Multidetector row CT (MDCT) offers superior soft tissue characterization and is useful for diagnosis of odontogenic and nonodontogenic cysts and tumors, fibro-osseous lesions, inflammatory, malignancy, metastatic lesions, developmental abnormalities, and maxillofacial trauma. The rapid advances in MDCT technology, including perfusion CT, dual-energy CT, and texture analysis, will be an integrated anatomic and functional high-resolution scan, which will help in diagnosis of maxillofacial lesions and overall patient care.
