Dental Imaging Conversion Instructions
CBCT Imaging Preparation/Conversion
Dr. Jordan uses advanced CBCT imaging technology to develop customized treatment plans, clearly explain procedures to patients, and provide precision guidance for all dental and surgical procedures.
You may have CBCT scans from your referring doctor; however, they may not be in the same DICOM format used in our office. Converting these files from their various formats into the appropriate format for our software is time-consuming. It takes away from the time we prefer to devote to our patients.
If you have CBCT imaging files, we ask that you convert them to DICOM format before sending them to our office or bringing them to your appointment. Below are detailed conversion instructions for your convenience.
Saving Anatomage/Invivo/TxStudio Files to DICOM
- On your computer, create a new folder on the Desktop by right-clicking on the Desktop and going to New Folder. Use your full name for the folder name.
- Open the scanned image in Anatomage/Invivo/TxStudio.
- Go to File Save As
- Select “Multi-File DICOM with .dcm extension” (Click OK)
- Choose the new folder you created with your name as the location for saving the scan
- If the file is compressed, select Uncompressed and make sure the X, Y, and Z axis dropdown menus are set at 1:1.
- When the scan has been saved, close or minimize and compress the new folder into a .zip file (right-click, go to “Send,” and select “compressed folder.”
- You will see the .zip file on the Desktop. Please send this file to our office or download it to a thumb drive and bring it to your appointment.
