The Benefits of i-CAT
This CT technology can provide an incredible range of three-dimensional data with just a 15-second scan, allowing Dr. Moles to make an extremely effective and precise diagnosis. We perform the scan in an open and comfortable environment, so there’s no need to be nervous before your appointment. It will be over before you know it! These quick, yet extremely detailed scans reduce the number of times you need to visit the office, which will save you time and money in the long run.
The i-CAT Cone Beam also limits your radiation exposure, by releasing 90% less radiation than traditional X-ray machines. The end result is crystal-clear digital images that can quickly and easily be shared between doctor and patient, allowing collaboration on care like never before.
