High-Resolution Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT)
Nima Dayani, DDS, MS
Endodontists rely on diagnostic radiographs to perform image-guided root canal treatments. The introduction of high resolution CBCT has improved periapical and panoramic radiography by allowing for three-dimensional evaluations of odontogenic and non-odontogenic lesions, internal morphology, fractures, resorptive lesions and anatomy prior to surgery. Advantages and disadvantages and findings from current literature of CBCT imaging will be discussed.
1. Learn the differences between high-resolution CBCT imaging, standard dental CBCTs, and medical CTs.
2. Gain understanding of volumetric analysis for detection of pathology.
3. Understand case selection criteria for focused field CBCT.
