The radiology department is equipped with the latest technology in the world i.e. Digital radiography. This digital imaging system uses non-film solid state detectors to radiographic exposure. These digital radiographic images are then displayed across various departments on high definition monitors. Minimal radiation exposure and optimization of digital radiographs are one of the major advantages of digital radiography.
Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) at AIDM
The Altamash Institute of Dental Medicine boasts of the latest and state of the art imaging technologies in the current world of dentistry. Cone beam computed tomography (or CBCT) is a medical imaging technique consisting of X-ray computed tomography where the X-rays are divergent, forming a cone.
AIDM has been a premier pioneer facility for Dental Implants and education as well. CBCT has become increasingly important in treatment planning and diagnosis in implant dentistry as well. CBCT scanners are now finding many other uses in dentistry, such as in the fields of endodontics and orthodontics, as well, which are all one of the many specialty practices at AIDM.
With the use of CBCT at AIDM, visualization of a Dental Implant procedure or Orthodontic treatment has become even more convenient.
CBCT use in implantology
A dental cone beam scan offers invaluable information when it comes to the assessment and planning of surgical implants. The AAOMR also suggested cone-beam CT as the preferred method for presurgical assessment of dental implant sites.
CBCT use in orthodontics
As a 3D rendition, CBCT offers an undistorted view of the dentition that can be used to accurately visualize both erupted and non-erupted teeth, tooth root orientation and anomalous structures that conventional 2D radiography cannot.
