Projection radiography, developed over 100 years ago, has helped transform Dentistry into a sophisticated evidence-based healthcare profession. It has been an international collaboration of research that created the technology we now use. The topic discussed the history behind the technology and provides examples of its current endodontic applications. The dangers of ionizing radiation have pushed the science of imaging into new frontiers. Currently, CBCT is widely used in different areas in Endodontic fields including detect root and canal anatomy, resorption defects, preoperative and postsurgical applications and so on. Future applications will go beyond the imagination of the inventors.
- To understand the advantages and disadvantages between 2D and 3D dental imaging.
- To know the clinical applications of CBCT and the other new technologies in Endodontic
