You may not expect to see a CAT scan machine in your dentist’s office; however, it is expected to become an important part of the way dentists diagnose patients in the future.
Forget the claustrophobic CAT scan-the Cone Beam 3-D Imaging System, or i-CAT, can take all of the images while you are sitting in an upright position. It produces immediate three-dimensional images, and this view can give your dentist or specialist a detailed look from any view, taking much of the guesswork out of the diagnosis.
Dentists are reporting that, with this technology, they have been able to diagnose instances of hidden pain with the i-CAT when standard MRI technology could not.
