CBCT a novel imaging technique in dentistry – A recent update

Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) has gained its importance in the last few years and has been widely employed in dentomaxillofacial imaging. This technique provides relatively high isotropic spatial resolution of osseous structures with a reduced radiation dose compared with conventional CT scans. CBCT offers numerous advantages compared to traditional 2D radiography not just in terms of avoiding superimposition but also with its application in multiplanar reformation and face scan marking horizons in real time imaging. This article explores the possible applications of this novel CBCT technology and the ongoing research in the areas, with the goal of applying CBCT data in an evidence-based manner.
