Mount Hope Dental | i-CAT 3D Imaging in Mount Hope




i-CAT Cone Beam 3-D Dental Imaging System

The emerging standard of care in dentistry and dental implantology is the use of three dimensional x-ray studies. The 3-D images allow the doctor to collect the needed and highly valuable diagnostic information so they can best plan and deliver dental and surgical care.

i-CAT Cone Beam 3D Imaging provides three-dimensional imaging, right in the practice office. It enhances diagnosis and treatment planning by providing more accurate imaging that can be manipulated in all three planes of space. Using the 3-D mapping tool, the dentist can easily format and select desired slices for immediate viewing, which allows the doctor and patient to better communicate the aspects of a case.
