Application of Cone-Beam Computed Tomography in Dentistry



The American Dental Association Council on Scientific Affairs (CSA) promotes the safe use of cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) and appropriate professional justification of CBCT imaging procedures. As with other radiographic modalities, CBCT imaging should be used only after a review of the patient’s health and imaging history and the completion of a thorough clinical examination. Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT)/Digital Volumetric tomography(DVT) -specifically dedicated to imaging of the maxillofacial region. It created a revolution in maxillofacial imaging- the transition of dental diagnosis from 2D to 3D images expanding role of imaging from diagnosis to image guidance of operative and surgical procedures.CBCT- offers 3-D visualization & more complex & more accurate imaging compared to analog and digital radiographs\
