Reduce Your Risks and Expand Your Diagnostic Findings

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.

Special AJO-DO article

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.”

I just wanted to write a supreme thank you to BeamReaders.

I wanted to let you know that as of now, we are both responsible for finding carotid calcifications that allowed my patient to see an interventional radiologist who used Doppler technology to find that his carotid artery was 90% occluded and with his history of Burkitt's Lymphoma, led his physicians to remove this blockage and he successfully completed this surgery 2 weeks ago. He gave me a big hug, but without your service and the recognition that you deserve, that hug doesn't happen. And you don't always get the recognition or the hug. I just wanted to make sure that you knew about this and that you have impacted my practice and my patient's life in a real and impactful way.

Thank you for your service and for making us look better.

BeamReaders is by far the best maxillofacial radiology review service in the Americas and probably in the world. Their submitting portal is very easy to navigate and their response time is excellent. Having the reassurance that all their excellent maxillofacial radiologists are reviewing your radiology volumes gives you incredible peace of mind and your patient will have the most up to date diagnosis available today. They may possibly pick up on nuances that other services will usually miss. Having people like Dr. Dania Tamimi as well as Dr. David Hatcher in their team raises the bar of their service to a level that is very difficult to meet by other similar services. They wrote in my opinion what I consider the “Bibles” in TMJ and airway and maxillofacial radiology. Those two books are hands down the best ones available in this subject. Dr. Hatcher, Cory Hatcher, and all of their team have my vote for best Maxillofacial Radiology review service.
