A computed tomography (CT) is a specialized type of X-ray equipment used when you require more than traditional dental or facial X-rays. A CT scan will produce 3-D images of your teeth, soft tissues, nerve pathways, and bone, all in a single scan.
A CT scan is also referred to as a CAT scan. It combines many X-ray images taken from different angles to produce cross-sectional images of specific areas of a scanned object. This allows you to see inside a region without cutting.
You will be sure to receive clear and precise results with the CT scan. We will be happy to sit down with you after you receive your results to speak with you about treatment options. Contact our Vancouver office at 604-872-0222, or our Coquitlam office at 604-936-8244 to schedule an appointment.
