Forensic radiology exists in a specific field of medical imaging technologies that are utilized to assist doctors. Radiology technology has increasingly been significantly advanced and developed. Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) is one of the forensic odontology for image analysis examinations. Through CBCT radiology, evolutionary forensic odontology has been developed extensively in many applications, such as the estimation of age through teeth, the role of dentists in trials or forensic witnesses, analysis of bite marks, investigation of trauma cases, and determination of sex and race. The advantages of digital CBCT radiographs include the speed at which radiographs are retrieved, radiograph displays visible directly on a computer screen, and the application of contrast, density, sharpness, image, and color adjustments available on the CBCT digital radiograph software. These help significantly in identification checks in forensic, especially in skeletal and odontology cases. This article discusses the use of CBCT in forensic odontology.
