What is the i-CAT Scanner?
At The Carmel Valley Center for Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, we strive to provide the highest standard of care to our patients by using the most innovative techniques and top-quality equipment. The i-CAT is one of the most advanced imaging devices our office uses to diagnose your facial and surgical needs.
How does the i-CAT Scanner work?
The i-CAT offers the highest-quality images and most complete information – with 0.01mm accuracy – on the anatomy of a patient’s mouth, face, and jaw areas. This precision leads to the most accurate diagnosis, treatment plan, and predictable outcomes for oral and facial surgical procedures. Additionally, i-CAT is less costly and uses significantly lower radiation doses than traditional, hospital-based CTs.
What are the advantages of using the i-CAT scanner?
Our patients love the i-CAT because of its convenience and comfort. Patients are seated in an “open environment,” increasing their comfort while capturing the natural orientation of the anatomy. Within a minute, the data is transferred to a computer and displayed on an interactive 3-D mapping tool that allows us to easily format and select desired regions for immediate viewing. These detailed images help Dr. Tawfilis diagnose medical problems earlier.
