With time lapse, imaging modalities has been progressed to 3D imaging from the primitive 2D imaging structure like CBCT in the
field of dentistry. CBCT provides us with a 3D image and structural configuration of the disease process which helps us to provide a
precise understanding of the borders, degree of disease severity and their progress with their anatomical relations. The use of CBCT
in the field of dentistry has been proven and finds its applications in the medical field nowadays. However, the lack of knowledge and
availability has limited its usage and requires constant update for the clinicians. It is important to provide the clinician with a sound
database at the time of their training with regards to the use of CBCT and keep them updated with the newer advances to diagnostic
modality to make maximum use of it and reduce the patient discomfort or complications arising out of the same.
