"'The Past is a Foreign Country' and How to Research it with Digital Maps and Visualization"

Description:
"The past is a foreign country" if we are to believe Leslie Poles Hartley's book and its better known film adaptation.

Presentation Title:
"Cone Beam CT imaging for teaching anatomy and interpretation of pathology"

Description:
The mainstay of dental radiology has traditionally been 2D imaging. The advent of CBCT imaging in the early 2000s revolutionized dental radiology and the teaching of radiographic interpretation. The ability to see anatomy in 3D helps students understand the interrelationship between the teeth and surrounding oral and maxillofacial anatomy.
