Course Description

Morning Session: 9-12

Subject: Interpretation of Radiographic Pathology

Synopsis: An algorithm will be presented to aid in the interpretation of radiographs exhibiting bone alterations suggestive of an intraosseous pathology. As a part of this topic, various intraosseous, space-occupying radiodense, radiolucent and mixed lesions will be discussed. The presentation will largely be based on findings in routine PAN, occlusal and periapical plain film exposures.

Where relevant, appropriate clinical and histological pictures will be included.

Afternoon Session: 1-4

Subject: Revisiting Basic Oral Pathology

Synopsis: This afternoon session will be devoted to the study of routine and common alterations associated with developmental anomalies of teeth and mucosa. Effects of physical and chemical insult on the oral structures, common oral ulcerative conditions, warts and benign growths as well as white lesions including precancer will also be addressed. Other topics discussed will include skin precancer and cancer (actinic keratosis, basal cell carcinoma and melanoma).

Filled with numerous high resolution pictures, the discussion will highlight the diagnostic features and suggest management, if at all required.
