iCAT™ 3-D Imaging System
Patients today are better informed than ever and take a more active role in their health care. This breakthrough technology enables patients to better understand their treatment options.
What is it?
3-D Imaging is the new frontier for digital x-ray: designed specifically to visualize the head and jaws. It's the difference between viewing a photo of a patients head and going inside and taking a virtual tour!
Why is it better?
Conventional orthodontic x-rays have varying degrees of distortion and magnification error. The 3-D imaging system is 100% accurate with less radiation exposure! Compared to medical scanners, the iCAT™ imaging system is 10 times more accurate with 95% less radiation. Dental and medical professionals can easily share 3-D data using iCAT™ software.
What is it used for?
- Airway/sleep apnea assessments
- TMJ evaluations
- Precise location of impacted/extra teeth
- Evaluation for implant placement
- Treatment planning of surgical cases
While seated in an open, non-invasive environment, an 8-second scan produces multi-dimensional images in one minute.
