For several years, 2D (i.e. periapical and panoramic images) have been the state-of-the-art imaging method assisting on the diagnosis and treatment planning in Implantology. As these are two-dimensional images, some areas might not be possible to evaluate clearly, due to overlapping of anatomical structures and geometric distortion. In the present, imaging guidelines focusing into the use CBCT imaging to overcome these problems are relevant to discuss. Implementing CBCT may benefit the field of Implantology as an additional diagnostic method to be used in complex cases, and in those cases in which traditional two-dimensional imaging techniques do not give clear answer. However, the clinical documentation of the diagnostic accuracy of CBCT within Implantology is yet to be disclosed – especially now, when guided implant rehabilitation is a reality. Further, the society gain from implementing CBCT in the decision-making and therapeutic process in relation to diagnosis and treatment planning is far from be defined. In other words, we need to clarify how the use of CBCT will affect treatment choice and (eventually) its outcome. In this lecture, we will discuss the state-of-art of using CBCT within Implantology, as well as the technical aspects of CBCT with could interfere with its proper use in the clinic
