Update on DentaScan at LMC: It’s not Panorex

By Robert Benz, MD, VPMA

 This is an update to the February 5 article LMC: Introducing DentaScan.

 For clarification, the new software, which is being offered at LMC, is a CT (CAT Scan) service.  It is NOT Panorex. 

 The DentaScan examination can be ordered as a CT study of the Maxillofacial Area without contrast (Code 70486).  At this time, the verbiage “Dental Evaluation” must be added to the request to insure that the DentaScan protocol is performed. 

 The test will be provided by the Radiology Department, performed by one of our CT Technologists.
