Cone Beam is a diagnostic imaging technology that evolved from CAT Scans in medicine. CAT Scans, or Computerized Axial Tomography, utilize a fan-shaped beam of radiation that rotates around the patient hundreds of times per second, with the patient being moved a precise distance in the scanner. Cone beam differs in that cone beam scans use a cone-shaped beam that is directed at a detector that rotates around the patient. Unlike CAT scans, cone beam 3D imaging can be applied in dentistry due to its smaller size and ten times less radiation than CAT Scans.
There are many advantages of using CONE BEAM 3-D Imaging technology:
