Cone Beam Scanner
Cone Beam technology provides a digital three dimensional view of the patient’s area of interest. A traditional x-ray is only two-dimensional. With cone beam scanners, the doctor is able to get a full 360 degree view of the potential surgical sites using less radiation than traditional medical CT technology. LICOMS surgeons are able to use this technology in virtual surgical planning, where the surgical plan is carried out prior to your procedure in a simulated computer program. It allows the surgeon to focus on the fine details of the surgery and can lead to more predictable outcomes. This new technology is fast, simple and painless, providing many wonderful benefits that were unavailable only a few years ago.
