Musculoskeletal bone, Cone beam CT, Equipment, Trauma
R. Trueba; Buenos Aires/AR
some CBCT equipment has been developed that allows musculoskeletal images to be obtained apart from their already useful utility in dentistry.
Thanks to its relatively low irradiance compared to multidetector tomography (MDCT),
CBCT may have a new role in imaging.
Due to its high spatial resolution,
the CBCT allows to assess with great precision the presence or absence of fractures and to control their evolution.
It also generates very low artifacts to the metal,
being able to evaluate not only the hardware but also the bone lesions adjacent to it.
