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.
