All medical imaging systems conform to the Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) protocol, which is the industry standard for developing and sharing medical digital images. Note that, while two-dimensional X-ray images can be used for treatment planning, the vast majority of images used are three-dimensional.
US Market Report for Treatment Planning Software 2017 is a new market research publication announced by Reportstack. While digital dental imaging systems such as panoramic and cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scanners offer accompanying imaging software that provides diagnostic tools to process the radiographic scans, this is only a small part of the greater guided surgery process.
Computer guided surgery encompasses several processes. First, the patient must receive either a medical computed tomography (CT) or CBCT scan that will provide an accurate three-dimensional recreation of the patient’s maxillary and mandibular jaw structure.
It is strongly recommended that patients undergo CBCT scans rather than medical CT scans, as CBCT scans offer a more accurate diagnosis of a patient’s skull and emit a significantly lower dosage of radiation than medical CT scanners.
The second step in computer guided surgery involves the production of a diagnostic report that reveals important details concerning the health and condition of a patient’s jaw structure. Next, the three-dimensional image is converted through either diagnostic imaging or treatment planning software to build a digital three-dimensional model of the patient’s jaw.
The fourth step is what separates computer guided surgery from the purely diagnostic functionality of the digital imaging software. This step requires the use of treatment planning software in one of two possible ways: the dentist may purchase treatment planning software for which they must pay an annual licensing fee, or they may outsource the imaging data to a third party that can fabricate the treatment plan for the dentist using one of the various software packages available.
The final stage is optional: the dentist may have a surgical guide fabricated. Treatment planning software allows the dentist to export the guide design to a dental lab, other third party manufacture or fabricate it in-house.
