Celebrating Patient Safety Awareness Week 2024

March 13, 2024

Patient Safety Awareness Week from March 10-16, 2024, is an important time for healthcare professionals to reflect on the critical role that safety plays in patient care.

At Reveal Diagnostics, we're at the forefront of promoting advanced Cone Beam CT (CBCT) imaging technology in dental and chiropractic care to ensure the highest standards of patient safety and precision diagnosis.

Why Patient Safety is Paramount in Dental and Chiropractic Imaging

Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) has revolutionized dental and chiropractic imaging by offering distinct advantages over traditional Computed Tomography (CT) scans, significantly enhancing patient safety.

Unlike conventional CT scans, CBCT imaging utilizes a cone-shaped X-ray beam, resulting in significantly lower radiation exposure for the patient. This reduction in radiation is crucial, particularly for children and those requiring multiple scans, minimizing the risk of long-term radiation effects. 

Additionally, CBCT scanners are capable of providing high-resolution, 3D images of the bone and soft tissue with a single scan. This accuracy not only aids in precise diagnosis and treatment planning but also reduces the need for repeat scans, further lowering the patient’s exposure to radiation.

Minimizing Radiation Exposure with CBCT Technology

At Reveal Diagnostics, our advanced CBCT technology is designed with patient safety in mind. Unlike traditional CT scans, our CBCT systems with SafeBeam technology can focus the beam precisely on the area of interest, significantly reducing the radiation dose to the patient.

Expert Analysis for Accurate Diagnosis

Our partnership with Board Certified Oral and Maxillofacial Radiologists, brings an unmatched level of expertise to our diagnostic services. Understanding the intricacies of the jaw, teeth, and facial bone structure allows for accurate diagnoses, minimizing the need for repeat scans and further exposure.

Patient Safety Awareness Week is not just about recognizing the importance of safety in dental care; it's about actively participating in the conversation and practices that ensure every patient receives the highest standard of safe care.

CBCT stands out as a critical tool in ensuring patient safety while advancing the capabilities of dental and chiropractic imaging.

We invite chiropractors and dental professionals to join our mission at Reveal Diagnostics as we adopt the latest advancements in CBCT imaging technology and explore ways to further incorporate safety measures into every aspect of patient care.
