The digital radiography systems at IMI Clinic

The IMI Clinic is equipped with digital radiography systems that offer a number of advantages to patients:

  • Through advances in technology, the dose of radiation absorbed by the patient is far lower than that of traditional X-ray systems. Sophisticated software management systems allow us to assess the radiographic image, zooming in, rotating, observing in 3D, and colouring it according to the density of the tissues, as well as measuring its dimensions.  
  • In addition, due to the rapid scanning of modern sensors, it is possible to carry out intra-operative monitoring which in some particularly delicate surgical interventions is invaluable for ensuring the positive outcome of the treatment.

This new way of monitoring is far more eco-friendly, as it does not produce harmful liquids produced by old equipment.

This equipment allows IMI Clinic’s specialists to carry out a wide variety of assessments.

Orthopantography (OPG): this offers a panoramic view of the upper. This type of X-ray allows the dentist to have a comprehensive view of the condition of the patient’s teeth, that of the periodontal tissues, the devitalised teeth, fillings, and any implantology interventions. Orthopantography is also fundamental for establishing whether the patient is suffering from periodontitis, and at what stage this may be. 

Intraoral plates: these offer the dentist greater visibility of the individual dental elements, but also the maxillary bone into which they are inserted. These plates also make it possible to know the number and shape of the roots and to measure the root canals with extreme precision. They are mainly used in endodontic treatments to ensure root canals are fully sanitised.

Cone beam imaging: also known as digital 3D radiography is now an imperative instrument in the field of dentistry used for implant surgery, endodontics, conservative treatment and tooth extraction. The cone beam images provide a 3D reproduction of the patient’s anatomy, making it possible to observe the dimensions from any perspective for evaluating the bone volume with a complete overview.
