The difference between 2D and 3D x-rays

3D x-ray devices used for the study of maxillofacial structures are equipped with a fixed-anode x-ray tube just like 2D devices.

The main difference is that in CBCT 3D units, the scanner emits a conical x-ray beam, while in traditional 2D x-ray machines, it is a triangular-shaped beam.
