NewTom5G CT Scan

Airline Animal Health and Surgery Center is proud to offer NewTom5G Computed Tomography (CT Scan) to our clients. NewTom5G Computed Tomography (CT Scan) is a new 3D imaging diagnostic technology. This new technology is very affordable and allows doctors to attain faster, more accurate images essential for an early diagnosis and when time is imperative for a treatment plan for your pet. Airline Animal Health and Surgery Center is the only clinic east of Dallas and north of LSU to have the NewTom5G Computed Tomography (CT Scan). Please contact our office for more information.

Why Cone Beam Technology?

Traditional CT scans operate by producing a “fan”-like beam of radiation that creates one image “slice” at a time. This fan beam must circle the patient repeatedly to generate all of the slices needed to create a full image. In comparison, the Cone Beam CT creates a three-dimensional “cone”-like beam. This means that the beam only has to circle the patient one time to image an entire area, exposing your pet to far less radiation.

The scanner also senses and responds to patient size, producing even less radiation for our smaller patients. Studies in human maxillo-facial and dental imaging have shown that Cone Beam CTs expose a patient to anywhere from 5-100 times less radiation than traditional CTs. Finally, the cone generates a huge amount of data that is easily and immediately converted into a traditional and three-dimensional image.

3D Dental Imaging

A 3D scan can help gain a better view of bone structures, such as adjacent root positions, in order to locate canals and root fractures, as well as provide the ability to more accurately measure anatomical structures. These scans also support a wide range of diagnosis and treatment planning, making them extremely flexible. Further, they increase the possibility of treatment success, granting practitioners greater predictability and confidence in preparing for extractions, performing root evaluations, and placing implants.

We are now offering 3 Dimensional dental/maxillofacial imaging with all of our dentals to better assess our patients’ dental needs and offer superior dental care. This will help us visualize any fractures, tooth root abscesses, bone loss, tooth resorption, enamel loss, and any other bone and nasal/sinus abnormalities.
