3 Dimensional CAT Scan Parma Ohio Provides Concise Detailed Radiographs of the Entire Head
As many of you are aware, these monthly newsletters are now available on our
website. They cover a whole host of different dental related issues.
They are designed to educate my patients and internet browsers on the latest and
greatest dental techniques, philosophies, and procedures. I am dedicated
to staying on the cutting edge of dentistry, and take at least 150 hours of
continuing education per year to achieve that goal.
On June 22, 2006 our office had a 3 dimensional CAT scan machine
installed. This state of the art x-ray machine has the ability to provide
concise detailed radiographs of the entire head. These digitally enhanced
radiographs allow the clinician to take 3 dimensional slices of any part of the
head. Because it is a computer enhanced digital image, the radiation dose
for these CAT scan images is similar to traditional panoramic images (full head
x-ray). Our office is one of the first in the state to offer this
technology, allowing us to provide the most concise detail oriented care.
These images are useful in the surgical placement of implants, the
visualization of the TMJ, the visualization of abscesses or tumors, along with
countless other orthodontic and orthognathic procedures. I encourage
interested patients to visit the companies website at www.imagingsciences.com
for more information on this exciting new technology.
