Description: Every course in the PERC curriculum emphasizes diagnostic imaging with both CT and MR scans. With the advent of office based CBCT technology, there are still many unanswered questions about the anatomical findings, and for many dentists this adds to the anxiety of potentially missing pathology. Scans and Scans will give you the ability to maximize the diagnostic capability of your imaging. Dr. Piper has generated images on over ten thousand patients in his career, and he shares his vast experience to help you to develop any level of expertise that you wish. If your goal is to order CT or MR scans from outside your practice, then you will learn how to get exactly what you need. If you are wanting to maximize the use of your own CBCT, then you will be shown exactly how to understand growth analysis, skeletal instability, joint foundational damage, and occlusal assessment. If you want to become an expert in foundational dentistry and joint imaging then this is your best opportunity to do so. The specific clinical skills from Scans and Scans will make your dental practice more exciting and rewarding.
