  • Cone Beam Computed Tomography CBCT

    Cone Beam Computed Tomography CBCT:

    CAT scans have provided dentists around the world with pictures on the patient's anatomy so they can diagnose, plan and treat cases. This technology has allowed dentist provide better and more reliable service around the world.

    As new technologies arrive to different fields, they have also arrived to the field of dental implant imaging with the Cone Beam Computed Tomography - CBCT, which has been marking the cutting edge in dentistry imaging in America for the last ten years. CBCT implements revolutionary 3D Images and a stream of useful data that the doctor can reconstruct as in the form of images when needed, this feature is streamed information from the CBCT to a database referred to as DIACOM. Images in 3D are achieved thanks to the x-ray cone beam and the flat plate receptor which provide the ability to capture slides of the anatomy as information that will later be translated into an image.

    The x-ray cone beam delivers substantial less amount of radiation to the patient, giving it an extra advantage over its predecessor the fan beam ray used in CAT scans (patient receives about 150 mrem). This feature does not only help the patient, but also the dentist in assessing and treating the case in a more accurately way.

    One other important advantage of the Cone Beam Computed Tomography CBCT - is the high resolution images with axial, coronal and sagittal views making dental implant placing easy and safe.
