  • Following on from the Level 2A Certification course; this 1 day course offers an interactive, delegate centred approach to learning. We deliver this further CBCT imaging course to enable the delegate to maintain the safe operation and interpretation of CBCTs.

    Delegates are invited to sign up for this course 3 months after attending the original CBCT 2A course to consolidate learning and address any issues which arise after the original training event. Attendance at the Level 2A Certification course on 9 and 10 May is required in order to complete certification, if you have not already booked your place on the Level 2A course please click here.

    Delivery is based around current education theory with focussed reflection, peerlearning and discussion. This format has been fine-tuned using delegate feedback since 2016. We aim to provide an engaging, non-threatening educational environment.

    Course Aims

    • To allow dental clinicians an introduction and overview of CBCT in order to comply with current guidelines. This will build on any standard IRMER course and CBCT (level 1) training already undertaken.
    • Allow delegates to make decisions on CBCT that are safe and informed with respect to justification and interpretation.
    • Give the dentist a structure and the tools (`higher order` thinking) to report a CBCT safely. (See below)

    Course Objectives

    • An understanding / overview of how to safely refer and justify CBCT (IRMER Referrer and Practitioner roles.)
    • Where applicable, the ability to operate the CBCT scanner safely in the IRMER Operator role and know how and when to ask for advice.
    • The delegate will have knowledge of the current updates in Radiation Protection Legislation surrounding CBCT imaging. (IRMER2018 and IRR2017)
    • An understanding of Radiation dosages and how patient dose experience is potentially affected by the CBCT imaging modality.
    • An ability to recognise normal 3D CBCT anatomy and appreciate common pathologies that may appear in the scanning Field of View (FOV)
    • An ability to structure a CBCT report IRMER Operator (Reporter role)
    • An ability to refer ` CBCT acquisitions` for a level 3 specialist radiological opinion with in an appropriate timescale.

    • Lead the dental team in terms of championing good radiological practice and encourage robust QA and Audit ( Quality Improvement)
    • Utilise/ comply with the current Radiation protection legislation surrounding CBCT
    • Assess the available Radiation dosages involved when utilising CBCT and explain these to the patient if asked to do so.(in general/ realistic terms).
    • Recognise normal 3D CBCT anatomy and appreciate common pathologies that may appear in the small and larger CBCT Field of View (FOV)
    • Structure a CBCT report (IRMER Operator (Reporter role) for those using small volume CBCT and know when to refer for `level 3` advice.
    • Refer ` CBCT acquisitions` for a specialist radiological opinion where necessary.
    • Enthuse and lead their clinical teams to promote imaging excellence.
