Interpretations of Cone Beam Computed Tomography
Dental volumetric tomography is the concept in which tissues of maxillofacial region are depicted using a cone beam shaped x-radiation to provide rapid accurate details. The salient advantages of cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) are shorter exposure time, reduced image distortion due to patient movements, decreased patient dose and multiplanar screening. CBCT aids the clinicians to localize the anatomic structures as a whole which can be visualized in three planes as in axial, coronal and sagittal sections. As a prerequisite for interpretation of every imaging mode, it is essential for the clinician to know the normal from the abnormal. This review highlights the essence to comprehend CBCT and interpret it in the accurate manner with minimal complications.
