Cone Beam CT 3-D Imaging

cone beam CT scannerUnlike a traditional spiral CT scanner, our new CBCT system  utilizes 3D diagnostic technology and provides precise, crystal-clear digital images. These scanners provide cutting edge technology to help Drs. Stopperich & Koutras diagnose potential issues more accurately and provide treatment with unprecedented confidence. Preset fields of view simplify the imaging process to more efficiently focus on each patient’s anatomical features. Our 3D scanner allows us to choose the field of view (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. Our CBCT system provide us with 3D treatment tools for ultimate treatment efficiency used in implant/restoration cases and oral and maxillofacial surgical procedures.

Our Carestream CS 9600 CBCT brings the most up-to-date technology to our practice, providing unmatched visualization of anatomical detail which aids in treatment planning and help us to better explain the particulars of your case and address any questions you might have. Dr. Stopperich & Koutras will use this innovative technology to quickly and easily share 3D images of the area of concern with your referring dentist allowing the doctors to collaborate on your care, improving your experience and delivering a positive treatment outcome.
