Objectives: To assess radiographic observers' ability to recognize patient movement during cone beam CT and to decide early termination of the examination. Methods: 100 patients were video-recorded during cone beam CT examination. Patients' videos were cropped twice: fitting the active 20-s examination time or the initial non-radiation 3 s of the examination. x- and y-coordinates of pre-defined points marked on the patient's face were used to define the reference standard for movement in the 20-s videos. A sample of 40 non-moving and 20 moving patients was selected. Eight observers scored the videos. The 3-s videos were scored: 0, the patient did not move; 1, the patient moved and the examination should be terminated. The 20-s videos were scored: 0, the patient did not move; 1, the patient moved. Re-assessment of 15% of the videos provided intra-observer reproducibility. The 20-s videos were compared with the reference standard providing sensitivity and specificity values (movement/non-movement recognition). The scores of the 3-s videos were compared with the scores of the 20-s videos. Results: Intra- and interobserver reproducibility ranged from substantial to almost perfect for both videos. The 20-s videos allowed patient movement recognition with a high specificity and a medium to high sensitivity. The 3-s videos allowed early termination of the examination with a small number of incorrect positive scores. The majority of the patients scored as moving in the 20-s videos were detected in the 3-s videos. Conclusions: By observing video recordings, trained observers are able to recognize patient movement during cone beam CT examination with high specificity and to decide an early termination of the examination.
