Background: Implantology is a fast growing area in dentistry. One of the most common issues encountered in dentalimplantation procedures is the lack of adequate preoperative planning. Conventional radiography may not be ableto assess the true regional three-dimensional anatomical presentation. Multi Slice Computed Tomography providesdata in 3-dimentional format offering information on craniofacial anatomy for diagnosis; this technology enables thevirtual placement of implant in a 3-Dimensional model of the patient jaw (dental planning).Patients, Material and Methods: The sample consisted of (72) Iraqi patients indicated for dental implant (34 male and38 female), age range between (20-70) years old. They were examined during a time period started from December2012 to April 2013. All the patients who subjected to implant treatment depending on the pre-operative panoramicradiograph were referred Al-Kharkh General hospital, spiral CT scan Department, for postsurgical assessmentevaluate the angulation of fixture in relation to the angulation of bone in coronal and sagittal sections by usingMulti-Detector Computed Tomography.Results: The present study showed that the angulation of implant affected by age, sector, and tooth position in thesame jaw, and not affected by gender.Conclusion: Multi-Slice Computed Tomography provides a great understanding about bone angulation, it necessaryas a diagnostic tool for treatment planning pre and post-operatively
