Because of you – OMFS

CT Cone Beam Scanner

As the regional centre for Throat and Neck Cancer, our L&D’s Oral and Maxillofacial Surgical (OMFS) team now offer this advanced piece of diagnostic machinery.

The CT Beam scanner studies the bones and structure of the face and mouth and produces 3D images, as opposed to normal 2D X-rays, although it can be used for these conventional scans as well. It will benefit 800 patients a year, including those needing orthodontic procedures – largely children and teenagers – ENT patients, and patients with maxillofacial trauma.
