Launching Cone Beam CT Technology in Your Dental Office - Part 2

Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is one of the most significant advances in dental imaging. CBCT imaging provides accurate anatomic data and the ability to dynamically manipulate that data—viewing both anatomy and pathology from multiple perspectives.
