DENTAL, MAXILLOFACIAL AND ENT RADIOLOGY

The Prevenzione e Diagnostica per Immagini centre in Bari specialises in the field of dental, maxillofacial and ENT radiology. The services we provide include:

  • digital panoramic radiography (children, adults, individual areas);
  • digital telecranium (with potential cephalometric tracings) ONE-SHOT: the first system in Italy*! One-shot technology provides an X-ray exposure time which is significantly less than 1 second with an extremely high-definition image;
  • TC Cone Beam. This technology makes it possible to perform a CT scan with a significantly lower dose of radiation than Dentalscan. 2 cone beam CT scanners are available in the facility. The first is dedicated to facial observations. The second makes it possible to perform a CT scan of an individual arch, both arches, or an individual area, giving the patient lower radiation doses, with extremely high-definition imaging. It also makes it possible to assess the volume of airways in patients with OSAS.
