Cone Beam CT. Our Services

Cone Beam CT

River Radiology has a NewTom 5G Cone Beam CT, a specialist machine. Like all CT machines it uses X-Rays, but an examination on the Cone Beam CT uses only 10% of the radiation delivered by a routine Fan Beam CT!

Our Cone Beam differs from the more commonly available Dental machines; patients lie down on a moving table to be scanned. This means we can scan elbows, wrists, hands, knees, ankles and feet – even the cervical spine (neck). The Cone Beam also gets wonderful high resolution scans of the face, sinuses, teeth, and temporal bones (inner ear). In other words, we can provide you with detail of your bones, joints and soft tissues with a safer procedure than anywhere else in town.
