We are pleased to announce the addition to our orthodontic office of a craniofacial imaging center called Brodsky Imaging. Our imaging center will provide low radiation three-dimensional Computerized Tomography (3-D CT) images to our orthodontic patients utilizing the overwhelmingly popular I-CAT Cone Beam CT scanner. This new and exciting technology will enable the doctors to obtain high definition, 3-D CT scans of our patients' maxilla and mandible. With one scan, lasting under 10 seconds, the doctor will be able to obtain all the necessary x-rays required for orthodontic treatment.
Because of the uniqueness of our I-CAT machine, we allow the surrounding dental and medical community to use our machine to create images for their patients. All scans are taken in a very patient-friendly atmosphere where the patient can be seated in an upright position similar to a standard panoramic procedure. We will provide the referring doctor with either a CD-ROM or printed copies of the data. This 3-D data can be utilized for:
- Dental implant planning
- Orthodontic/Surgical Studies
- Impacted teeth evaluations
- TMJ studies
- Bone grafting evaluations
- Sinus and Airway studies
- Oral path/reconstruction studies
- Endodontic studies
The level of radiation exposure with this technology (34-68 uSv) is much lower than your typical medical CT scan (1200-3300 uSv) or full mouth series x-rays (150 uSv).
For dentists interested in taking this technology a step further, Brodsky Imaging will help you navigate the world of computer-guided implant surgery. The CT scans we provide are easily imported into third party dental implant planning software such as: Nobel Guided Surgery™, Simplant™, and VIP/Implant Logic Systems™. The software listed allows you to precisely plan an implant case prior to surgery, avoiding regional anatomy, measuring bone width pre-operatively, order surgical drill guides and even generate a provisional or final prosthesis if desired.
Brodsky Imaging is excited and proud to provide the latest and most advanced craniofacial imaging for our patients as well as the local medical/dental community.
