Conventional computed tomography (CT) techniques employ a narrow array of x-ray detectors and a fan-shaped x-ray beam to rotate around the patient to produce images of thin sections of the patient. Large sections of the body are covered by moving the patient into the rotating x-ray detector and x-ray source gantry. Cone beam CT is an alternative technique using a large area detector and cone-shaped x-ray beam to produce 3D images of a thick section of the body with one full angle (360 degree or 180 degree plus detector coverage) rotation. It finds applications in situations where bulky, conventional CT systems would interfere with clinical procedures or cannot be integrated with the primary treatments or imaging systems. Cone Beam Computed Tomography explores the past, present, and future state of medical x-ray imaging while explaining how cone beam CT, with its superior spatial resolution and compact configuration, is used in clinical applications and animal research. The book: Supplies a detailed introduction to cone beam CT, covering basic principles and applications as well as advanced techniques Explores state-of-the-art research and future developments while examining the fundamental limitations of the technology Addresses issues related to implementation and system characteristics, including image quality, artifacts, radiation dose, and perception Reviews the historical development of medical x-ray imaging, from conventional CT techniques to volumetric 3D imaging Discusses the major components of cone beam CT: image acquisition, reconstruction, processing, and display A reference work for scientists, engineers, students, and imaging professionals, Cone Beam Computed Tomography provides a solid understanding of the theory and implementation of this revolutionary technology.

Since its introduction to dentistry, cone beam computedtomography (CBCT) has undergone a rapid evolution and considerableintegration into orthodontics. However, despite the increasingpopularity of CBCT and progress in applying it to clinicalorthodontics, the profession has lacked a cohesive, comprehensiveand objective reference that provides clinicians with thebackground needed to utilize this technology optimally for treatingtheir patients. Cone Beam Computed Tomography inOrthodontics provides timely, impartial, and state-of-the-artinformation on the indications and protocols for CBCT imaging inorthodontics, clinical insights gained from these images, andinnovations driven by these insights. As such, it is the mostcurrent and authoritative textbook on CBCT in orthodontics.Additionally, two DVDs include more than 15 hours of videopresentations on related subjects from the 39th Annual MoyersSymposium and 38th Annual International Conference on CraniofacialResearch. Cone Beam Computed Tomography in Orthodontics is organizedto progress sequentially through specific topics so as to build theknowledgebase logically in this important and rapidly evolvingfield. Part I provides the foundational information on CBCTtechnology, including radiation exposure and risks, and futureevolutions in computed tomography. Part II presents the Principlesand Protocols for CBCT Imaging in Orthodontics, focusing ondeveloping evidence-based criteria for CBCT imaging, themedico-legal implications of CBCT to the professional and theprotocols and integration of this technology in orthodonticpractice. Part III provides critical information on CBCT-basedDiagnosis and Treatment Planning that includes how to interpretCBCT scans, identify incidental pathologies and the possible otheruses of this technology. Part IV covers practical aspects ofCBCT’s Clinical Applications and Treatment Outcomes thatencompasses a range of topics, including root morphology andposition, treatment of impacted teeth, virtual surgical treatmentplanning and outcomes, and more.
