Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) is a diagnostic imaging modality that provides high-quality, accurate threedimensional (3D) representations of the osseous elements of the maxillofacial skeleton. CBCT systems are available that provide small field of view images at low dose with sufficient spatial resolution for applications in endodontic diagnosis, treatment guidance, and posttreatment evaluation. This article provides a literature review and pictorial demonstration of CBCT as an imaging adjunct for endodontics.
All of our e-learning courses are included in our Individual Subscription memberships.
On completion of this module you will be able to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of CBCT in endodontics.
