What file format do you need?

CT and CBCT Imaging

CT scans need to be saved in either single-file DICOM or multi-file DICOM format.  If you have the Anatomage or TxStudio software, you have the option of saving the CT scan in either DICOM format or the Invivo (.inv) format.  CT scans saved in any other file format will not be able to be reviewed. We have step-by-step instructions for many popular 3D imaging programs. Type the name of your 3D imaging program or your CBCT machine brand into the 'Search for answers' field at the top of this page to see if we have the instructions for your 3D imaging software.

2D Imaging

If you have 2D radiographs, save them in either JPG, PNG, TIF, or BMP format.

MRI Imaging

If you are uploading MRI imaging, you will need to include the full contents of the disc you received from the imaging center.  Please note that some MRI imaging can only be read while the disc is in the computer.  We prefer that you try to upload the full contents of the MRI disc first.  If we determine that the disc is needed, we will contact you with specific mailing instructions.
