Department of Imaging and Oral Diagnostics


In the department of Imaging and Oral Diagnostics, students are taught in three disciplines - "Diagnostic Imaging", "Dental Clinical Allergology", and "Oral Pathology".

1. The course in "Diagnostic Imaging" provides knowledge and competencies in general and specialized (maxillo-facial) diagnostic radiology. The course also features a section in physics and radiation protection. This is the theoretical and practical foundation of diagnostic imaging, contributing to accurate diagnosis in the daily practice.
The course is taught in two semesters - VI and VII and includes 45 hours of lectures and 60 hours of practical exercises. 

2. The course in "Dental Clinical Allergology" was developed in response to the increased incidence rate of allergic reactions and diseases caused by dental materials and medicines. Dental Clinical Allergology deals with prevention, diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of patients with allergic diseases affecting the oral cavity and the maxillofacial area. The course incorporates theoretical and practical training in focal dental diagnostics and dental clinical allergology in the diagnosis of clinically healthy and medically compromised patients, thus demonstrating the relationship between oral and general diseases, following modern European standards.
The course is taught in one semester - VII and includes 15 hours of lectures and 15 hours of practical exercises.

3. The course in "Oral Pathology (diagnostics)" provides knowledge and competencies for diagnosis and treatment of pathological alterations and conditions with orofacial manifestations. Students acquire knowledge of the pathogenesis, clinical characteristics, treatment and prognosis of diseases in the oral and maxillofacial area. The course in Oral Pathology (Diagnostics) provides a holistic perspective on the patient's health, defining it as clinically sound or medically compromised, focusing on the manifestations of common diseases in the oral cavity and their etiology and pathogenesis. It specifies the causes of various diseases, their development, severity, course, and outcome. Since Oral Pathology is a basis for differential diagnosis, it is detrimental for correct diagnosis and therapy.
The course is taught in one semester - VI and includes 15 hours of lectures and 15 hours of practical exercises.
