CBCT Volume Processing: Analysis, Diagnostic quality, Challenges


Exploding clinical applications of CBCT data by various dental specialties are driving a demand for innovative image post processing, with advanced 3D computer graphic techniques, computer hardware and software advances and other innovations.  To provide for such a demand becomes more challenging as the data volume is increased and as the number of data providers (different CBCT machines) becomes wider. This presentation will provide a thorough approach to CBCT data analysis based on diagnostic needs, will address factors affecting diagnostic quality and discuss the various challenges of dealing with volume processing.
