should be considered to compliment plain images.

Some clinical examples will be presented at the end as an interactive discussion.

Learning Objectives

On completion of this lecture you should:

  • Understand how to assess a panoramic image in a systemic way.
  • Have refreshed your knowledge of anatomy on a panoramic image and be aware of how this may be affected by positioning variations.
  • Understand how a CBCT image is formed and when it should be considered to compliment 2D imaging,
  • Recognise some common abnormalities on panoramic images.
