The best treatment outcomes start with the correct diagnosis and coming to the correct diagnosis is considered 90% of the treatment.


As the end of the TMD/Sleep dentistry series, this course focuses on how to use radiographic information clinically. It takes the participant through the thought process of forming a diagnosis. Beginning with clinical examination and tentative clinical diagnosis, the participant will learn how to extract radiographic information from the diagnostic imaging and form a radiographic diagnosis, then how put the information together correlating clinical symptoms with radiographic appearance to reach the final diagnosis. The entities tackled will include various intracapsular disorders (such as disc displacements, different phases of degenerative changes, adhesions, synovial chondromatosis, rheumatoid and juvenile idiopathic arthritis) and extracapsular disorders (muscle pain, benign and malignant tumors and trauma) as well as some examples of airway pathology, followed by the management of these cases. Imaging decision making and CBCT and MRI protocols for analysis of the TMJ and airway will be discussed, as well as how to obtain the best image quality from your CBCT scanner, how radiation dose plays into image quality and understanding the factors contributing to radiation dose, and how to discuss the issue of radiation dose with your patient.
