Computed Tomography is similar to a CT scan in a medical situation. It uses x-ray technology to obtain cross sectional images that are much more detailed than regular x-rays. CBCT is not limited to viewing bone. With this technology, soft tissue, muscles, and blood vessels may also be seen clearly. The cone beam is faster version of a medical CT scan. It uses a cone-shaped x-ray to minimize radiation exposure and takes less time than a traditional scan. Under normal conditions, a CBCT takes less than one minute and offers up to one hundred times less radiation dosage than a regular CT scan.
