Unprecedented Speed, Accuracy & 3D Detail with Less Radiation, Enhances Patient Care
Caldwell, January 22, 2013 — Dr. Michael Kirsch’s practice is among the
first in the community to add a 3D extraoral imaging system to its office,
revolutionizing patient treatment with highly detailed radiographs, or x-rays.
Having true-to-life 3D images produced by the device, called a Cone Beam CT
Scan, helps Dr. Michael Kirsch, Dr. Ben Jacobs and Dr. George Sandau provide
quicker and more accurate diagnoses, improved treatment planning and better
“The Cone Beam CT provides the advantages of high-resolution, relatively low radiation dose and the ability to target a very specific area for radiographs or x-rays,” said Dr. Kirsch, 16 Smull Avenue, Caldwell. “It is an industry-leading system that has been designed to dramatically enhance treatment planning while delivering fast, accurate results for enhanced
Because the Cone Beam CT allows the surgeons at the NJ Center for Oral
Surgery to target the exact area for exposure, patients are exposed to
significantly less radiation when they receive an x-ray. This means that other
tissues around the mouth area will not be unnecessarily irradiated. The system
combines speed (taking x-ray images in as little as 12 seconds), image quality
and precision placement to dramatically reduce the need for retakes as well.
“With 75-90% smaller radiation dose than conventional spiral CT scans
like those found at radiology facilities and hospitals, our Cone Beam CT helps
us adhere to the ALARA Principle –or, ‘As Low As Reasonably Achievable’ – which we follow to ensure every precaution is taken to minimize patient exposure to radiation when obtaining the necessary diagnostic images needed for treatment planning,” Dr. Kirsch said.
With a low radiation dose and precise, crystal-clear 3D and panoramic
images, our CT scanner offers the doctors at the NJ Center for Oral Surgery an
unprecedented level of anatomical insight into specific dental regions of
interest to help diagnose more accurately and treat with confidence. Benefits
of the Cone Beam CT Scanner include:
- High resolution images: Our surgeons can see patient teeth with unprecedented detail.
- Less radiation: patient health and safety is the NJ Center for Oral Surgery’s greatest concern.
- Comfortable positioning: the system’s open design makes exams more comfortable, with both seated and standing options to accommodate patients of all sizes.
- Improved care: Dr.’s Kirsch, Jacob and Sandau can perform a wider range of diagnoses with even greater accuracy.
