Abstract Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) is an essential imaging method that increases the accuracy of diagnoses, planning and follow-up of endodontic complex cases. Image postprocessing and subsequent visualization relies on software for three-dimensional navigation, and application of indexation tools to provide clinically useful information according to a set of volumetric data. Image postprocessing has a crucial impact on diagnostic quality and various techniques have been employed on computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data sets. These include: multiplanar reformations (MPR), maximum intensity projection (MIP) and volume rendering (VR). A recent advance in 3D data visualization is the new cinematic rendering reconstruction method, a technique that generates photorealistic 3D images from conventional CT and MRI data. This review discusses the importance of CBCT cinematic rendering for clinical decision-making, teaching, and research in Endodontics, and a presents series of cases that illustrate the diagnostic value of 3D cinematic rendering in clinical care.
