Oromax Imaging is a Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) Imaging Centre in the heart of South Kolkata, providing comprehensive, in-depth solutions to the diagnostic needs of Dental and ENT practitioners, via a wide range of 2D and 3D scan services.
Founded in November 14, 2015 by Founder and Chief Oral & Maxillofacial Radiologist, Dr. Shaon Mukherjee (B.D.S., M.S.), Oromax Imaging boasts unrivalled knowledge and proficiency in interpretation and reporting of all 2D and 3D scan images. Hands-on training in CBCT software and one-on-one sessions with all doctors are a part and parcel of our guiding principle. We invite you, herewith, to join hands with us and "help us help you" in rendering the best of services to your patients. With such contributions to the field of Dental Radiology, let's all hope to steer India to the same standing as other countries in the coming years in the field of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology.
CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) had been introduced in Europe way back in 1996 and in the USA in the early 2000s. It has, since then, been a revolutionary invention that changed the world's dental radiology panorama. In the past couple of years, it has made its advent in the Indian market. With its various benefits for both dentists and patients, CBCT has been quite gripped the diagnostic beat in Kolkata. CBCT has become a part and parcel of dentistry and has thus, significantly improved quality and excellence of dental treatment.
CBCT is a faster and safer version of conventional CT scan. The use of a cone-shaped x ray beam and size of scanner, the radiation time and dose to the patient is considerably reduced. The time required is typically less than a minute and the radiation dose is about 75-90% lower than conventional CT scan.
The other advantages of CBCT and the rationale behind using it for dental treatment planning are :
1. 3D rendering with impeccable clarity (resolution) and stunning details of anatomy and pathosis
2. High image resolution and sharpness (voxel size - 90-500Ám)
3. Intelligent and intuitive software for viewing and reconstruction
4. Enhancement of communication with patients and referring doctors
After completing Bachelor of Dental Surgery (B.D.S.) from the esteemed Dr. R. Ahmed Dental College and Hospital, University of Calcutta, Dr. Shaon Mukherjee pursued her career to achieve her M.S. in Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology from the University of Iowa (U.S.A.). She was one of the few privileged professionals to have been under the supervision and guidance of one of the pioneers of Dental Radiology in the USA, Dr. Axel Ruprecht.
During the span of these three years, apart from studying Dental Radiology, she was exposed to various aspects of Medical/Head and Neck Radiology and got extensive training in CT scan, MRI and USG modalities. The concept of Cone Beam Computed Tomography was already making a mark in dental treatment planning in the USA while extensive use of conventional CT scans to plan dental implant studies were in vogue. This gave her a hands-on experience in the use of CT scan in dental treatment
Before embarking into this venture, she worked briefly as a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Oral Medicine, Diagnosis and Radiology, College of Dentistry, Bharati Vidyapeeth University, Navi Mumbai, India.
