Case selection for cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) for dental purposes is primarily based on individual risk-benefit assessment, balancing between the long-term radiation risks of CBCT and its ultimate benefit for each individual patient. Based on the currently available literature, the expected ultimate benefit to the patient, as evaluated by the level of diagnostic efficacy of CBCT in dentistry, is yet unclear, and it is mainly limited to its technical and the diagnostic accuracy… CONTINUE READING
