CBCT imaging beyond imagination

Dental cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) was introduced about 25 years ago, and its introduction has assisted in revolutionising endodontic therapy. Apart from the fact that it holds an immense diagnostic potential in endodontics, it also allows for pre-treatment planning and image-guided endodontics. Overall, CBCT may offer affordable in-house 3D imaging with relatively low radiation dose. Yet, considering the more than 280 CBCT models available on the market worldwide, statements on CBCT cannot be generalised as there are  huge variations in technical characteristics, diagnostic performance and radiation doses, In the current lecture, an overview of 25 years of CBCT use in endodontic research and clinical applications will be given with a focus on the current state and future applications in endodontic diagnosis and therapy.
