The 3D Imaging Lab at Massachusetts General Hospital provides 3D post-processing for medical and surgical specialties using protocols tailored to specific clinical applications.
Clinical application of 3D images in oral maxillofacial surgery provides information that improves patient care:
- Visualization of the alveolar nerve canal on 3D CT can help prevent nerve damage or assess nerve involvement from extractions or in planning dental implants
- 3D rendering for maxillofacial cases can guide surgical planning and treatment
3D post-processing is available for applications including:
- CT Facial Bones
- CT Mandible for Inferior Alveolar Nerve (IAN)
- CT Simplant for implant planning
In addition, we provide pre-processing of self-pay dental implant CT exams performed at Mass General Imaging locations in Chelsea and Waltham.
3D Applications: Facial
Oral Maxillofacial Surgery: Facial tumor
