CT Cone Beam Technology
Computed tomography (CT) is an imaging method employing tomography where digital geometry processing is used to generate a three-dimensional image of the internal aspect of an object, from a large series of two-dimensional x-ray images taken around a single axis of rotation.
CT has become an important tool in dental imaging to supplement digital x-rays. It is now the gold standard in the diagnosis of a large number of different disease entities.
The information gathered in such a scan dramatically increases diagnostic sensitivity, reducing the need for invasive investigation, as well as providing vital information on the anatomy of the roots, root canals and surrounding tissues for treatment planning.
