One of the most precise cone beam 3D computed tomography scanner

The most advanced technologies. It is one of the priorities of Kaunas Implantology Center.

Computed tomography with the most modern i-CAT FLX scanner is possible in Kaunas Implantology Center since the beginning of 2016.

i-CAT FLX is one of a few such high level cone beam 3D imaging systems in Europe and one of the most precise imaging systems all over the world.

3D imaging at a dose lower than a 2D Panoramic X-ray with Quick Scan+(1)

i-CAT FLX Cone Beam 3D system, designed to provide greater flexibility in scanning, planning, and treatment.

Full dentition 3D imaging could be done at a dose lower than a 2D Panoramic X-ray with Quick Scan+ (11  µSv(1) instead of 15-24  µSv, that is a doze of standard 2D Panoramic X-ray (1)). Quick Scan+ cuts dose scan time to just 4.8 seconds.

i-CAT computed tomography scanner 6 years in a row has been voted for the “Best of Class” technology award for the highest resolution with the minimal radiation dose.

i-CAT FLX was recognized as a winner in the very competitive imaging category, by addressing an issue of great importance to the lowering radiation dosage to the patient.

The i-CAT FLX combines this with the other important aspect of 3D imaging — image quality. Practices dedicated to implants, restorations, oral and maxillofacial surgery, orthodontics, TMD, and airway disorders can all benefit from the flexible 3D scans.

i-CAT produces high definition 3D diagnostic images for
ultimate treatment efficiency.

Why i-CAT 3D computed tomography scanner, that is used at Kaunas Implantology Centre?

Full dentition 3D imaging could be done at a dose lower than a 2D Panoramic X-ray withQuick Scan+ (1).

I-CAT allows to reconstruct the 3D anatomy of a patient with the highest precision, as i-CAT FLX is the most precise cone beam computed tomography scanner in the world (2). This is why implantations, extractions, endodontic or orthodontic treatment or any other dental procedures could be done with the highest precision possible. The information from 3D imaging are used by general dentists, doctors orthopedists, doctors endodontists, doctors orthodontists, dental surgeons and other specialists for the precise evaluation of the patient’s situation for the most efficient treatment plan or during the treatment.

The most precise diagnoses with the lowest radiation doze could be made, as i-CAT FLX has the best radiation dose to contrast ratio of available computed tomography scanners in the world (3);

There is a possibility to scan the whole head at once. i-CAT 3D scan shall provide all valuable medical information for dentist, doctor orthopedist, doctor endodontist, doctor orthodontist oral and maxillofacial surgeon, otorhinolaryngologist and other specialists; With the assistance of i-CAT, clinicians can identify a plan for an effective course of treatment for a wide range of advanced procedures.

i-CAT has unique, widely adjustable 3D fields-of-view through collimation. Customizable diameters and heights allow to select views from single-arch, to both arches, the condyles, and up to a full cephalometric height, for the most flexibility in treating each patient according to their individual needs. The patient will get a minimum radiation dose every time.

The most advanced software allows to measure the volume of airways, predict and visualize the form and visual changes of a patients face after surgery or orthodontic treatment, predict the occlusion of teeth and many other important features for the patient.

General practise dentists, orthopedists, endodontists and orthodontists as well as oral and maxillofacial surgeons

use 3D i-CAT computed tomography images as the most precise tool for diagnostics.
