What is CBCT?
CBCT stands for Cone Beam Computed Tomography or Cone Beam CT.
Cone beam CT is a tomographic scanning technology that can scan and acquire a specified volume of the patient's head and generate a 3D data set at much lower radiation doses than their medical CT counterparts.
Cone Beam CT represents the latest generation in medical imaging scanning machines ascending from conventional x-ray, to panoramic and cephalometric x-ray, to medical spiral CT. Cone Beam CT scanners have been used for diagnosis and treatment planning in diverse dental specialties such as maxillofacial surgery, implantology and oral pathology.
