CBCT Image Quality

The quality of CBCT reconstructed images may be seriously jeopardized in the presence of metallic artifacts, thus impairing or even invalidating the diagnosis. The literature showed a significant variation of artifact expression amongst CBCT’s. Therefore, this project aims to qualitatively and quantitatively evaluate the performance of several CBCT’s in different diagnostics applications, by using an anthropomorphic phantom which allows the reproducibility of different clinical scenarios.
