Digital cone-beam computed tomography in Radiology

More and more radiology practices are using the added value provided by CBCT as a supplement to CT. The advantages of CBCT are better detailed images because of much smaller voxel sizes, lower slice thickness, minimal artifacts and lower radiation dosage. Radiology combines the areas of indications of ENT, plastic surgery, skull base surgery, ophthalmology, maxillofacial surgery, and dental applications. Due to its ability to capture a variety of image volumes (fields of view or FOV), it can be used in temporal bone diagnosis; providing high definition images of the superior semicircular canal dehiscence, otosclerosis, ossicular chain dislocation, cholesteatoma, as well as images suitable for navigation systems.
