Patient, if your ENT Specialist is sending you to traditional CT Scan, you can go research how much safer in term of radiation dosage if you are doing your ENT CBCT Studies instead of traditional CT.
An ENT CBCT scan will provide magnificent resolution while only using 20-40% of the radiation dose of conventional CT scanners, hence proving the CBCT image quality and its appropriateness over CT. The lower radiation dose in conjunction with the high diagnostic quality images provided by our equipment, is key to best clinical practice. In addition, CBCT’s low sensitivity to metallic artefacts makes it the technique of choice in the follow up of cochlear implants and ossicular prostheses post tympanoplasty surgery.
For paranasal studies, referring criteria include the search for anatomical variants prior to FESS, post FESS anatomy, mucosal inflammation, polyp grading, reactive bony sclerosis and drainage pathways.
For temporal bone studies, referring criteria include the search for anatomical variants, dysplasia, chronic otitis, deformity, trauma, pre- and post-cochlear implantation.
Paranasal and temporal bone CBCT images
Our ENT images have been presented to numerous international clinical congresses as state-of-the-art imaging. Titanium Dental Imaging also focuses on CBCT education in the ENT field.
