CBCT




Cone Beam Computed Tomography also known as (CBCT) is a diagnostic imaging system that provides the Endodontist with high quality, and accurate three dimensional representations of the maxillofacial skeleton. 
Radiographic imagining in endodontics is important in the diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up of the patient.  The CBCT is performed by using a rotating gantry, providing a x-ray and detector which are fixed. Within a single rotation, the CBCT provides precise, immediate, and accurate 3-D radiographic images for the doctor, and the patient. The technology of the CBCT also allows the doctor an unparalleled visualization of the usually complex relationships between the teeth and their anatomic features, such as the maxillary sinus, the mandibular canal, and the foramen.







ADVANTAGES OF THE CBCT

    The single most important advantage the CBCT gives the doctor is anatomic features in three dimensions that panoramic and intraoral images cannot provide.  The CBCT data can also be reconstructed using a personal computer, thus allowing the data to be reoriented in its true spatial relationship. The basic advantages of using the CBCT in endodontics are:

*High-Resolution Images

*Less Radiation

*Improved Patient Care

*Comfortable Positioning
