ConeBeam CT Scan

Conebeam CT provides high resolution, volumetric images that provide complete three-dimensional views of critical anatomy for more thorough analysis of bone structure and tooth orientation. Cone beam CT delivers accurate scans with images comparable to medical CTs with a much lower radiation dose, in-chair patient positioning (as opposed to a tunnel) and quicker scan times. Unlike a traditional CT, conebeam CT makes use of “spatial resolution” to capture hard bone images rather than using “contrast resolution” to capture soft tissue images by utilizing a cone-beam x-ray source as opposed to a fan beam radiation source.

Cone beam CT is different from typical dental X-rays that focus on a small area to produce flat, 2-D pictures. 3-D cone beam images provide more complete, accurate, and visual images to study your case, with greater accuracy and less radiation than ordinary medical CT machines. 3-D cone beam images can be duplicated and are always stored in case they are needed in the future.
