MRI in DentoMaxilloFacial radiology


This workshop is designed to introduce dental and dental-dedicated MRI to its participants. It will be a primer focusing on a fundamental review of MRI physics and applications curated from the existing literature, followed by an anatomical review comparing the appearance of anatomical landmarks in MRI to those seen in 2D and 3D X-ray-based imaging. The workshop will also include case presentations comparing intraoral, panoramic, and CBCT results to dental and dental-dedicated MRI, elucidating differences in resulting images.

Lecturers: Rubens Spin-Neto & Donald Tyndall


How to write (and get published) a scientific paper in DMFR


The journal impact factor (JIF) of DMFR has held steady at 3.3 in 2023! This is particularly impressive at a time when most other journals within the medical field saw a significant decrease in their respective impact factor. In fact, DMFR has risen 14 spots in the radiology, nuclear medicine & medical imaging category (now 48th out of 135, compared with 62nd last year). It sits 30th out of 92 journals in the dentistry, oral surgery and medicine category and so is comfortably in the second quartile for both categories.

Thus, it should be the goal of all aspiring and established researchers in the field of DentoMaxilloFacial radiology to get published in DMFR.

But what kind of research is DMFR interested in? And how do you write a paper that has a high chance of getting accepted and published, even if the rejection rate of the journal is high? This lecture will present dos and don’ts of preparing, writing, and submitting your research with a special focus on DMFR.
