ENT diagnostic imaging using cone beam CT

Diagnostic imaging of the ear, nose and throat (ENT) area has traditionally been carried out with medical CT, MRI and standard radiography. Nowadays there is a transition towards using more cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) for certain diagnostic tasks in these areas. The successful introduction of a CBCT system for ENT applications, in addition to applications in the dental field where the method already plays a major role, is described here.
