Mastering the K7 & Scan Interpretation
INTERACTIVE ONLINE COURSE
Hands-On, Interactive Online Course
Designed for the New and Experienced K7 users and their entire Practice, Mastering the K7 and Scan Interpretation is an intensive Hands-on, online training course on how to best utilize the K7 for your TMD, Aesthetics, and Ortho cases.
This 2 day, 11 CE credit course is limited to 4 Participating offices to maximize the Hands-on experience and is taught by Scott Verzwyvelt, Myotronics’ Engineering Manager and an expert on the use of the K7, and Dr. Prabu Raman, long time K7 user, and President of ICCMO North America. Dr. Raman maintains a private practice in Kansas City dedicated to TMD, Neuromuscular Orthodontics & Aesthetics. You will learn how to record all pre and post TENS Scans and take an optimum bite with the K7. Dr. Raman will provide interpretation of the recorded K7 Scans, as well as present his own patient cases from start to finish.
The course will start off with a 3-hour lecture covering how to properly prepare the patient for a Neuromuscular workup, which includes cleaning the skin, positioning the electrodes, placement of the magnet, and alignment of the K7 Sensor Array. Each of the pre-TENS Scans (9, 9 light CO, 11, 2, 3, 6, & 13) will be discussed in detail, which include the theory and science behind each Scan, how to properly record each Scan, options available for each Scan, and how the Scans provide you a diagnostic picture of the patients.
This is followed by the Hands-on portion of the course where each doctor and their team members will work together. Each participant will choose a team member to hook up to the K7, making sure to follow the proper procedures they just learned. The instructor, Scott Verzwyvelt, Myotronics Engineering Manager, will work with each team to make sure they understand and record each Scan correctly.
After recording the pre-TENS Scans, the class will be instructed on how to properly hook up the J5 and start their team member TENSing. While the team member is TENSing, the instructor will cover in detail the post-TENS Scans (10, 5, 10 light CO). This will include the theory and science behind each Scan, how to record each Scan, options available for each Scan, and how to take a bite registration utilizing the K7 and J5.
The second day will focus on scan interpretation and diagnosis and treatment options. Prabu Raman, DDS, will provide both insights into how and why the Scans are recorded, along with interpretation of each Scan individually and as a whole. Practical tips for integrating the K7 into your practice will be discussed along with case acceptance and case completion. Dr. Raman will cover dental issues such as a retruded mandible, overclosed bite, and worn dentition.
