Scatter Reduction

Metal in the patient's mouth causes a scattering of data during the CT scan. NYU Radiology is one of the few Simplant Master sites in NYC with the ability to edit scatter/artifact from your Simplant processed CT scan, at no additional fee. The CT technologist post-processes the patient's CT data and removes the spinal column, erases scatter, and separates the scan template or teeth from the other anatomy.

For example:

Maxilla – unedited Maxilla – edited
   
Mandible – unedited Mandible – edited
