20) However, an analysis made with CBCT images would not be interpreted in this way, since the bifurcation may be visualized in different spatial planes (axial, coronal or sagittal) and also in transaxial or oblique slices formed from an outline of the axial cut and subsequent transversal cuts, such as those performed in this study.
