Abstract

In the field of dentistry, for accurate diagnosis and treatment, radiographic examination is plays a vital part. Imaging modalities have evolved over time, right from two-dimensional imaging including conventional film and digital image receptors to advanced three dimensional imaging including Computed tomography, Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Nuclear Imaging and others. Among the above CBCT has become a very important part of dental imaging and the basic knowledge of this imaging modality and its application is necessary for all the dentists. In this regard, this review provides insights into the various application of CBCT in Caries detection and Endodontics.
