Abstract

NEEDS AND DEEDS OF CBCT-AN ADVANCED IMAGING IN DENTISTRY

Jagathesh P, Christeffi Mabel R

CBCT is an advanced imaging technique that has proved to be a significant adjuvant in the diagnosis of oral and maxillofacial diseases and disorders and also in treatment planning. Since it’s commercial availability from the year 1999(the NEWTON DUT 9000 QR snl, verena, Italy) has been a boon in the field of dentistry for the dental practitioners. Ever since the advent of intraoral periapical radiograph in 1896,dental practitioners had relied on 2-D images for diagnosis and treatment planning. Panoromic radiographs in large has provided detailed information but with the disadvantage of magnification and distortion. CBCT imaging is an advancement in dental imaging providing a 3-D image which gives the external replica of the structures imaged without any magnification or distortion.
