How does a Standing CT scan work and is it safe?

A Standing CT uses Cone Beam CT (CBCT) to produce 3D images. The radiation dose is much lower than traditional CT scans as it uses a concentrated, low-power x-ray beam instead of a fan-shaped, high-output x-ray beam. It also allows both feet and ankles to be scanned at the same time, allowing the opposite side to act as a normal comparison without any significant additional radiation exposure.
