Cone Beam for the General Practitioner?




The above video was shot last June in Chicago at the 3rd International Congress on 3D Dental Imaging. Even though the video is almost a year old, I believe what I said still holds true. I've been involved with 3D imaging for a while now and I continue to be amazed at the things that I see which would not have been possible without this technology.

We had a new server installed last Friday which, among many other benefits, features almost 2 terabytes of storage. The greatest use for that amount of storage will be the 3D scans that I continue to archive. Our old server had limited disk space and was making storage problematic but now I've got more than enough to do what I need to do.

As dentistry's "Technology Evangelist" I often find myself promoting technologies that others may not understand yet. To those of you who are questioning the need for 3D, take a look at a few scans. Ask your colleagues who use it what they think of it. Of better yet, drop me an email and come take a look at my Gendex CB-500HD and see for yourself. The increased knowledge will change the way you practice!
