Cone Beam CT is an imaging technique that can be used in various applications. Its development has also facilitated the improvement of computer-guided implantology. The examination lasts only a few seconds, requires the use of low doses of X-rays and is performed in a standing or sitting position.
What is it?
In order to deepen the study of the facial mass and dental arches for planning the implant procedures, the Zanardi Dental Centres use 3D technology.
“Cone beam” computed tomography uses X-rays to form a cone through which a large volume is examined with considerable reduction of radiation compared to conventional CT systems.
In addition to assessing the morpho-structural characteristics, height and thickness of the alveolar bone in dental implant sites, 3D technology is also widely used in oral and maxillofacial surgery, as well as endodontics and periodontics.
The more detailed image allows for rapid and accurate diagnosis, achieving more successful results. 3D Technology makes it possible to study the temporomandibular joints in three-dimensional mode, and allows more orthodontic information and anatomical details to be obtained compared to a normal skull x-ray.
Finally, the technology can also be useful in the field of otorhinolaryngology to study the facial mass and in particular the nasal passages and paranasal sinuses of children.
