Europe Market Report for Cone Beam Computed Tomography Scanners 2017 - MedCore
The market for cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scanners has been present in Europe since the early 2000s. CBCT scanners operate with an X-ray scanner that is mounted on a rotating arm that circles a patient’s head. As it rotates, the scanner uses a cone shaped X-ray beam that is projected through the patient and onto the imaging sensor. This enables a three-dimensional reconstruction of the bone structure of the patient’s face and jaw.
