So what’s been happening? Well as I’m sure you have noticed, it’s been a while since I posted anything. The reason is… busy. I don’t think I have ever been this busy in my life. I started reading CBCT scans on my own website at omrd.com. The feedback has been excellent and I get a… Continue reading 2023 Update
A new oral and maxillofacial radiology program has just been announced at Stony Brook University School of Dental Medicine. The program will begin July 1st, 2017. What does this mean? Typically this means that the school sees an increased demand for the field. If my personal experience hasn’t been convincing enough… this is basically a good sign.… Continue reading New OMR Program
If you are a Mac user and an OMR then you’ve probably tried to use OsiriX before to look at CBCT scans. You’ve also probably noticed that it is missing some basic features that are really necessary for OMR and the dental field all together. I’m pleased to find a new plugin has emerged for OsiriX that… Continue reading OsiriX Dental Plugin

The codes also account for proper interpretation of… Continue reading New ADA Codes

It means demand is increasing and schools are becoming interested in providing coursework. In addition, I heard that Baylor… Continue reading Three New OMFR Programs
Osirix was just updated to work with OS X Lion. This is my favorite DICOM viewer and has always been pretty impressive. Only thing is it needs the interface to be updated and unified a bit more. It’s a bit all over the place.
I found an interesting article discussing whether general radiology is needed anymore or are the subspecialties taking over. I would imagine that just as with any health practice, eventually it becomes more specialized and more diversified as knowledge increases. It used to be that doctors did everything, now there are many specialties in medicine. The… Continue reading Is General Radiology Over?
