Digital and 3D X-rays
In our office we use digital radiographs when they are needed for your care to diagnose and prevent problems. Dexis Digital x-rays have many benefits to you as a patient. They reduce exposure to radiation time and less waiting time in chair for x-ray development which leads to shorter appointments. The image is seen immediately therefore a better understanding of diagnosis and treatment is reached. Also, the cost of x-rays is decreased because developing is no longer needed. In conjunction with the Dexis Digital software we have implemented the use of NOMAD PRO x-ray handheld system. Patient benefit is extremely reduced radiation back-scatter. The NOMAD includes patient radiation shielding that when in operation virtually eliminates radiation leakage by the x-ray system.
When your care requires a more in depth look we have the ability to take a 3D x-ray that allows an in depth look at your bone structure and nerves to determine what treatment is best for you. The PlanMeca Promax has very little radiation exposure while still giving the images necessary for you treatment.
