Oral Diagnosis and Radiology

The aim of this postgraduate program is to provide intensive and  advanced training in the field of Oral Diagnosis and Maxillofacial Radiology.

After the program completion, the postgraduate student should:

  • be able to diagnose the pathological lesions of the jaws and the maxillofacial region, the oral cavity, the salivary glands, the maxillary sinus and the temporomandibular joint.
  • be able to select the proper laboratory tests and radiographic examinations based on the history and clinical findings.
  • be able to perform all the intraoral and extraoral radiographic techniques
  • be familiar with and perform alternative and specialized imaging modalities, such as digital radiography and Cone Beam CT
  • be familiar with other medical imaging modalities , such as MRI and ultrasound
  • follow a systematic approach to describing clinical, radiographic and other imaging features in order to formulate differential diagnosis, definitive diagnosis and treatment plan.
  • be aware of the principles and regulations on radiation protection in the dental facility and take proper precautions.
  • be able to implement a well-designed radiological Quality Assurance program in the dental facility.
  • be able to evaluate and carry out scientific work.
  • be familiar with the basic principles of Forensic Dentistry
