Cone Beam Computed Tomography

CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) had been introduced in Europe way back in 1996 and in the USA in the early 2000s. It has, since then, been a revolutionary invention that changed the world's dental radiology panorama. In the past couple of years, it has made its advent in the Indian market. With its various benefits for both dentists and patients, CBCT has been quite gripped the diagnostic beat in Kolkata. CBCT has become a part and parcel of dentistry and has thus, significantly improved quality and excellence of dental treatment.

CBCT is a faster and safer version of conventional CT scan. The use of a cone-shaped x ray beam and size of scanner, the radiation time and dose to the patient is considerably reduced. The time required is typically less than a minute and the radiation dose is about 75-90% lower than conventional CT scan.

The other advantages of CBCT and the rationale behind using it for dental treatment planning are :

1. 3D rendering with impeccable clarity (resolution) and stunning details of anatomy and pathosis
2. High image resolution and sharpness (voxel size - 90-500 m)
3. Intelligent and intuitive software for viewing and reconstruction
4. Enhancement of communication with patients and referring doctors
