3D Mobile Imaging of the CSRA has introduced mobile NewTom Cone Beam 3D Imaging, a new mobile dental radiology service, in Georgia and South Carolina, which will allow patients to be scanned at the dentist’s office.
3D Mobile Imaging of the CSRA is said to be the only mobile NewTom Cone Beam 3D (CB3D) imaging unit in the area to offer CB3D service. The new service is an alternative to the traditional ‘brick and mortar’ dental imaging center and offers far less radiation than a medical CT scan.
3D Mobile Imaging is one of more than 24 different mobile imaging operations across the country utilizing NewTom Cone Beam 3D scanners, to deliver this service.
Arun Nayyar, a customer of 3D Mobile Imaging, said: “All of our Specialists and General Practitioners rely on the NewTom that 3D Mobile Imaging drives up to our multiple practice locations. Our patients appreciate the convenience, the prompt professional service and the expediency with which the reports are compiled and ready for our review. We have come to rely on the highest quality images that 3D Mobile Imaging’s NewTom VG provides. The information is a great adjunct to our diagnostic decision making.”
Capturing the maxillofacial region in a scan provides the dental physician with a 3-dimensional representation of the maxillofacial skeleton. The NewTom VG unit provides life-size, cross-sectional images of the mandible and maxilla to assess the quality and quantity of bone, and spatial orientation of critical anatomical structures for pre- and post-insertion of implant fixtures. Other applications include analysis for TMJ, Orthodontic, maxillofacial surgery as well as airway assessment essential for correcting obstructive sleep disorder.
The benefits of 3D Mobile Imaging and it’s NewTom VG apply to both patient and physician. On-site CB3D scans with immediate delivery to the doctor offer greater treatment acceptance and increased office efficiency, and prestige. The patient enjoys the ultimate in customer service, while getting a more accurate diagnosis and treatment plan for a more predictable outcome. Patients also will appreciate the continuity of care the practice provides including as little as 100 times less radiation when compared to a medical CT scan, said the company.
