Clinical and Radiographic Evaluation with Case Presentations

Clinical examination and radiographic evaluation are two important steps that complement each other for accurate diagnosis and treatment. Anamnesis and clinical examination provide adequate information about the presence of the disease, but further and more important information and differential diagnosis are obtained by radiographic evaluation. Most of the radiographic features give more clues than other features. Dentists should know the radiographic anatomy well and have equipment to interpret pathological images. The important issue in definitive diagnosis is that combine the radiolographic features with other diagnostic information. In this presentation after giving brief information about the radiographic anatomy, clinical and radiographic features and differential diagnosis of anatomic variations and pathologies will be discussed with cases.


Cone Beam Computed Tomography in Endodontics

An important part of diagnosis and treatment in endodontics is the accurate radiographic interpretation of root canal system and supporting tissues. Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) provides undistorted three-dimensional images of the maxillofacial structures including teeth and their surrounding tissues. The use of CBCT in endodontic practice is increasing rapidly for the diagnosis of endodontic pathosis, visualization of root canal morphology, evaluation of root fractures, assessment of external and internal root resorptions. Although intraoral images are the first imaging technique of choice for the management of endodontic disease, CBCT images have a superior accuracy in the assessment of complicated cases. In this panel, clinical application of CBCT in endodontic cases will be discussed .
