The radiation dose absorbed was also influenced by the irradiated area and its magnitude, the intensity and voltage of the tube current as well as the exposure time.
Results The most common indication for CBCT exam is the location of the included teeth, mainly in the included canines. Bone pathologies recorded 23 investigations, including 21 cysts, 2 odontoma. From these 21 cysts, it was found 15 dentigerous cyst and 6 odontogenic keratocyst.
