  • Development of future technologies and approaches to Orthodontics
  • Cone Beam Computed Tomography
  •    – Like conventional CT but various modifications are done to optimize them for craniofacial imaging
  •   – Reduced chamber volume just enough for head and neck
  •   – Real time feed back betn sensor and X ray source
  •   – Cone beam projection of x rays
  •  – Radiation exposure – 20%of conventional CT
