The cone beam CT scanner gives our oral and maxillofacial practice state-of-the-art technology to help Dr. Spendal diagnose potential issues more accurately and provide treatment with unprecedented confidence. Unlike a traditional spiral CT scanner, this 3D system utilizes cone beam CT technology and provides precise, crystal-clear digital images while minimizing your exposure to radiation.
Our Green CT from Vatech enables us to perform a wider range of diagnoses and treatments in our office, helping to reduce multiple visits. The scanner allows us to choose the field of view, or scanning area, that best suits your specific treatment needs. This helps to limit your radiation exposure because we are focusing specifically on your area of concern.
The Green CT is one of the few scanners that is “FDA Cleared For Use On Children”. The Green CT scanner acquires an image in under 6 seconds. Imagine a child having to sit absolutely still for 20~30 seconds at a time, this is difficult for a child and adult alike. The only solution is to take less time for a scan. Less time taken on the scan will do wonders for children as this will greatly increase the comfort of the scan session, reducing retakes and as a result minimizing X-ray radiation exposure to children.
The Green CT system brings the latest 3D technology to Hillsboro Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, providing unmatched visualization of anatomical detail which aids in treatment planning and helps us to better explain the particulars of your case, as well as address any questions you may have. Dr. Spendal can use this innovative technology to quickly and easily share 3D images of the area of concern with your referring doctor – allowing the doctors to collaborate on your care, improving your experience, and delivering a positive treatment outcome.
