Cone Beam CT Scan / OPT Referral
We have invested in our latest generation CBCT 3D scanner (Carestream CS8100) and offer a convenient referral service for regional practices.
Your patients will be seen for the scan and a link will be emailed to download the scan, which includes the software to view and manipulate the 3D images. The scans are open-format so can be viewed on any open-source CBCT viewing software.
The benefits of CBCT scan are becoming more and more apparent and there is a place for these scans in many areas of dentistry, including oral surgery, dental implants, periodontology and endodontics.

You may choose to report on the scans yourself - dentists are qualified to report on small field views.
There have been concerns regarding reporting on CBCT scans where views of the spine and other non-oral tissues have been taken. This would not be the case with our scans as these can be customised carefully to the patient to ensure that the scan is only of dental-related/oral areas, and also ensures that the radiation dose to the patient is as low as possible.
We do however offer a consultant radiologist report if requested, and the fees are as follows;
OPT - £55
Sextant - £55
Single Jaw - £85
Both Jaws - £100
