CE: CBCT Images and Early OSA Detection
Thomas M. Bilski, DDS
This CE article explains how CBCT imaging can aid in evaluating patients for disorders such as obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). CBCT imaging can be used to investigate the dimensions of upper airways, contributing to the diagnosis of possible upper-airway obstruction. As the author explains, CBCT imaging can provide the clinician with measurements and quantifying information regarding congenital dental agenesis, premature dental extraction, tongue position, mandible position, and relative hyoid position, information needed to diagnose OSA and other sleep disorders.
