Cone beam ct scan
A CT (computed tomography) scan is a noninvasive medical test that uses special X-ray equipment to produce multiple images or pictures of the inside of the body and a computer to join them together in cross-sectional views of the area being studied. The Duo3D Plus systems gives our oral and maxillofacial practice state-of-the-art technology to help Dr. Lee and Dr. DeFelice diagnose potential issues more accurately and provide treatment with unprecedented confidence. Unlike a traditional spiral CT scanner, this 3D system utilizes cone beam CT technology and provides precise, crystal-clear digital images while minimizing your exposure to radiation.
Our new 3D system enables us to perform a wider range of diagnoses and treatments in our office, helping to reduce multiple visits. The Duo3D Plus scanner allows us to choose the field of view, or scanning area, that best suits your specific treatment needs. This helps to limit your radiation exposure because we are focusing specifically on your area of concern.
At Cumberland Surgical Arts and Associates, we use digital dental x-rays. Digital dental x-rays are an advanced option that has made dental x-rays even safer and more convenient. Digital x-rays uses even less radiation than traditional x-rays. Not only are digital x-rays safe, but they are also more time-efficient than traditional x-rays. Instead of developing the film in a dark room, the dentist sends the images to a computer, where they can be viewed on the screen, saved to a file, and printed out.
The Duo3D Plus system brings the latest 3D technology to Cumberland Surgical Arts, providing unmatched visualization of anatomical detail which aids in treatment planning and helps us to better explain the particulars of your case, as well as address any questions you may have. Dr. Lee, Dr. Lilly and Dr. DeFelice can use this innovative technology to quickly and easily share 3D images of the area of concern with your referring doctor – allowing the doctors to collaborate on your care, improving your experience, and delivering a positive treatment outcome.
