Benefits and limitations of Cone-Beam Computed Tomography in Clinical Practice
The planned webinar will provide information on effective doses to human beings derived from CBCT in comparison with other diagnostic imaging procedures based on X-rays as well as potential risks from such exposure to ionising radiation. The necessity of reporting full CBCT volumes will be underlined.
Cone-Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) is a relatively new method of diagnostic imaging applied among others in clinical practice in dentistry. Although introduced only in the end of the 1990’s, the CBCT technology has quickly developed and became available for general dentists. Despite its popularity it cannot yet be treated as a gold-standard, and justified referral policy must be carried out according with the guidelines and diagnostic imaging algorithms. The aim of the presentation is to discuss evidence-based indications for CBCT in dental practice – both general and specialised. In the lecture there will be demonstrated limitations of CBCT in clinical practice such as dental caries imaging and diagnosis of soft tissue lesions. There will be provided information on effective doses to human beings derived from CBCT in comparison with other diagnostic imaging procedures based on X-rays as well as potential risks from such exposure to ionising radiation. The necessity of reporting full CBCT volumes will be underlined.
- To identify evidence-based indications for Cone-Beam Computed Tomography in dental practice
- To demonstrate limitations of CBCT in clinical practice
- To understand potential risk related to exposure to ionising radiation derived from CBCT

Greetings from South Africa and Estonia!
Good night frome Vietnam
How to substitute such expensive cbct machine in clinical practice? Is any research is going on ? Thanks
Excuse me, I’d like to ask a question: in your opinion, should CBCT be regarded as a mandatory radiographic modality in planning a surgical extraction of impacted third mandibular molar? Because I’ve learnt that there’re a high percentage of mandibular canal injuries related to it. Thank you.
How much estimated expenses are there for setting up a CBCT Scanner in the clinic?
What would be the next best option to cbct?
Enjoyed your lecture. Very informative
Thanks for sharing
Amazing presentation!! thank you from Chile
What a great lecture!
Than k you so much! Excellent lecture!
Thank you so much for very interesting lecture! What is the position statement of using lead shielding (thyroid collar and lead apron or lap apron) regarding performing CBCT scans?
Good day everyone
Can a reduction in radiation dose be achieved by using the lowest exposure settings and close collimation, and does this reduce the quality?
Good morning from Edmonton ??
Hello from India
