What is a double scan protocol?
Double scan protocol is useful in total edentulous jaw cases.
It consists in the application of radiopaque markers (eg. gutta-percha spheres) on the patient’s prosthesis.
Then two radiological examinations are performed:
CT of patient’s jaw wearing the prosthesis;
CT of the prosthesis alone.
Due to the presence of the gutta-percha spheres in both exams, RealGUIDE software will be able to match the prosthesis to the patient’s anatomy automatically.
