|The current emerging standard of
care in dentistry and dental implantology is the use of three dimensional
x-ray studies. The 3-D images allow the doctor to collect the needed and
highly valuable diagnostic information so they can best plan and deliver
dental and surgical care.
||I-CAT Cone Beam 3D Imaging provides three-dimensional
imaging to the dental community, right in the practice office. The system
offers active sagittal, coronal, and axial viewing and manipulation. It
enhances diagnosis and treatment planning by providing more accurate imaging.
Using the 3-D mapping tool, dental professionals can easily format and
select desired slices for immediate viewing. Cone Beam imaging delivers
quicker and easier image acquisition a typical scan takes only 20 seconds.
The patient benefits from less radiation as well as the comfortable,
open environment. Aside from the physical comfort of this system, the doctor
can share a visual diagnosis with patients, making them more comfortable
with their treatment plan and actively participate in their care. The speed
of the scan and the immediate results allows the doctor and patient to
better communicate the aspects of a case.
Benefits of Using the i-CAT Compared to traditional CT scans:
The i-CAT is fully open and has a short image capture time. Scan images
are ready for use in less than 3 minutes and can be emailed, placed on
a CD, or printed in full color for your use by the general dentist.
Offers advanced imaging within the practice
Allows doctors to visualize anatomy that can not be diagnosed extternally
or in 2 dimensional images.
Safer - delivers less radiation to the patient than traditional CCT scans.
Open environment ensures patient comfort.
Thorough diagnostic information (optimum view of the critical anaatomy
of all oral and maxillofacial structures.)
More accurate treatment planning - confirm certain treatments aree necessary.
More predictable treatment outcomes.
Reduces the length and cost of therapy
Delivers quicker and easier image acquisition - typical scan takees only
The diagnostic images from the i-CAT scanner can be easily converted
into a third party software (i.e. Simplant, Nobel guide, Dolphin, etc.)
for pre-surgical evaluation and computer guided surgery. The doctor will
receive a viewable animation to help him measure and analyze your case
from every aspect. The data can also be used to fabricate your surgical
