CAT-Scans

Dear Doctor:

As we strive to improve our oral surgery practice and to take better care of our patients, we have invested in the Kodak 9000 3D extra oral imaging system.  This innovative unit provides a two-in-one solution with access to powerful, focused-field 3D images.  The anatomical detail and viewing capabilities of 3D imaging offer a wide range of diagnostic possibilities such as implant placement, surgical planning, extractions, examination of oral pathologies, and third molar evaluations. 

When you refer a patient to our practice, you can rest assured that your patient will receive the best possible service with the top technology on the market.  The Kodak 9000 3D system provides high-resolution images at 0.076 voxels, providing the details necessary to assist in diagnosis.  Additionally, the localized field reduces the irradiated surface, thus providing better protection for patients.  In fact, the average dose for a single 3D example performed with the Kodak 9000 3D system represents one to three days of natural daily exposure.  More significantly, it represents ten to thirty times less exposure than other dental cone beam CT systems.

Three-dimensional images from the Kodak 9000 3D system are generated in standard DICOM format for easy image sharing, should we need to collaborate on a case. 

We want you to know that what matters to us most is taking care of patients.  We feel that this new unit helps us significantly improve patient care.  We appreciate the trust you put in our practice and look forward to continuing our mutually beneficial relationship for many years to come.
