A cone beam computed tomography (CT) scan is a medical imaging procedure that uses low-dose x-rays to produce 3D images of the internal organs and tissues of the body. The CT scanner consists of an x-ray tube that rotates around the patient's body, and a detector that records the x-rays as they pass through the body. The images are reconstructed using specialized software to create a 3D model of the inside of the body.
The cone beam CT scanner offers many advantages over traditional CT scanners. First, it uses a much lower radiation dose than a traditional CT scanner, making it safer for patients. Second, it produces high-quality 3D images in less time than traditional scanners. This makes it ideal for use in dental offices, where patients need to have multiple scans done in a short period of time.
