Background: Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) is a recent development that is especially useful in dental radiology (1). Compared with traditional CT, CBCT has a lower radiation dose, has higher resolution, and produces sharper images of teeth and other hard tissues but causes less soft tissue contrast. Cone-beam CT can show the anatomical structures of the base of the skull and the viscerocranium, notably the sella turcica, depending on the size of the acquisition field. This procedure was first introduced in the European market in 1998 and the U.S. market in 2001 and is becoming increasingly important for treatment planning and diagnosis in dentistry (2).
