Image quality is one of the most important factors to consider when choosing an imaging unit. Planmeca Verity® VET provides highly accurate 3D images of the patient’s anatomy. See the quality for yourself from the clinical images and clinical cases below.
After several trips to general vet, a young pug with extreme swelling and discharge from his left eye was presented to Dr. Mary Buelow, DVM, DAVDC. She hypothesized the symptoms might be caused by a dental issue and decided to scan the patient’s teeth.
While the intraoral 2D radiograph showed no lesions and was a typical one for brachycephalic breeds, the 3D image captured with Planmed Verity® VET CBCT scanner revealed severe endodontic disease, causing tooth root “abscess”. The coronal slices of the CBCT image show exactly the problem eluding general vet – and the 2D radiograph.
A patient with symptoms of tooth abscess underwent full FMX evaluation to confirm the suspected disease. Tooth abscess was found at canine tooth 104. For the treatment planning, a CBCT scan was captured in order to determine if the tooth could be treated by a root canal or if tooth extraction was necessary. The CBCT revealed the full extent of the disease and as a result, the tooth was removed.
