One of our utmost priorities here at Hudson Orthodontics is to always offer the latest in state-of-the-art orthodontic technology. We're always striving to give our patients the best orthodontic experience possible and by being able to supply cutting-edge technology, we're able to provide our patients with the most comfortable, convenient, and efficient orthodontic treatments. When you visit your orthodontist in the Muscle Shoals area, including Tuscumbia, Florence, and Sheffield, our technology will allow you to receive some of the best in orthodontics, whether you're looking for metal braces, clear braces, or clear aligners. One of these advances that'll be especially useful for you during your time here is our i-CAT technology.

What Is i-CAT?

The i-CAT Cone Beam 3-D Imaging System is a revolutionary improvement to computed tomography (CT) imaging. CT imaging has been used in the medical field for over 30 years and it's been the diagnostic tool of choice for orthodontists because of useful technological advancements like the i-CAT Cone Beam. The 3-D CT technology that the i-CAT Cone Beam is able to provide gives a much quicker full scan of a patient's head than 2-D imaging allows. This easy-to-use system can produce a 3D image in less than a minute! This will also give your Muscle Shoals orthodontist a better visualization of both the hard and soft tissues of the craniofacial structures by showing it from several different perspectives. The i-CAT Cone Beam also releases up to 90 percent less radiation than traditional X-ray machines, which provides our patients with the most safety while still providing completely clear images for efficient diagnostic analysis and treatment.

What i-CAT Can Be Used For

Some examples of how i-CAT can be used include the following:

  • Facial analysis
  • Tongue size and posture
  • Airway assessment
  • TMJ assessment
  • Assessment of the alveolar bone
  • Assessment of cleft lip and palates
  • Surgical planning
  • Impacted tooth position
  • Placement of dental implants
