Written for the clinician, Cone Beam Computed Tomography aims to help the reader understand how CBCT machines operate, perform advanced diagnosis using CT data, have a working knowledge of CBCT–related treatment planning for specific clinical tasks, and integrate these new technologies in daily practice.
This comprehensive text lays the foundation of CBCT technologies, explains how to interpret the data, recognize main pathologies, and utilize CBCT for diagnosis, treatment planning, and execution. Dr. Sarment first addresses technology and principles, radiobiologic risks, and CBCT for head and neck anatomy. The bulk of the text discusses diagnosis of pathologies and uses of CBCT technology in maxillofacial surgical planning, orthodontic and orthognathic planning, implant surgical site preparation, CAD/CAM surgical guidance, surgical navigation, endodontics airway measurements, and periodontal disease.

"As a hospital core trainee with rotations in maxillofacial surgery and dentistry; this book is a useful companion for providing guidance when determining the indications and uses of CBCT. The fact that it is a straightforward read combined with a fully evidence–based approach makes this text easy to recommend to surgical and dental colleagues within the primary and secondary sectors.” (British Dental Journal, 25 April 2014)
