Normal head, cone beam CT scan. Front view of a dental patient's head. The scan was produced using a cone beam x-ray computed tomography (CT) scanner. Cone beam CT scanners are much faster and use lower doses of radiation compared with conventional CT scanners. The x-ray data is converted by computer into a model that can be animated in three dimensions.
