Welcome from the Chair

MRONJ is still a condition with uncertain and controversial issues.

It is necessary for the international community to develop common diagnostic methods and strategies for the prevention and treatment of medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (MRONJ).

The aim of these two webinars is to provide an ample perspective on several debated aspects of MRONJ including risk estimates, disease definition and diagnostic pathway, individual risk assessment, and the fundamental role of imaging in the diagnosis, classification, and management of MRONJ.

Date: 24 November 2023 at 9.00 a.m. CET | 3:00 a.m. EST | 4:00 p.m. CST Asia
