Cone Beam Computed Tomography is an advanced digital recording technique that allows the operator to generate multiplanar "slices" and to reconstruct a 3D image of the target area using rotating conical X-ray through a series of mathematical algorithms (Figure 1).
Optical coherence tomography (OCT), including spectral-domain OCT (SD-OCT) and swept-source OCT (SS-OCT), can yield depth-resolved evaluation of reflectance data, together with a volume of three-dimensional information.
Another milestone was the development of the first computed tomography (CT) device by Godfrey Newbold Houns-field in 1967.
Computed tomography uses X-ray for obtaining large number of 2D scans that arise during rotation of part for 360 degrees, which are later used for rendering real 3D model of measured part.
