Dental Cone Beam CT Radiological Interpretation PG Cert

The details on this page are for the 2023-24 year of entry (programme starting in January 2024).


Our postgraduate certificate in Dental Cone Beam CT Radiological Interpretation is a part-time distance-learning course to train dentists to be able to use CBCT imaging appropriately to help diagnose clinical problems of the dento-alveolar areas of the jaws, correctly interpret the radiological signs and write structured radiological reports. This course is mostly delivered online, so you can study with minimum disruption to your professional and personal life while benefiting from world-class teaching.

I found the course extremely well organised, easy to navigate and supported by well-structured webinars. Dr Suk Ng and her team went the extra mile to support candidates before the examinations in London.
