Course Description:

CBCT(Cone Beam Computed Tomography) has developed in the last years from a highly specialized used subject used mainly by specialized surgeons and implantologists to a wide field of indications, used mostly by general practitioners, periodontists, endodontists, general implantologists and orthodontists. The picture quality has increased drastically so the 3-D X-ray techniques are able to show aspects that 2-D X-ray-techniques are unable to present. 3-D X-ray systems are linked today to other diagnostic and electro-mechanical systems as there are automaticised software measure and diagnostic tools, intra and extra-oral scanning systems and CAD-CAM-milling-systems. That increases the diagnostic and treatment possibilities this systems offers to the users.

Learning Objectives:

  • Current indications of CBCT in the different dental fields.
  • - Differences between 2-D and 3-D Radiography on the same pathologic cases: what are the different systems able to show and what not.
  • - major technical differences between the actual CT and CBCT-systems and the influence of these aspects in picture quality and diagnostic possibilities.
  • - integration of CBCT in other systems: present possibilities and new systems in development: a outlook to the near future.
