Laboratory 3A: Intraoral Dental Radiography Part II: Understanding the Opacities and Lucencies in Small Animal Radiography (Saturday 10/28/17 2pm-6pm)

A dynamic lecture series presentation utilizing intraoral clinical radiographs will be presented in order for the veterinarian to understand, learn, and enhance interpretation of intraoral radiographs in the dog and cat.  The importance and necessity of intraoral radiographs will be presented by using clinical case examples.  Normal radiographic dental anatomy to abnormal pathology will be presented to prepare the participants to learn how to assess and make radiographic diagnoses.  Additionally, clinical treatment recommendations based on the intraoral radiographic abnormalities will be presented.  The image-based lectures will be supplemented with comprehensive notes so that the participants can focus on the images, content, and learning during the lectures.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will learn to recognize normal roentgen anatomy of the dentition and the related periodontal structures, endodontic structures and maxillofacial bone in the dog and cat
  • Participants will learn the correct labial mounting technique for viewing intraoral radiographs
  • Participants will learn roentgen signs of periodontal disease, endodontic disease, feline tooth resorption, canine tooth resorption, neoplasia, and common oral/dental pathology
  • Participants will learn the clinical value and necessity of intraoral radiographs in clinical practice
