Shown on this page is a photograph of our Kodak 9300 Extraoral 3D Imaging System. This system produces lateral and posterior-anterior cephalometric, panoramic, TMJ and State of the Art 3D images. All of these serve as critical tools in the diagnosing and treatment planning of each patient’s case. This machine’s 3D capability allows Dr. Anderson to study your case in all planes of space and reveals findings that would not be detected in standard, two-dimensional images traditionally used in orthodontic offices.
This machine, with all of its auxiliary components, renders extremely high quality images, while exposing our patients to far less radiation as compared to conventional x-ray machines. However, we continue to drape all of our patients with lead aprons providing an additional measure of safety.
