Cone Beam Computed Tomography: A Clinician’s Guide to 3D Imaging

by Prashant P Jaju

The Cone Beam Computed Tomography A Clinician’s Guide to 3D Imaging depicts a clear understanding of the comparative capabilities and limitations of cone beam imaging in detecting disease as well as monitoring disease progression or healing. The capability of cone beam computed tomography, CBCT system to obtain all the data necessary to reconstruct a whole volume allows to realize an unsophisticated hardware system composed by a C-arm with a low power X-ray source and a X-ray imaging detector. For varied conditions, such as periapical lesions, impactions, cysts and tumors, sinus disease, fractures, or lesions of the temporomandibular joint, CBCT offers many diagnostic advantages compared to conventional imaging. Cross-sectional imaging, surface renderings, maximum intensity imaging, and other display modes all have important roles in visualizing disease and abnormalities. This book describes various means to improve the imaging technique including when to limit the field of view, both to reduce patient exposure and to improve image contrast.
