Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT)

Head and Neck Center of Hawai’i

What is Cone Beam CT (CBCT)?

Head and Neck Center of Hawai’i utilizes specialized imaging technology called Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT). It is a specialized form of computed tomography imaging that uses a cone-shaped beam of radiation to produce three-dimensional images of an object, such as the human body.

CBCT has several benefits in chiropractic practice, including:

Cone beam CT (CBCT) is a valuable diagnostic tool that offers high-quality, detailed imaging while reducing radiation exposure and providing a comfortable, non-invasive experience for patients. CBCT has become an important tool in chiropractic practice, providing chiropractors with detailed information about the spine and surrounding structures, allowing for more accurate diagnoses and effective treatment planning, and ultimately leading to improved patient outcomes and satisfaction.

Cone Beam CT and Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic

Head and Neck Center of Hawai’i utilizes specialized imaging called Cone Beam CT. Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) is a specialized type of computed tomography (CT) that uses a cone-shaped X-ray beam to produce high-quality 3D images of structures inside the body, such as bone and soft tissues. In Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic, CBCT imaging is used to create a detailed image of the upper cervical spine and surrounding structures. This allows Dr. Perrino to accurately assess the alignment of the atlas (C1 vertebra) and axis (C2 vertebra), which are the first two vertebrae in the neck. The Atlas Orthogonal technique involves the use of a specialized adjusting instrument to gently correct any misalignment in the atlas vertebra. By using CBCT imaging, Dr. Perrino can ensure that the adjustment is precise and targeted, as well as monitor progress over time. Overall, CBCT imaging is a valuable tool in Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractic as it provides detailed, accurate information that helps guide treatment and ensure optimal outcomes for patients.
