The American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology (AAOMR) will hold its 58th annual session in Chicago from Wednesday, November 28, through Sunday, December 2.

"The recurring Chicago meeting is one of our academy’s most popular," said Michael K. Shrout, DMD, executive director of the AAOMR.

The purpose of the academy is to promote and advance the art and science of radiology in dentistry, and to provide a forum for communication and professional advancement among its members. The meeting is an opportunity for knowledge exchange through continuing education, the presentation of papers and posters, and other scientific seminars.

"The Saturday continuing-education program, centered around discussions of cone-beam CTs, will be interesting to general dentists and specialists alike," Shrout said.

This year’s annual session is scheduled to allow attendance at the Radiological Society of North America’s annual session, also in Chicago, which takes place from November 25–30.

Courses will include two continuing education courses, one on molecular imaging and another on head and neck radiographic anatomy, and two scientific sessions on abstract presentations of research in radiology.

In addition, the popular Clinico-Radiologic Conference, an interactive discussion of diagnostically challenging cases, will again be presented. New this year will be a full-day CE course on 3D dental imaging, with an emphasis on cone-beam CT in diagnosis and image guidance of treatment.
