Pushing the limits in Endodontics Utilizing a New CBCT Software (e-VOLDx) and Dynamic Real Time Navigation
October 20    10:30 – 11:30

Cone-beam technology currently has numerous applications in the dental field. CBCT has a great impact in Endodontics and is changing case diagnosis, treatment planning and treatment outcomes in the daily practice dramatically. CBCT provides the clinician with the ability to assess an area of interest in 3 dimensions and eliminates the superimposition that is inherent in conventional radiographic imaging.
This presentation will detail the utilization of CBCT DICOM imaging data as a scaffold to integerate new technologies as e-VOLDx (300 times the resolution of CBCT software) and Navident dynamic navigation in treatment planning and treatment of non-surgical and surgical cases. This presentation will demonstrate the application of e-VOLDx software, allowing clinicians to visualize structures never seen in an imaging software before as the dental pulp, nerve bundles, maxillary sinus membranes, marginal ridge crackes and vertical root fractures for the first time.
CBCT technology and e-VOLDX have provided clinicians with a different understanding of the dynamics of dental disease and healing. Based on the information provided from CBCT volumes, changes in treatment protocols and armamentarium will be presented.

Currently he is the director of endodontic research, and a clinical associate professor in the Endodontic department at College of Dentistry at UIC, dividing his time between teaching, research, intra-and extra-mural continuing education and private practice. He currently serves on the Scientific Advisory and Manuscript Review Panels of the Journal of Endodontics, and Evidence Based Endodontics Journal. He served on the AAE Research and Scientific Affairs Committee and co-chaired AAE/AAOMR committee drafting the joint position statement on CBCT (2015). He has numerous publications and chapters in peer reviewed journals and textbooks (Pathways of the pulp, Contemporary surgical Endodontics, and Endodontics Principles and Practice). He is the co-editor of the CBCT text book (3-D Imaging in Endodontics: A new Era in diagnosis and treatment) by Springer (2016). He is a recipient of the Calvin D. Torneck Part-Time Educator Award for 2022 by the American Association of Endodontists. He is a Diplomate of the American Board of Endodontics and gave numerous presentations nationally and internationally.
