The i-CAT™ provides complete views of all oral and maxillofacial structures in an easy to use, cost effective, in-office system that allows Dr. Ladman to dramatically enhance his patient care in a variety of ways.
I-CAT features an open environment seated position, a typical scan time of only 20 seconds or less, and significantly lower radiation doses compared to traditional CT scans. The result is a dramatic increase in patient comfort. In addition, the immediate three-dimensional reconstruction of a patient’s mouth, face, and jaw areas enhances doctor/patient communication by allowing Dr. Ladman to share a visual diagnosis with his patients. This gives patients a better understanding of their treatment options and more confidence when going into treatment.
The i-CAT’s high-definition, advanced imaging technology can be used by a variety of other specialists, including orthodontists, periodontists and general dentists. With a unique 3-D mapping tool, Dr. Ladman is able to format and select desired tooth slices for immediate viewing and further analysis. The 3-D reconstruction gives him the opportunity to more thoroughly analyze bone structure, tooth orientation, joint space, and detect and evaluate deformities and pathologies.
