EDI provides a comprehensive series of services designed to support your treatment plan. Purchasing x-ray equipment requires a large commitment of both money and space. Time is also required to train staff to produce x- rays of sufficient quality to be diagnostic as well as to learn to maintain the radiographic equipment. Perhaps you can utilize your staff in other areas to enable your practice to grow. Repeat x-rays may cost you money and will cost your patient additional exposure to radiation. As this area is our specialty, quality can be guaranteed.

The i-CAT is a particularly effective form of imaging for the bony structures and teeth. It is regularly used for:

- Dental Implant – pre and post-treatment bone and sinus assessment
- Sinus/airway investigation
- Wisdom tooth evaluation

Frequently Asked Questions
When referring your patients to EDI, you gain access to our radiological reporting by one of our Oral and Maxillofacial Radiologists.
The combination of excellent quality radiographs and diagnostic reporting provided by EDI presents dentists with a firm base on which to deliver diagnostic expertise to their patients. If dentists have a precise diagnosis, they are better able to provide their patients with additional information, which will assist in making an accurate prognosis. The radiology report is also an important document if previous or current treatment is under review by a third party. An interpretation of radiographs that have been taken at another location can also be provided.
Whether you require duplicates of your radiographs to forward to other practitioners or for medical-legal purposes, EDI can provide excellent quality duplicates of your original films. We will scan your radiographs to compile on a DVD in the form of jpegs.
