Detailed 3D imaging that enables accurate diagnosis and treatment planning.
Veterinary CBCT Imaging
Veterinary CBCT imaging technology is a type of X-ray imaging that offers a detailed, three-dimensional view of the area of interest. While it is commonly used in dental medicine for humans, especially for implant planning, oral surgeries, and orthodontic assessments, it has also found its way into veterinary medicine.
In veterinary medicine, Veterinary CBCT Imaging has been particularly beneficial for:
Dental and maxillofacial imaging: Given its origins in dental imaging, CBCT excels at producing detailed images of teeth, roots, and surrounding structures in animals.
Ear, nose, and throat assessments: For conditions involving the animal’s sinuses or ear canals, CBCT can provide clear images to guide diagnosis and treatment.
Orthopedic evaluations: Joint issues, fractures, and other skeletal problems can be visualized in detail.
Veterinary CBCT Imaging provides several benefits for the diagnosis and treatment of animals:
High-resolution 3D images: CBCT offers detailed 3D reconstructions, which can be immensely useful for various diagnostic purposes, from dental issues to more complex skeletal problems.
Quick scan time: Compared to traditional CT scans, CBCT can often acquire the needed images in less time, reducing the amount of anesthesia or sedation required for the animal.
Less radiation: CBCT usually exposes the patient to a lower dose of radiation compared to traditional CT scans.
Compact size: CBCT machines tend to be smaller and more portable than conventional CT machines, making them more accessible for various veterinary settings, including smaller clinics.
Focused imaging: The field of view with CBCT can be adjusted to focus on a specific area, which is especially useful for localized diagnostics, such as dental assessments or evaluating specific joints.
