The introduction of cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) and the increased awareness on the detrimental effects generated by sleep disordered breathing (SDB) has revived interest in studying the upper airway (UA). Nevertheless, despite the high number of publications studying UA based on CBCT scans, there is no standard procedure shared by all researchers in assessing UA morphology. In this chapter, an overview of the challenges and limitations related to the study of the upper airway will be presented.

Abstract

The introduction of cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) and the increased awareness on the detrimental effects generated by sleep disordered breathing (SDB) has revived interest in studying the upper airway (UA). Nevertheless, despite the high number of publications studying UA based on CBCT scans, there is no standard procedure shared by all researchers in assessing UA morphology. In this chapter, an overview of the challenges and limitations related to the study of the upper airway will be presented.
