3D Cone Beam CT Imaging
The i-CAT system gives our oral and maxillofacial practice state-of-the-art technology to help Dr. Khalil, Dr. Lin or Dr. Vu 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 i-CAT scanner image is taken while you are in a sitting down position, which allows for maximum stabilization and accurate information. Comparing to other cone beam CT’s when you are standing where stability can be a potential problem. The i-CAT 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.
The i-CAT system brings the latest 3D technology to Bayside Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, 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. Drs. Khalil, Lin or Vu 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.
