Diagnosis is 90% of the Treatment
Course description: TMD and Sleep Dentistry Imaging - Clinical Correlations:
The best treatment outcomes start with the correct diagnosis and coming to the correct diagnosis is considered 90% of the treatment.
This course in the TMD/Sleep Dentistry series 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.
Other courses in the TMD & Sleep Dentistry Imaging Series are not prerequisites for this course.
Key Course Outcomes:
1. Demonstrating the whole sequence of clinical examination and diagnosis, Imaging selection, radiographic evaluation and diagnosis and subsequent clinical decision making that lead to correct treatment.
2. Teaching imaging decision making based upon clinical presentation and indication.
3. Learning how to correlate symptoms and clinical presentation to radiographic appearance.
4. Understanding what factors make for the best image quality.
The overall objective of the TMD and Sleep Dentistry Series is to provide clinicians with a structured imaging knowledge base to make informed decisions on imaging goals, diagnostic objective, dosage, cost, and treatment risk.
The specific objectives are:
1. Increasing the likelihood of a correct diagnosis and appropriate treatment plan.
2. Reducing treatment failures and relapse by arriving at the correct diagnosis the first time.
3. Increasing image quality for all imaging modalities, decreasing the chances of a missed diagnosis or misdiagnosis.
