The session will be moderated by Mr. Carneal and will feature the following speakers:
- William Harrell, Jr., DMD, C. DSM, RadSite Chair, Cone Beam CT Standards Committee, and Assistant Associate Professor at the University of Alabama, Birmingham

“The webinar will describe the two-year standards development journey which has incorporated key performance and manufacture requirements with an eye on developing uniform physics metrics for Cone Beam CT in the near future,” Dr. Siegel elaborates. “This dynamic session also will highlight what RadSite has learned about fine-tuning the final requirements during the beta-test accreditation review period.”
“The new Cone Beam CT Accreditation Program will establish the most detailed standards for specialty imaging that are available for this emerging market,” adds Dr. Harrell. “The Standards Committee spent many hours discussing key aspects of what is required to promote quality-based imaging—including scope of practice parameters for various types of dental and medical providers using Cone Beam CT systems for diagnostic imaging.”
“Utilizing the input of numerous clinical and industry experts, we have drafted high-fidelity standards that address key operational issues, such as the role and prerequisite qualifications of the clinical director, interpreting provider, imaging technologist, and other personnel,” said Dr. Powell. “The session will highlight our next steps for launching the new Dental and Medical Cone Beam CT MIPPA Accreditation Programs.”
