Frequently Asked Questions
“While there are clinical benefits to CBCT, we recognize that there is an ongoing discussion in the dental community concerning the technology’s application and safety. We also recognize and acknowledge that there are legitimate concerns regarding radiation safety. We understand that clinicians are keenly aware of the ALARA principle with respect to any radiographic modality.
“The i-CAT (used at EDI) features are designed to assist dental professionals in meeting their ALARA goals while weighing the risk of exposure with the scan’s clinical benefit for the application that the clinician selects.” Excerpt taken from Imaging Sciences Report 23 Nov 2010.
It has been our mandate since CBCT was first introduced to the dental community that every scan be read by our Oral and Maxillofacial Radiologists. This alleviates any chance of an abnormality or pathology going undetected.
Every case involving a CBCT scan taken through EDI includes:
- Radiographic interpretation by one of our Oral and Maxillofacial Radiologists (implant cases include measurements, unless otherwise specified.)
- Hard copy digital printouts of all relevant images using our high-quality, dye sublimation printer
- Images burned to DVD in the form of .pdf or .jpg files
- Free viewing software so you can review your patient’s entire scan
Yes! EDI works closely with some of the most innovative and advanced dental software companies today to help make the most out of your CBCT data. Anatomodel from Anatomage, creates dynamic, digital study models with optional 3D face modeling, complete with a free software viewer. These digital models can be segmented as needed and they can even produce a set of stone models from the same CBCT scan, allowing you to offer impressionless study models! For more information on this new digital model service, please contact Bev Studer.
At EDI, we understand how costly those implant planning software programs can be. The training time and the time it takes to convert the data/upload it into the program only add to the confusion. EDI works closely with several third party conversion services and can easily provide you with everything you need to plan your guided implant surgery from start to finish! From the scanning appliance to the surgical guide, let us show you how easy it can be to get started. For more information, contact Bev Studer.
When referring a patient to EDI for a CBCT scan, it is recommended that any additional x-rays that have already been acquired in the referring office be forwarded with the referral form, which subsequently will be sent to our Oral and Maxillofacial Radiologist for review.

“In the interest of radiation safety, we rely on the referring practitioner to direct our investigation based on images that have already been made so that way we can collimate the radiation field to reduce unnecessary radiation dose to the patient. This is of particular importance for children and adolescents. EDI does not practice screening radiology as there is no evidence-base to support this practice.”
