Dental Imaging

At Hospital Lane Dental and Implant Clinic, we have invested in the Pax-i3D Cone Beam CT unit to optimise image quality and patients safety.

The Pax-i3D is an advanced digital dental diagnostic system that incorporates Panoramic, Cephalometric and 3D CT imaging capabilities into a single system.

The Pax-i3D system uses advanced sensors to produce higher quality images in 2D and 3D of the dental/maxillofacial regions for detailed treatment planning and diagnostics.

The Pax-i3D provides 4 different Field of Volume sizes for CBCT images; 5cm x 5cm, 8cm x 5cm, 8cm x 8cm, 12cm x 9cm. The optimum CBCT FOV will be chosen to minimise patient radiation dose whilst ensuring all required fields are captured.

CT scans

CT Scans are supplied to referring dentists with free EZ implant planning software so third party expenses are avoided.

Anatomical concavities are clearly identifiable on cross sectional images
Cone Beam CT is now accepted as the gold standard for accurate surgical planning and ensuring effective, reliable implant placement. Referring dentists are required to have a service level agreement with the clinic and undertake appropriate training for prescribing and evaluating CT scans, please use the download available if you would like to use this service.

Panoral Radiographs

The Pax-i3D unit has high definition and Magic Pan features which enable exceptionally high quality panoral images. Panoral radiographs are available on request for referred patients.

If a Panoral radiograph has already been taken, this is very useful to help ideally position the centre of the field of view of the CT scan.  Marking up a Panoral with the areas of interest for a CT scan is the best method of communicating the areas you need 3D imaging for.  Panorals can be emailed to or queries regarding optimum size for CBCT images.
