DENT 2108 - Diagnostic Radiology

[26 Hours]
The purpose of this course is to enable students to recognize and name pathological changes and normal anatomy as seen on intra- and extra-oral radiographs because in any dental treatment, diagnosis of the pathological process is of prime importance. Radiographs, though not the only mode for diagnosis, play a major role in enabling the diagnostician to visualize structures not seen on clinical examination. This course will also deal with the normal anatomic landmarks as seen on intra- and extra-oral radiographs. This knowledge will enable the diagnostician to distinguish the radiographic appearance of normal from those of abnormal structures of the human jaws.
