Now regarded as the standard of care for some applications in dentistry, cone beam volumetric imaging (CBVI) is profoundly influencing clinical decision making like no other imaging modality developed in the past century. Yet many practitioners remain uncertain about its range of applications, safety, and cost, as well as how and when to integrate it into their clinical practice. This sleek, full-color atlas addresses each of these topics in succinct fashion. The author, a practicing oral and maxillofacial radiologist, introduces readers to all of the various ways of viewing CBVI data sets and guides clinicians in identifying familiar anatomic landmarks in the three planes of section (axial, sagittal, and coronal). Comprehensive case presentations demonstrate the diagnostic and treatment-planning capabilities of CBVI in its full range of applications (eg, airway studies, implant site assessment, odontogenic lesion visualization, 1:1 space analysis) while at the same time highlighting situations in which traditional two-dimensional imaging will suffice. A must-read for students and practitioners at all levels and in all specialties of dentistry.
