Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) proposed as standard of care for dental implant treatment

In its 2010 position paper, the Academy of Osseointegration found that CBCT imaging represents the standard of care for dental implantology, stating,

“the advent of cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scan imaging techniques are rapidly increasing in popularity, not least due to the significantly lower effective dose of radiation, consistent with principles of good radiation practice. To this end, it has been proposed that CBCT now fulfills the requirements to be considered a standard of care in the diagnosis and planning of implant treatment.”
