Dental Care: 3D Imaging
This is a high tech cone beam scanner that provides exceptionally detailed 3 dimentional images with minimal radiation similar to a conventional dental x-ray series. This is about 1000th the radiation of a regular medical CT. The scanner provides the doctor with 3D imaging of the airway maxillary sinuses, nasal turbinates, temporomandibular joints, as well as dental and orofacial structures in the supine position. To our knowledge, there are only 3 such machines in Los Angeles, the other two institutionally located at UCLA and Loma Linda.
