Dental CT is often referenced as CBCT as a simplified in office tomograph for 3d, for in depth dental patient analysis. The information compared to OPT has advantages, however the radiation exposure makes us to justify the timing, quantity and quality.

Current standards, as ALARA, IRMER, SADENTEXCT do make suggestions, however every case is different. Risk assessment, understanding high risk cases and as part of the consent process the more data we have, the more likely we can make a better decision, perhaps.  Or this is what our advisors keep telling us. Following introduction of the known standards, though cases, the importance of CBCT will be demonstrated.

While often CT is performed for a single reason, it can open up a significant amount of new issues:

  • Exposure parameters
  • Who to do the scan? (surgical or restorative discipline), who is the 1st
  • Who should report or re-report, can we trust it ?
  • Depth and format of reporting
  • Predictability of the values in the grey zone
  • Interpretation on general and multidisciplinary, specialist, senior or expert level
  • Communication of findings and translation to action (direct and onward referrals)

In conclusion, the dental CT as a descriptive modality has changed the dental records, planning, ever more human input is required with more time to oversee many automatic processes. The strain of time, professional education, delegation in the business environment need to well considered. The lecture will help you to decide if a CT is the modality of choice for given cases though examples.
