Cross-sectional images eliminate the problems encountered in radiograph interpretation that are caused by superimposition of the complex anatomy of the skull.
Uses x-ray technology so the gray shades within the images represent variations in tissue density making it an excellent modality for the evaluation of osseous and dental tissues.
Most commonly used when dental abnormalities are complicated by secondary disease such as osteomyelitis or sinusitis, granuloma or cementoma formation, or osseous deformation.
Used to identify abnormalities that are sufficiently subtle to be unidentifiable by more routinely available techniques such as radiography.
