Abstract

Radiology is an essential part of diagnosis, treatment planning, monitoring and evaluating treatment efficacy. Radiographs should always be supported with a thorough patient history and examination. CBCT prescription should be based on prevalence of the condition, the progression rates of the disease and the diagnostic accuracy (sensitivity and specificity) of CBCT, and should be compared with conventional 2D radiographs, for the specific problem. In this article I have discussed the indications of CBCT in each speciality in dentistry and appraised the literature with current evidence.

Keywords: Radiation risk, CBCT, Dental imaging, 3D imaging.
