Hatfield, PA/Des Plaines, IL (PRWEB) April 18, 2009
The 3rd International Congress on 3-D Dental Imaging, sponsored by Imaging Sciences International and Gendex Dental Systems and held this year in Chicago, Illinois on June 19th and 20th, features a variety of dental clinicians and professionals from nearly all dental specialties. These eleven leaders in education offer their expertise on practical applications of this dynamic technology as well as an interdisciplinary teamwork approach to 3-D treatment that can benefit both patients and the practice.
"Born of a vision to help clinicians better understand patient anatomy in three dimensions, i-CAT technology changed the landscape of treatment planning in dentistry," shares Scott D. Ganz, DMD, 2-year veteran of the Congress and a recognized expert in the field. "The Congress carries on the vision this year as it showcases interdisciplinary relationships involving 3-D." As general dentists and specialists, novices and experts alike, continue to explore the evolving world of 3-D imaging, they seek guidance on how to utilize it for a wide variety of treatment modalities including implants, bone grafting, oral surgery, orthodontics, and endodontics. "It is clear that this state-of-the-art imaging method acts as the bridge between specialities, enhances communication among clinicians, and provides the finest diagnostic foundation for defining treatment alternatives for our patients," continues Ganz.
As the interest in Cone Beam escalated, the Congress was instituted in response to the demand for peer-to-peer education. "The adoption of 3-D radiography continues to grow at an astounding pace. Dentists are eager to learn about its benefits and how to apply it to their practices," states Chuck Ravetto, Vice President of Marketing for Imaging Sciences and Gendex. "We are proud to offer such a powerfully informative program that provides real-world clinical and practical advice."
This 2-day course utilizes not only lecture, but also discussion formats. "One of the most appreciated aspects of the Congress is the chance for lecturers and attendees to participate in an open exchange of ideas", offers Steven Guttenberg, DDS, MD, a returning featured speaker. Participants also have the opportunity to interact with a variety of vendors who offer 3-D supportive products including imaging and implant systems, as well as 3-D treatment planning software.
