CBCT Imaging & Reporting

Example of Image Capture

We individualize the patient’s radiographic needs by customizing a field-of-view to provide the referring clinician with the best image quality at the lowest radiation dose, implementing the ALARA (As Low As Reasonably Achievable) principle.

All CBCT scans are reviewed by a board-certified oral and maxillofacial radiologist. 

Referring to University Dental Associates (UDA)

  1. Download and fill out the CBCT & Surgical Guide Prescription Form and fax to UDA, 402-472-0048. 
  2. Our staff will contact the patient and schedule an appointment for the scan.
  3. Once the patient is imaged, a CBCT scan (Dicom files and a free Dicom viewer) and an interpretation report will be transferred via a HIPAA compliant portal to the referring doctor's email.  Also, a CD can be mailed to the referring doctor’s office upon request.

Order a Surgical Guide

A tooth-borne surgical guide can be ordered to make a pilot/initial osteotomy at the desired implant site. The guide needs to be supported on at least three teeth that are spread out in the arch for stability. We 3D print surgical guides using biocompatible resin. If you have your own CBCT or intraoral scanner, we can accept your scans via a HIPPA compliant portal. There is no fee/charge for handling and processing your scans.
