Int Endod J. 2019 Aug;52(8):1138-1152. doi: 10.1111/iej.13115. Epub 2019 Apr 9.


The use of cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) in the diagnosis and/or management of endodontic problems is increasing and is reflected in the exponential rise in publications on this topic in the last two decades. The aim of this paper is to: (i) Review current literature on the endodontic applications of CBCT; (ii) Based on current evidence make recommendations for the use of CBCT in Endodontics; (iii) Highlight the areas in which more research is required.

Keywords: cone beam computed tomography; endodontic diagnosis; management of endodontic problems; radiography.
