Cone Beam CT Interpretation and Radiological Safety - Part II

When:  Jan 15, 2021 from 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM (ET)

This course is designed to provide an understanding of the principles and practice of radiological interpretation of cone beam CT scans and how to derive meaningful information from the images.


  • To understand the keys to successful interpretation of CBCT volumes
  • To be able to recognize abnormalities in CBCT volumes
  • To understand the significance of radiographic “signs” or features of lesions
  • To know how to use radiographic features in determining disease categories for the lesions
  • To know how to differentiate between benign and malignant lesions
  • To be familiar with incidental findings often seen in CBCT volumes
Dr. Don Tyndall is Professor in the Division of Diagnostic Sciences at the UNC School of Dentistry and was the former Director of Radiology. Dr. Tyndall graduated from UNC-CH in 1973 with majors in Biology and Ancient history. He received his D.D.S. in 1980 from the UNC School of Dentistry, his M.S.P.H. in Environmental Sciences and Engineering in 1984 specializing in Health Physics and his Ph.D. in 1988 in Radiation Biophysics from the UNC Gillings School of Public Health.

Dr. Tyndall was the Director of Radiology for the School of Dentistry from 1988 to 2019. He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology and was a Director and past President from 1995-1999. Dr.Tyndall has twice served as the Councillor for Scientific Affairs and Public Policy of the Executive Council of the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology. In addition, he is a fellow in the International College of Dentists, and is on the CDOCS faculty as an oral and maxillofacial radiology educator.

His research interests include 3-D digital imaging, 2D and 3D caries detection, applications of CBCT in dentistry and artificial intelligence in radiologic diagnosis. His work as author or co-author has been published in more than 125 journal articles.
