CBCT: OUTSIDE THE ORAL CAVITY

This lecture will discuss information regarding the production of x-radiation, how radiation is measured, and how radiation affects the cells of the body. The amounts of radiation doses will be compared between traditional and CBCT imaging. Areas outside the oral cavity of interest to patients will be presented, including sinus issues, sleep apnea, carotid and tonsillar calcifications.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the ways in which x-radiation causes damage to the body tissues.
  • Compare the effective dose of CBCT imaging to common intraoral techniques.
  • List normal anatomic structures commonly seen in the axial, coronal and sagittal views.
