Some patients do not understand whether a bone augmentation is really needed, and are not ready to pay extra for it. In such cases, a 3D STL model generated by AI, including segmentation, makes it possible to demonstrate the area with insufficient bone to the patient, and explain why it is impossible to place an implant without an additional grafting procedure.
At DentQ, we exclusively provide DICOM to STL conversion service, including segmentation, using DiagnoCat’s innovative AI platform. We can provide you this service for a CBCT scan taken at many of our dental radiology centers around the world, as well as for DICOM files sent to us online. The resulting STL models can serve dentists as a communication tool that helps them convince patients to accept the chosen treatment, including – as described here – bone graft augmentation.
In order to enable such advanced services globally, we are now opening up a global radiology reports and services at Maxillog.com, so you will soon be able to conveniently get your DICOM files converted to STL with augmentation, anytime, anywhere, and from any device.
If you have any questions about our DICOM to STL conversion service, including for demonstrating the need for bone graft to successfully place an implant, at DentQ and CTdent branches, or at Maxillog online radiology center, do not hesitate to contact us.
