New 3D Scan Digital Imaging Services are now available at the Michigan Clinic for Facial Pain.
- Precise, cross-sectional slices of any desired location in the maxilla or mandible provide exact anatomical information, including dimensions and locations
- Cone-beam computerized tomography is the newest imaging technique for the maxillofacial region. This technique uses less radiation and is less time consuming than conventional tomography. The technology provides sagittal, coronal and axial views, which can be reconstructed in two-and three-dimensional layers. While there are no studies yet demonstrating the value of cone-beam technology in diagnosing internal derangement of the TMJ, it appears that this method may provide an accurate, cost-effective, and dose-effective diagnostic tool for the evaluation of osseous abnormalities of the TMJ
- Accurately measure bone and jaw deformities, assess bone lesions and changes of the jaw, and detect other pathologies, such as cysts, tumors, and disease.
