Author information

Park Avenue Periodontal Associates, New York, New York, USA.


This article describes the benefits and dental applications of a three-dimensional imaging technique known as cone beam volumetric tomography (CBVT). When compared to conventional medical CT scanners, CBVT is more accurate, requires less radiation, captures the maxilla and mandible in a single rotation of the X-ray source, and is cost-effective for patients. Here we describe the dental applications of CBVT and its advantages when placing dental implants.
