FAQ

Case reports are sent after about one clinic day. Immediate reports are also available.

An initial radiology consult report is only $50. Contact us about submitting multiple cases for a practice discount.

That’s a really good question. Each state requires that every CBCT volume has a complete radiographic report. Since you are directly responsible for everything inside your CBCT volume, like every procedure that you do, you choose whether you complete it yourself or refer it out. Since OMRs have years of training, we regularly spot things that are consistently missed in scans and can complete the report faster and more cost effectively.

Did you know?

Yes! While it can be difficult for the patient to remove rings, studs, and other piercings, metal within and adjacent to the scan adds artifact, limiting the diagnostic ability of the scan. 

No.*  The best way to reduce patient radiation dose is to collimate (narrow) the scan to include only the areas that you want to evaluate.
See our  image guidelines for more.
*While a thyroid collar can be helpful in other contexts, a collar here won’t eliminate radiation from the thyroid and usually makes adjacent areas of the scan non-diagnostic. 

Best Practices:
1. Make sure the machine won’t bump the patient, and instruct them not to move or swallow during the scan.
2. Watch the patient during the scan.  If you notice movement, stop the scan and restart. 
3. Before dismissing the patient, look through the scan to verify that the area of interest is within the scan and without significant motion. 

Dr. Jacob Dunn, DMD, MS, grew up in the Las Vegas valley. He completed his bachelor’s degree at Brigham Young University and his dental degree at the University of Nevada Las Vegas, School of Dental Medicine. While completing his Oral & Maxillofacial Radiology residency at University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, he enjoyed shrimp and grits and chicken and waffles immensely. Outside of school he’s been stranded in downtown Salt Lake City during the 2002 Winter Olympics, been detained by the police in Moscow, Russia, and researched under an expert of radiation dosimetry, Dr. John B Ludlow.

Dr. Dunn is a diplomate of the American Board of Oral & Maxillofacial Radiology and currently divides his time between speaking engagements, private practice radiology, teaching, general consulting, and his family.
