TeraRecon

TeraRecon

TeraRecon brings real-time 3D visualization technology to diagnostic imaging. An advanced radiology workstation enables real-time diagnostic review of 2D, 3D, and 4D images for CT and MRI.

Simplant

Simplant

Sierra Imaging Associates has the capability of computer-guided implantology for dental implant surgery. The system is an interactive 3D implant planning system using Simplant software for predictable treatment planning of dental implants. It allows the implant surgeon to determine the bone density of the jaw, and find the ideal position of the implants for both clinical and esthetic considerations. A CT scan provides comprehensive, non-distorted data describing the patient’s bone quantity and quality. SimPlant interactive CT software allows an accurate evaluation of the patient’s anatomy and simulates implant placement and bone augmentation procedures. Implant placement is guided by a surgical template fabricated with a 3D printer according to the original treatment plan. This new treatment modality assures precise and predictable implant placement for better treatment outcome. For more information about our Simplant sytem contact us, and we will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Cardiac Calcium Scoring

Cardiac Calcium Scoring

Cardiac Calcium Scoring uses a CT scan to find the build-up of calcium on the walls of the arteries of the heart (coronary arteries). This test is used to check for heart disease in an early stage and to determine how severe it is.

Cardiac Calcium Scoring is also called Coronary Artery Calcium Scoring. The coronary arteries supply blood to the heart. Normally, the coronary arteries do not contain calcium. Calcium in the coronary arteries is a sign of CAD.

A CT scan generates an x-ray beam that rotates around your body, and a powerful computer creates cross-sectional images, like slices of the inside of your body. These images are recorded in a computer and can be saved for more study, or printed out as photographs.
 

Why It Is Done

Cardiac Calcium Scoring is done:

  • To check for early heart disease.
  • Find out how severe heart disease is.
