Cone Beam Cat Scan (CBCT)
Cone beam computed tomography, or CBCT provides oral health professionals with unprecedented three dimensional information about the hard tissues of the head and neck—including the teeth, jaw bones, and sinuses.
These structures can be viewed in any orientation with extreme accuracy and precision. Three-dimensional views can be sectioned in any plane to provide exceptional clarity for pinpoint diagnosis and treatment planning.
Situations in which CBCT might be suggested
Sometimes detection of disease processes or unusual anatomical structures is difficult, and CBCT can be of tremendous value. The amount of radiation exposure with CBCT is reduced as compared to a traditional CT scan, but is not trivial, so cone beam scans are typically used only when the risks of performing treatment without them are present.
