Dear Dr Ackermann
We have had the same problem but have a solution (available soon) which may be of interest to you:
The UK legislation also requires that people are 'adequately trained' to perform any given radiographic examination, thus leaving us with a similar problem. The British Society of Dental & Maxillofacial Radiology joined forces with the Health Protection Agency (HPA) to tackle this and other CBCT-related issues on installation, running and maintaining the equipment, testing and QA, dose optimisation, compliance with the UK legislation etc. The SEDENTEX CT project had an input into this report (particularly on justification of CBCT imaging), and hopefully this report will also have some input into the SEDENTEX CT project.
The report, which includes a section on recommendations for training of staff requesting, justifying, performing and reporting on CBCT is about to be published by the HPA in the UK. I will e-mail you the 'Training' component as soon as it is given the go-ahead.
With kind regards
KCL Dental Institute

Subject: [Oradlist] CBCT training
The EADMFR Basic Principles on the use of Cone Beam CT states that adequate
theoretical and practical training is needed to have the right to use a CBCT equipment.
My question is: How is it applied in your country? How long such a training lasts (theoretical and practical), and what is the curriculum for it?
Anyway, one can not go out to the traffic until having a driver license!
Thank you for your help
