AAOMR, AAE issue guidance for CBCT use in endodontics

From Dr. Bicuspid:
November 8, 2010 — The American Association of Endodontists (AAE) and the American Academy of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology (AAOMR) have jointly developed a position statement on the use of cone-beam CT (CBCT) in endodontics.

This document, which will be revised periodically to reflect new evidence, is intended to provide scientifically based guidance to clinicians regarding the use of cone-beam CT in endodontic treatment as an adjunct to planar imaging.

According to the AAE and AAOMR, this 3D imaging modality should only be used when the question for which imaging is required cannot be answered adequately by lower-dose conventional dental radiography or alternate imaging modalities.
