Clinical recommendations regarding use of cone beam computed tomography in orthodontics. [corrected]. Position statement by the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology.
- Oral Surg Oral Med Oral Pathol Oral Radiol. 2013 Nov;116(5):661.
To summarize the potential benefits and risks of maxillofacial cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) use in orthodontic diagnosis, treatment and outcomes and to provide clinical guidance to dental practitioners.
This statement was developed by consensus agreement of a panel convened by the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology (AAOMR). The literature on the clinical efficacy of and radiation dose concepts associated with CBCT in all aspects of orthodontic practice was reviewed.
The panel concluded that the use of CBCT in orthodontic treatment should be justified on an individual basis, based on clinical presentation. This statement provides general recommendations, specific use selection recommendations, optimization protocols, and radiation-dose, risk-assessment strategies for CBCT imaging in orthodontic diagnosis, treatment and outcomes.
The AAOMR supports the safe use of CBCT in dentistry. This position statement is periodically revised to reflect new evidence and, without reapproval, becomes invalid after 5 years.
