Dr. Gloria Barredo is dedicated to providing patients with the best treatment possible. To assist in her diagnoses and contribute to a healthier, happier community, Dr. Barredo is among the first in the local area to add a CS 8100 3D extraoral imaging system to its office.
The Ct Scan captures highly detailed 3D radiographs, or X-rays. These true-to-life 3D images help Dr. Barredo provide quicker and more accurate diagnoses; improved treatment planning; and better patient care. Plus, the CS 8100 3D provides more services in-office, reducing the need to refer patients to outside imaging centers, meaning fewer visits and faster treatment. The unit also has the capability of capturing 2D panoramic images and scanning patients’ dental impressions or plaster models to create high precision 3D digital models of teeth.
“Teeth are three-dimensional objects, and this system provides the most accurate view of patients’ anatomy, all at relatively low radiation,” Dr.Gloria Barredo said. “It is an industry-leading system that allows me to view a patient’s anatomical situation from every angle, with exact scale accuracy.”
Featuring one of the highest 3D image resolutions available, the CS 8100 3D offers Dr. Barredo an unprecedented level of anatomical insight into specific dental regions of interest to help diagnose more accurately and treat with confidence. Patient health and safety is her greatest concern; because 3D system allows Dr. Barredo to limit the exposure area for examination, patients experience significantly less radiation than when compared to traditional CT imaging.
This system also features a special “Flash Scan” mode that allows Dr. Barredo to capture X-ray images in as little as seven seconds. “Flash Scan mode reduces the dose of radiation by 50 percent over standard acquisition,” says Dr. Barredo.
Additionally, the sharp, highly detailed and contrasted images captured by the CS 8100 3D give patients a unique view of their own dental structure, allowing them to see and understand exactly what she sees.
“I want my patients to understand completely why I recommend certain treatment options,” says Dr. Barredo. “When I can show them 3D images, they have access to the same information that I do and can feel comfortable with their decision to proceed with treatment.”
