BeamReaders Oral and Maxillofacial Radiologists will help you unlock the information within each CBCT scan to get every new ortho patient off to a great start.
Every radiology report comprehensively evaluates the entire scan
volume to aid your orthodontic planning.
Identify impacted teeth and their relationship with adjacent structures such as the inferior alveolar canal.
Assessment of periodontal structures and bone support.
Visualization and quantification of airway morphology.
Assessment of temporomandibular joint bony structures and condylar position.
Identify and quantify asymmetries.
Rule out incidental findings or pathology that compromise orthodontic treatment planning.
Aside from being the right thing to do for the patient, it is widely considered now that the interpretation of CBCT scans is a legal requirement. It is the responsibility of the practitioner ordering the CBCT images to ensure that the scans are adequately interpreted. Yet as with any other dental procedure, the orthodontist is not required to perform the radiographic interpretation personally; a referral to a colleague (oral radiologist) who is qualified to complete this task is a viable option.
In CBCT scans, supplementary findings have been reported to be as high as 25%. Airway, nasal polyps, TMJ aberrations, sinus pathologies, cervical vertebrae clefts and endodontic lesions have all been confirmed. “The relatively high frequency of incidental findings on CBCT scans (25%) suggests that CBCT scans obtained for orthodontic purposes should be further reviewed by an oral maxillofacial radiologist.”CBCT– A boon to Orthodontics
BeamReaders Radiology Reports describe and visualize abnormalities that may affect your orthodontic planning, so you can plot the best treatment course and get your patient off on the right foot.
Clinically concise review of the entire scan volume reducing your 3D liability.
Visually communicate the imaging goals to you and your patient. Show your patients the “why” of your treatment plan.
Strengthen your referral relationships by giving your referrers free access to the patient’s imaging, reports, and portfolios.
