Redefining Patient Care with Cone Beam CT

“Cone beam CT reduces the barriers for orthopedic practices to offer CT imaging in-house,” says Dr. Benjamin Stronach, MD, an orthopedic surgeon at UAMS Health.

  • Radiation to the patient in a cone beam CT exam is lower than comparable exams on medical CT – 3.5 μSv1 per foot and ankle exam vs. 70 μSv2, respectively.
  • The footprint of a cone beam CT system is more manageable than a medical CT system.
  • The cost of of ownership of cone beam CT is generally lower than medical CT.
