DVT: Digital Volume Tomography
Today a DVT image is the preferred tool for the three-dimensional planning of corrective osteotomies or other surgical or cosmetic interventions in the facial area. To avoid subjecting the patient to the high radiation emissions of a CT, an image of similar precision is rendered with our system at a recording volume of 23 Ø x 17 cm. This is generally sufficient to completely map the entire part of the jaw bearing the teeth as well as the surrounding structures of the midface area.
Course of treatment
Doctors send their patients to us with a brief description of the area to be examined and we record a DVT image immediately. The patient receives the file immediately on a DVD with a viewer; a few days later, we send a short radiological report directly to the referring practice. If you are a doctor trained in digital volume tomography, you can, of course, write the finding yourself.
