AADMRT Spring Seminar & i-CAT Users Meeting

I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to the AADMRT 2009 Spring meeting. This is a one day seminar and this year our theme will be Conebeam CT. If you own a CBCT, or are thinking about getting one, you do not want to miss this meeting. It is packed full of dynamic speakers who will present to you the information needed in today’s competitive market.
We will begin the day with Mr. Arun Singh and Mr. David Sebok who will share the podium to discuss the fundamentals of CBCT. You will learn to better appreciate the effects of noise, signal, artifacts and other factors that can affect the quality of your scans. Next, we will hear from Dr. Timothy Mickiewicz. He is a great and dynamic speaker who will educate you on his uses of CBCT for facial pain and sleep apnea patients. This is one speaker you will not want to miss, he is upbeat, fun, and very knowledgeable on his material. Mr. Steve McEvoy has spoken to our group before, and we are fortunate to have him back again. He will speak on some of the IT challenges that all CBCT users face and how to avoid common problems. He will also offer solutions for
backing up data, printing, and much more. Dr. Peter Worth will begin the afternoon on his perspective on CBCT and how it relates to orthodontics. I think Dr. Worth has been using CBCT for ortho longer than any orthodontist in the country. He understands its capabilities and he will share with us the orthodontic point of view of what this tool can provide, and what it is lacking. The last speaker of the day is an oral and Maxillofacial Radiologist named Dr. Shaza Mardini. She will address what is seen in CBCT scans and help us understand what constitutes variations of normal, what does not, and when a radiologist should be consulted on a case. The day is packed full of great speakers, 6 speakers in 6 hours. Make your reservations early, we do have limited space and this will sell out. I hope to see you there!

About The Area
Sacramento is a cosmopolitan convergence of tall, gleaming buildings,
hearty Victorians, splendid restaurants and shops, a vibrant arts scene,
and a virtual cornucopia of state of the art meeting facilities. Sacramento
has been called a snapshot of Wild West history in a modern, world-class
city. It is also where the Sacramento River and American river meet.
A small block of rooms have been reserved at the elegant Embassy
Suites Hotel in Sacramento. We have reserved a few rooms for Friday,
April 24th and Saturday, April 25th. The Embassy Suites Hotel is located
right next to the historic Old Town Sacramento. Old Town has a 1850’s
feel with wooden planked side walks and it is on the river front. I highly
