COURSE OBJECTIVE

This course provides instruction on the use of Cone Beam 3D volume data and data manipulation, anatomy and pathology review, DICOM compliant third-party software and Tx STUDIO and Invivo software review. It is a systematic approach to reviewing anatomical data in cone beam 3D scans. It is intended for doctors and staff who use  i-CAT, i-CAT Precise, i-CAT Next Generation, i-CAT FLX, i-CAT FLX MV and GXCB-500, and/or review  cases in Tx STUDIO and Invivo for treatment planning and pathology review. Attendees should bring a laptop with Tx STUDIO  or Anatomage software installed; we will provide  network connectivity.
