CBCT scanners are not used routinely because they produce more radiation exposure than regular X-rays however, they are necessary when X-rays prove inconclusive or insufficient. For the scan itself, you should wear comfortable, loose-fitting clothing. Please note, you may be given a gown to wear during the procedure.
Metal objects, including jewellery, eyeglasses, dentures, and hairpins may affect the CT images, so we recommend that you leave these at home or remove them prior to your exam. You may also be asked to remove hearing aids or any removable dental work. Women will be asked to remove bras containing metal underwire.
