The i-CAT Cone Beam CT gives our oral and maxillofacial practice state-of-the-art technology to help Dr. Thigpen diagnose potential issues more accurately and provide treatment with unprecedented confidence. Unlike a traditional spiral CT scanner, this 3D system utilizes cone beam CT technology and provided precise, crystal-clear digital images while minimizing your exposure to radiation. Our 3D system enables us to perform a wider range of diagnoses and treatments in our office, helping to reduce multiple visits. Our 3D scanner allows us to choose the field of view, or scanning area, that best suits your specific treatment needs. This helps to limit your radiation exposure because we are focusing specifically on your area of concern. The i-CAT system brings the latest 3D technology to The West Coast Center for Jaw Surgery, providing unmatched visualization of anatomical detail aids in treatment planning and helps us better explain the particulars of your case and address any questions you might have. Dr. Thigpen can use this innovative technology to quickly and easily share 3D images of the area of concern with your referring doctor – allowing the doctors to collaborate on your care, improving your experience and delivering a positive treatment outcome.
