CBCT is the New Standard of Care
Please take a few moments to read this powerful article relating to 3D digital imaging and the â€œStandard of Careâ€. This article is credible for multiple reasons: 1) It was published in the peer-reviewed California Dental Association Journal in September, 2009, and 2) Both authors are highly respected in the US and are considered experts on the topic.
Why this article is a MUST read:
1. Provides a legal definition of â€œStandard of Careâ€ and how it applies to CBCT
2. Discusses what actions a dentist can take to minimize their legal exposure
3. Identifies clinical situations when a dentist should obtain 3D imaging
iMagDent realizes how controversial it is to say that CBCT is â€œTHE Standard of Careâ€ for dental imaging. Please read the article and render your own opinion. We feel that it is iMagDentâ€™s responsibility to keep our referrals current on CBCT information regarding 3D diagnostic hardware, software, clinical applications and legal information.
