CBCT – cone beam computed tomography - has become increasingly important in treatment planning and diagnosis in implant dentistry, endodontics and orthodontics. Aimed at all members of the dental team, this lecture discusses the wider advantages of CBCT and the ability to achieve high quality 3D images with the radiation dose equivalent to a 2D X-ray. This means the world of CBCT can be opened to all treatments and not just the more advanced ones. It brings positive benefits for dose sensitive clinical cases and business benefits such as reduced treatment planning delays and increased referrals.
