Wouldn’t it be great to be able to view dental diagnostic images in 3D? Dental radiography allows for a two-dimensional (planar) view and interpretation of pathology and anatomical anomalies, but what if you could get high quality, 3-dimensional images, generated in your own practice?

Introducing VetCAT portable CT!


VetCAT is a small and portable cone beam CT (CBCT) machine. With a footprint of only 820mm x 1200mm, it rotates 360 degrees around the region of interest and can generate full 3-dimensional images with submillimeter resolution and 3D reconstruction. Being self-shielded, the unit can be used intraoperatively and allows precise visualization of surgical margins. CBCT have advantages over conventional multisection CT (MSCT), including a shorter scan time and increased geometrical accuracy. CBCT is especially indicated for use in dental and exotic practice, and is currently used in the USA to assist planning of dental and interventional procedures. CBCT can also be used for evaluating ear canals and TM-joint conditions in patients.

Full-sized CT machines are expensive and impractical in general veterinary practice, leading to cases having to be referred. Using your own in-house VetCAT portable CT machine gives you control over the timing and quality of your diagnostic scans and allows for retention of cases and an additional revenue stream.

If you think your practice could benefit from adding CT to your diagnostic equipment, or if you are interested in this technology and would like to know more, give us a call on 02 9679 5733, or visit www.Cenquip.com.au
