Software, Computed Tomography Study, Dental
Definition : Computed tomography (CT) study software designed to acquire, process, and archive data and images obtained during dental studies. This software usually works with CT scanning systems and post-imaging workstations; it may also interact with devices used in the procedures, such as monitors, printers, and recorders. The software is intended to work only with one or a few models of dental CT scanning systems and related devices, usually supplied by the same manufacturer. This also facilitates the processing and/or sending of data to and from hospital information systems and other (e.g., picture archiving and communication) workstations. Dental studies typically use CT panoramic images to perform real-time image reformation and/or other dental assessments. The software may or may not be available separate from the CT equipment and may be updated and/or upgraded (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the equipment.
