Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT)
Our new Kodak 9000 3D is an extraoral imaging system that aids in the diagnosis and treatment of complex endodontic cases. The system’s advanced CMOS detector produces low-dose, high-resolution 3D CT images.
In the 3D mode, the Kodak’s 9000 3D’s unique localized field of view limits radiation while providing volumetric studies of small areas of the jaws and supporting structures. Reconstruction of the images using a voxel (VOlume piXEL) size of 0.076 mm results in high-resolution images for more accurate diagnoses and improved treatment planning.
Additional benefits of the Kodak 9000 3D include:
1.) Precise visualization of dental structures in their actual spatial representation. Displaying axial, coronal, sagittal, and cross-sectional images, the unit provides 3D reconstructions that accurately depict structures in their actual relationships to improve diagnosis.
2.) Radiation that is 243 times less radiation than a medical CT scan of the same area.
3.) Reconstructions of 3D images in under 40 seconds, with real-time viewing of the image as it is being recorded.
4.) Ability to print, transfer image data via optical media (CD) for viewing with an imbedded viewing applet or send screen “snapshots” of significant findings by email.
Dr. Beller is committed to the highest level of clinical care possible and are certain that the revolutionary Cone Beam CT system will transform dental imaging in the same manner that CT scans have enhanced the medical profession.
