Plainfield, IL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 06/19/2014 -- Plainfield DentalCare offers the latest in CT Scanning technology. Their CT Scan is a tool they use to get a clear picture of what is going on right beneath the gums and the overall state of the patient’s mouth. The CT Scan is a quick and painless procedure. The scanner essentially takes a three dimensional scan of the head, with sharpness focusing on teeth. The whole procedure takes approximately two minutes and the scanning is less than 20 seconds.
The scan gives the dentist an x-ray of what issues the patient may be suffering from and also helps the dentist to predict possible movement or trends in the patient’s mouth. As a result of this state-of-the-art technology, they can scan virtually every area of the human body. Our wide range of services includes but is not limited to:
Common imaging – Including brain, chest, abdomen, spine, sinuses and extremity imaging
CT Angiography – The study of certain arteries in the body
3D Imaging – To provide better detail of bones and other organs
Cardiac Scoring – The screening of coronary arteries to detect calcified plaque
Interventional Radiology – includes biopsies, abscess drainages, percutaneous drainages.
CT (Computerized Tomography) uses X-rays to create cross-sectional anatomy images of a patient, creating detailed image of the inside of the human body. When early CT scanners were introduced, the procedure was commonly referred to as a CAT (Computerized Axial Tomography) scan. This was because at the time, scanners could only create cross-sectional Axial images. Technology has improved to the point where the axial images are taken and reconstructed into different anatomical planes. By doing this, CAT is not limited to just Axial imaging, therefore, deleting Axial from the name.
