About Book

In this updated second edition, I have used the term cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) instead of cone beam volumetric imaging (CBVI). I still believe that the more correct term for this modality is volumetric imaging. However, as most of my radiology colleagues have pointed out, the term CBCT is ensconced in the dental and medical literature, so I have decided, somewhat reluctantly, to adopt the term myself. In addition to the minor title change, I have added new cases to most chapters, developed a new section to address anatomy in the small volume, and added three new chapters to discuss applications for CBCT in endodontics, the risks and liabilities of CBCT, and selected cases from my radiology practice. I believe that these additions and updates have strengthened the book and made it even more useful.
I am smart enough to know my limitations, and in this edition, I have invited my first contributor, Dr Thomas McClammy*, a great endodontist and a great friend. He has written chapter 16 about the use of CBCT in the specialty of endodontics. As an early adopter, Dr McClammy did his due diligence, agonized over the decision to purchase a CBCT machine, and then plunged in. He has been like a kid in the proverbial candy store, and his enthusiasm about this modality comes through as he explains its incredible utility in his practice of endodontics.
