The article offers information on the i-CAT cone beam imaging system from Body Logic, which was installed in the practice of specialist orthodontist Peter Monckton, located in Mackay, North Queensland. Monckton says the i-CAT is better than the digital orthopantomogram (OPG) and cephalogram already in his practice. Monckton says that with the i-CAT, patients with impacted teeth and jaw surgery can now be treated. He adds that the images produced by the system could be used for treatment planning and as a marketing tool for the practice.
