Advantages of computed tomography in comparison with other methods of X-ray diagnostics:
First of all, with standard radiography or, for example, orthopantomography, the result is a single planar and summation image of the object, and with a CT scan, a three-dimensional object is completely scanned.
Any ordinary image is taken in real time and then remains a static flat image. It can be viewed on a negatoscope or in a visiograph program, but it is no longer possible to view the object from a different angle or in a different projection - for this you need to take a new picture.
In contrast, the three-dimensional reformat restored in the computer's memory is an exact copy of the entire scanned area and, even in the absence of the patient, the specialist can study any object of interest from any angle, from any side, in all planes and at any depth.
Layer-by-layer sections. If an ordinary radiograph is a summation image, in which all the parts arranged sequentially are superimposed on each other, then a computer tomogram is a section of the tissues of the object, with a thickness of fractions of a millimeter to several millimeters, drawn arbitrarily in a given place.
In the process of conducting an X-ray examination using any method of shooting, a certain projection distortion of the object in size or configuration inevitably occurs, which can lead to errors in the interpretation of the image. With computed tomography, the object is scanned almost "one to one", which eliminates this type of distortion in the process of reconstructing a three-dimensional image and obtaining a slice.
All X-ray equipment used in the Imatek-Dent dental clinic significantly reduces the radiation load on the patient.
3 D tamograph allows you to correctly and accurately position the implant, as well as check the quality of treatment in therapeutic dentistry and sinus-lifting operations.
