  • Abstract

    Cone-beam computerized tomography (CBCT) was developed in the 1990s as an evolutionary process resulting from the demand for three-dimensional (3D) information obtained by conventional CT scans. CBCT was introduced to the dental field to replace the expensive and high-radiation producing medical CT scans. It is found that CBCT scans were more accurate than CT scans. CBCT has a lower dose of radiation, minimal metal artifacts, reduced costs, easier accessibility, and easier handling than multislice CT; however, the latter is still considered a better choice for the analysis of bone density using a Hounsfield unit scale. CBCT reduces the overall exposure to radiation. CBCT is a new technique for maxillofacial imaging. The examination time is shorter and the patient dose is lower than that with conventional CT.
