Our postgraduate certificate in Dental Cone Beam CT Radiological Interpretation is a nine month distance-learning programme to train dentists to be able to use CBCT imaging appropriately to help diagnose clinical problems of the dento-alveolar areas of the jaws, correctly interpret the radiological signs and write structured radiological reports.

This course is mostly delivered online, so you can study with minimum disruption to your professional and personal life while benefitting from world-class teaching.

Key benefits

  • The first university-based training of its kind.
  • Enables students to understand and interpret the relatively new x-ray imaging modality of cone beam CT, enabling 3-dimensional cross-sectional imaging.
  • Curriculum delivered by expert teaching staff, all at consultant level and GDC-registered specialists in this subject.
  • The Dental Institute is home to the largest dental radiology department in UK, equipped with state-of-the-art CBCT machines.
  • Delivered primarily online, the programme also includes a block of face-to-face lectures and hands-on training at Guy’s Hospital.
  • Curriculum based on the recently adopted pan-European guidelines1 for CB scanner use, lead authored by King’s College London Dental Institute’s Jackie Brown.

Description

The programme provides knowledge and understanding of:

  • Legislation, guidelines and radiation safety in relation to the use of CBCT in dentistry
  • Justification and selection criteria for CBCT and dental radiography: the value and role of each technique
  • CBCT appearance of normal anatomy, artifacts and pathological conditions of the dento-alveolar region including:

Developmental conditions

  • Impacted teeth
  • Cysts and tumours
  • Radiological signs of benign and malignant lesions
  • Bone disease
  • Bone healing and post-surgical change
  • Soft tissue calcifications
  • Understanding of radiological signs of disease

Students will acquire skills in:

  • The process of making a differential diagnosis using radiological evidence
  • Image manipulation (anonymised scans and viewing software* provided)
  • Understanding which clinical problems may or may not be investigated using modern dental X-ray techniques
  • Viewing strategies for certain clinical applications e.g. impacted lower third molars, implants, endodontics, orthodontics
  • Understanding variations in normal anatomy in dental and maxillofacial regions
  • Critical awareness of limitations of CBCT and dental radiography and the impact of imaging artefacts on radiological interpretation
  • Writing radiological reports using a structured approach and concise description

Teaching

The course is a blended learning programme taught primarily online through the King’s College London’s online learning environment, KEATS (King's E-learning and Teaching Service) which provides information, interactive questions, assignments, use of bibliographic databases and reading material. Content is supplemented by online seminars and tutorials delivered by teaching staff.

The compulsory face-to-face component takes place for five consecutive days in September at King’s College London, Guy’s campus. This component will consist of four days of lectures, practical exercises, mock oral exams and tutor feedback, which will help to prepare students for the final exams taking place on the fifth day.

*In order to view and manipulate CT scans during your online self study activities, you will be required to use free software that only runs on Windows operating systems. More details will be given at the start of the course.

Notes for applicants

The course does not provide great detail on implant planning or image-guided planning/surgery, for which dedicated software is often required.

We have designed the postgraduate training for dentists who want to understand CBCT imaging and wish to write interpretation reports on CBCT scans of dento-alveolar region.

This course is not intended to train a dentist to become a radiologist. In UK, a radiologist is trained within a scheme approved by the regional LETB/Deanery, in a hospital setting, which requires minimum of 4 years full-time training and is examined by the Royal College of Radiologists.

Course format and assessment

The course is divided into modules. You will normally take modules totalling 60 credits.

You are required to take:

  • Physics and Regulations (20 credits)
  • Anatomy (20 credits)
  • Interpretation (20 credits)

Each module consists of 6 units. Typically, one credit equates to 10 hours of work.

Students are assessed through a combination of coursework, written and oral examinations.

Please note: every face-to-face module has a distance learning equivalent with alternative learning activities.

Dissertation/report
All students undertake a library project which is assessed by a 5,000-word project, and a laboratory research project which culminates in a 10,000-word dissertation.

Teaching and learning
The programme is taught by lectures and workshops delivered by experts in various clinical and technical fields of neuroimaging. Assessment is through written examination, coursework, presentations, research project, dissertation and viva voce. Distance learning students may spend up to three months in London carrying out the research project and receiving relevant training and mentoring. Alternatively they may carry out an extended systematic review of the literature related to a chosen field within neuroimaging. In exceptional circumstances students may carry out the research project remotely if they are based at a hospital with established research links with Principal Investigators at the UCL Institute of Neurology.
