  • The introduction of Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) in dental practice constitutes a paradigm shift in the way clinicians look at and interpret diagnostic information. With the rapid pace of CBCT development, and with new manufacturers and models appearing in the market each year, it is clear that this technology is assuming an increasingly important role in dental diagnosis. Because of this it will be important to provide a solid foundation on which dental students, general practitioners and specialists alike can build diagnostic skills utilizing this imaging modality. CBCT provides volumetric scans of the patient head that can be visualized in a variety of ways both in 2D and 3D. The newly developed MARCILAN website offers a highly interactive, multimedia rich, web-based, didactic module for interpretation and correlation of 3D anatomical structures as seen on CBCT. However, the current offering does not include a module to aid clinicians in the diagnosis of pathological conditions. The purpose of this study is to develop a web-based instructional module to interpret pathology as presented on cone beam CT images.
