Course Description This course consists of a series of lectures that deal with radiologic appearances of normal structures and disease processes and specific diseases of concern to the dentist. The practical sessions will introduce the student to the basic technique of making intra-oral, panoramic and extraoral radiographs. The lectures are presented in conjunction with several other courses including Periodontics, Operative Dentistry, and Oral Surgery. Although material covered may be examined in examinations by those courses, it may be included in any subsequent radiology examinations. The practical component will introduce the student to the clinic by allowing her/him to demonstrate and emphasize on the effects of varying the numerous factors that are operational in the production of radiographs.
