What Is Galileos CT?
The Galileos CT uses advanced CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) to gather a comprehensive view of a patient’s oral health. Unlike traditional x-rays, this 3D digital scanner allows Dr. Hope to scan the entire head of a patient. The high-resolution images delivered by the Galileos CT scanner provide a more in-depth view of a patient’s oral health.
With easy-to-use 3D views, Dr. Hope can help you understand the overall health of your mouth, and quickly diagnose potential oral health issues. By providing incredibly clear, reliable images, a comprehensive, full-face scan, and fast results, the Galileos CT helps Dr. Hope to deliver exceptional dental care.
The Benefits Of Galileos CT Technology
There are quite a few benefits of using Galileos CT technology. First, patients are exposed to less radiation, as compared to traditional digital and film x-ray imaging.
The Galileos CT scan exposes patients to the equivalent of 3 digital panoramic x-rays , or 1-2 film panoramic x-rays. This means that the overall level of radiation exposure is much lower than a traditional full-mouth x-ray series.
This technology also minimizes the need for re-shoots because hundreds of images are taken during the scan, offering more thorough and comprehensive imaging.
The Galileos CT scanner also delivers incredibly fast results. A full face scan can be taken in just 14 seconds, and you’ll be in the machine for less than a minute. This helps provide faster, more accurate diagnoses, and minimizes the time you have to spend both in the waiting room, and in the dentist’s office!
Finally, Galileos CT technology allows Dr. Hope to diagnose potential oral health issues quickly and efficiently. With advanced 3D imaging and incredibly high-resolution digital scans of your mouth and face, Dr. Hope has all of the diagnostic information that he needs to provide you with the best dental care in Escondido and San Marcos.
