When planning the Glasgow dental clinic, we decided to install the Ewoo Pax Duo Cone Beam CT Scanner. We have been using the system for some 14 months now and have noticed a growing number of referrals for these scans from colleagues who feel its use may benefit the patients under their care.
In addition, with more scans being taken we provide a facility for the reporting of these scans where appropriate – and this is carried out by our consultant colleague Mr Neil Heath.
The Ewoo system has many advantages: the variety of field of view options means that only the areas of interest need be exposed to radiation and the software planning element is superb.
Together with Ewoo and given the success of our previous open evening in June last year, we have organised a CBCT evening in the clinic. The evening will be relatively informal, free of charge and will comprise a general introduction to CBCT scans in dentistry, followed by valuable input from Mr Neil Heath, Consultant in Dental Radiology, and Mr Paul Taylor from Ewoo. Verifiable CPD certificates will be provided for those in attendance.
The evening is planned for Thurs 2nd Feb from 630-830pm in our clinic at 154 Hyndland Road, Hyndland, Glasgow, G12 9HZ. Please contact 0141 339 7579 to reserve your place .
We hope that this evening will provide an ideal opportunity for referring dentists or colleagues to gain further insight into CBCT scanning in dentistry, commonly detected anomalies and what we should be reporting. In addition, it will be a good informal networking evening with opportunity to discuss any relevant cases.
