Ernest Lam: Current trends & future developments in imaging
- Review of anatomical consideration for implant therapy
- Update on radiation technology and physics
- Actual and future trends in imaging technologies
- New York 2013 symposium lecture
It is crucial the clinician has a fully versed understanding in the anatomy of the surgery site and in many instances this information is gained through imaging technologies. Dr Lam reviews the anatomical considerations and characteristics in the oral and maxilla-facial region, which may influence implant surgery procedures and techniques, compares two-dimensional and three-dimensional imaging options and reviews and discusses risks associated with radiation. Dr Lam gives insight in new trends in cone-beam and medical scanning technology, and concludes that improved and adequate visualization of soft tissue and density of bone could be possible future improvements in CBCT scan imaging technology.
