Three-dimensional (3D) craniofacial imaging techniques are becoming increasingly popular and have opened new possibilities for orthodontic assessment, treatment, and follow-up. Recently, a new 3D cephalometric method based on spiral multi-slice (MS) computed tomography (CT) was developed and validated by our research group. This innovative 3D virtual approach is a bridge between conventional cephalometry and modern craniofacial imaging techniques and provides high-quality, accurate, and reliable quantitative 3D data. The aim of this article was to describe the advantages and the disadvantages of spiral MS-CT 3D cephalometry and to discuss the potential of cone-beam CT 3D cephalometry.
