This course aims to renew learning in radiation physics, radiation safety and selection criteria, and enhance radiological skills in diagnosis and treatment planning.
Delivered by a range of academic and clinical speakers, the course provides a programme of theoretical and practical aspects of radiography and radiology in dental practice. It will provide five hours' verifiable continuing professional development in this mandatory subject.
Having a varied format, the day is designed to be enjoyable and non-threatening.
- Understand the physics of X ray production, mechanism of harm, dose and risks.
- Apply the principles of radiation protection: equivalent and effective dose; absorption; scatter; shielding; HVL; safe functioning of equipment; optimisation and dose limitation.
- Comply with statutory regulations and guidelines.
- Further develop dental radiography and radiology; positioning and film holders; selection criteria, considerations for diagnosis and treatment planning in clinical practice.
