Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) systems dedicated for craniofacial imaging are now available from several manufacturers.
CBCT potentially provides opportunities for 3D cephalometrics in orthodontic assessment of bony landmarks and airbounded
surfaces such as the skin of the face. The purpose of this paper is to trace the history origins of CBCT and its eventual
commercialization for maxillofacial imaging.
