CBCT Scanner & Digital Panoramic Referrals
This section is for dental professionals only.
We welcome your Cone Beam CT and Digital Panoramic referrals to our practice. Rest assured we will provide the best care for your patients. We guarantee to return your patient to your ongoing care following completion of their scan.
We are pleased to introduce the state of the art Planmeca ProMax 3D Classic Cone Beam CT Scanner. You can obtain complete information on your patient’s anatomy in the minutest detail. This X-ray unit provides Digital Panoramic, Cone Beam CT imaging as well as 3D model and impression scans. It can capture a larger diagnostic area with a Single Rotation Scan without stitching.
Your patient will benefit by lower radiation dose.
We can use a variety of scan sizes
-5cm x 5cm (Small Field of View),
-5cm x 8cm (Maxilla or Mandible)
-8cm x8cm (Both Jaws)
Endodontic assessment uses a Small FOV (5cm x 5cm) and 100 micron voxel size. Implant survey is usually done at 5cm x 8cm or 8cm x 8cm FOV at 150 micron. If you plan to assess multiple implant sites or want to construct a surgical guide, we recommend that you do not request a small FOV (5cm x 5cm). Please contact us to discuss your specific requirements.
We are happy to offer a dual scan technique protocol without an additional charge for the patient. If the patients does not have a radiographic stent, we can add removable radiographic markers (chargeable to the patient) to an existing acrylic or flexible denture (Chrome cobalt denture will not be suitable for this). We can also scan an impression or model and provide you with a stl file.
Moreover, as you are surely aware there is a requirement that all Cone Beam CT scans are reported by a suitably trained person. Please indicate if you require a report upon the scan by our Consultant Radiologist (Medical history and relevant Dental History must be included on the referral request).
We will send your scan by email so please include a valid email address with your referral. Panoramic x-rays will be sent on JPEG format. Cone Beam CT scans will be delivered on an email link that also contains the romexis viewer software. You can naturally use the DICOM file on your own viewing software. We are happy to provide assistance with the romexis viewer if you require it.
