FDA Gives Advice on Dental Cone-Beam CT Safety

Posted on

A new webpage has been released by the Food and Drug Administration that advises proper usage of Dental Cone-beam Computed Tomography.  The page was necessitated because of the low levels of radiation emitted by such devices.  Kids are at greater risk from radiation, and although the levels are lower than those of CT exams, they are higher than your average x-ray test.  The page aims to help dental professionals determine if a test is necessary and how to properly use the device.
