Dental CBCT X-Ray Unit Compliance Test

Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) x-ray units that are registered in Western Australia must undergo compliance testing once every 2 years. This is a requirement under the Radiation Safety Act (WA) 1975.

We test all brands of CBCT x-ray units including Carestream, Planmeca, Sirona, Acteon, KaVo, Imaging Sciences International, NewTom and more.

Dental CBCT machines include panoramic-style systems that have 3D reconstruction capabilities, as well as dedicated head CT scanners.
