Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) is a widely used imaging technology for medical diagnosis and interventions nowadays. Compared with conventional 2-D X-ray images, 3-D volumes reconstructed by CBCT provide cross sectional images and offer much better visualization of patients' anatomical struct...
