Did you know....

During a recent tech support call I was informed that you can reconstruct any scan into any protocol from the raw data. This means that if you take a scan at .3 for an implant and the doctor also wants to see the TMJ you can reconstruct the same scan at .4 for that! We found this interesting and thought some of you might as well. Laura-RMOX

I believe this is true ONLY for .3 & .4 mm scans. I reconstructed a .4 scan to .25 and the images were not 1:1.

What's wrong with .3 for TMJ ?
It should be better than .4

We often use .4 for TMJ because of iCAT Vision. The TMJ function in iCAT Vision does not work in .3 much of the time - but does work in .4.

To clarify, you can reconstruct any case taken at .4 to a .3 and reconstruct any case taken at .3 to a .4

You can also recontruct any case taken at .25 to a .2 or .2 to a .25

However, you can't cross the line from .4 or .3 down to .25 or .2 or vice versa.
