The cone beam scanner is a tremendous tool for the diagnosis and treatment planning our surgical implant cases. We presently refer our cases to a local facility, even though we treat enough cases per month to cover the cost of an in-office scanner. I, too, am curious about the experiences of the members with in-office scanners. Is there a preferred manufacturer? Leasing vs. buying? Any maintenance or technical issues? Any thoughts on this?

HI, I am Oral & Maxillofacial Radiologist, currently working with CareStream CBCT (CS9300) and reporting CBCT.

Its a very good CBCT scanner and has a user friendly software. 

Cone Beam CT Scanner is an X-ray based imaging technique thatprovides fast and accurate visualization of bony anatomical structures in three dimensions. These are like a conventional medical CT scanbut is having higher resolution with fewer artifacts and scatter. 

10 questions autour du Cone Beam (CBCT)

Depuis peu, une nouvelle technique d’imagerie décrite comme révolutionnaire a fait son apparition : la tomographie volumique à faisceau conique ou « cone beam ». Elle permet l’acquisition numérisée des structures osseuses et la réalisation de coupes dans les trois dimensions. Elle offre une variété de reconstructions planes ou courbes en orientations coronale, sagittale, oblique, panoramique ainsi que des reconstructions tridimensionnelles tout en étant très économe en dose d’irradiation ce qui en fait le principal avantage comparé au scanner.

Cet article a pour but de répondre à 10 questions fréquentes sur le Cone Beam pour une prescription adéquate. C’est pourquoi ce travail se propose dans un premier temps d’expliquer le principe de fonctionnement des appareils utilisant cette technique, puis d’établir les intérêts et limites de celle-ci. Il s’agira ensuite de présenter les réelles indications de cet examen en dentisterie, ORL et maxillo-facial.
