Diagnostic information directly influences clinical decisions. Accurate data lead to better treatment-planning decisions and potentially more predictable outcomes. CBCT is an emerging technology that can offer you relevant information that cannot be gathered from conventional radiography. The ability to assess an area of interest in 3 dimensions eliminates the superimposition that is inherent in conventional radiographic imaging. Cone-beam technology currently has numerous applications in endodontics. CBCT is having great impact and is dramatically changing case diagnosis, treatment planning, and treatment outcomes in the daily practice of endodontics.

This presentation is designed to demonstrate the advantages and applications of cone beam scanning for the purposes of leveraging this information during endodontic clinical treatment.
