Radiation Safety Concern and Guidelines for 2D and 3D Images by Dr. Jie Yang

Dentists and dental specialists use two dimensional (2D) intra-and extra-oral radiographs for diagnosis on a daily base. It is important for the dental professionals to understand the benefit and potential risk of ionizing radiation, and to be familiar with national guidelines for prescribing dental radiographs. Nowadays, three dimensional (3D) cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) has been widely used for implant placement, temporomandibular joint abnormalities, orthodontic and endodontic treatment planning, and airway assessment. We must take effort to minimize the patient’s radiation exposure from both 2D and 3D images. We should also be prepared to discuss the benefit and risk of diagnostic imaging with the patient. 

Upon course completion, you will:

  • Understand the risk and benefit balance of dental radiographs.
  • Understand ADA/FDA guidelines for dental image prescriptions.
  • Know the principles of 3D Cone-Beam CT (CBCT) and its dental applications .
  • Understand radiation dose, safety concern, and position guidelines on CBCT.
