Using Cone Beam CT for Dental Implant Planning is widely considered the standard of care. This scan is convenient for the patient with its easy access, favorable upright positioning and brisk scan time, 18 seconds or less.
The CBCT scan offers a cache of Implant Planning data for much lower amount of radiation as compared to Medical CT. These scans allow for the ability to carefully plan implant positions and measure the height and width of the bone. The Anatomage viewer will allow for distance measurements, HU statistics for bone density and nerve mapping.
