    OMSs have rapidly incorporated cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) imaging into their scope of practice; however the adoption of the clinical indications and payment policies by medical and dental carriers is still evolving. This program will review current published literature, a national academic and practitioner survey, and the growing trends of prior authorization, patient safety, written reports and accreditation as future prerequisites for third party reimbursements.

    Learning Objectives
    1. Discuss the published indications for CBCT in OMS practice;
    2. Describe why CBCT represents a disruptive technology into the OMS practice work flow; and
    3. Discover the competitive advantage of accreditation when interfacing with carriers.
