Blending innovation with patient comfort, the i-CAT™ Cone Beam 3-D Imaging System produces immediate three-dimensional images of patients’ critical anatomy, typically in under one minute. The i-CAT™ provides complete views of all oral and maxillofacial structures in an easy to use, in-office system that allows Dr. Niles to dramatically enhance patient care in a variety of ways.
i-CAT™ features an open environment seated position, a typical scan time of only 8.9 seconds, and significantly lower radiation doses compared to traditional CT scans. The result is a dramatic increase in patient comfort. In addition, the immediate three- dimensional reconstruction of a patient’s mouth, face, and jaw areas enhances doctor/patient communication by allowing Dr. Niles to share a visual diagnosis with his patients. This gives patients a better understanding of their treatment options and more confidence when going into treatment.
With a unique 3-D mapping tool, Dr. Niles’ technicians are able to format and select desired tooth slices for immediate viewing and further analysis. The 3-D reconstruction gives Dr. Niles the opportunity to more thoroughly analyze bone structure, tooth orientation, joint space, and detect and evaluate deformities and pathologies, otherwise difficult or impossible with standard radiographic technology.
