New: DVT in Flensburg

The Sprengel & Klebe OMFS practice is celebrating their 25 years' existence by acquiring an ultra-modern DVT unit. Precise implant planning and diagnostics of the entire facial skull are possible with the helf of 3-D imaging.

With its exact three-dimensional recording and presentation, digital volume tomography (DVT) surpasses the classical X-ray and is on a par with computer tomography (CT), but with substantially less radiation exposure. „For dental and maxillofacial x-ray diagnostics, the new examination procedure provides a meaningful three-dimensional representation of the region that we can evaluate ourselves at the computer monitor in our practice“, explains the oral surgeon Dr. Hans-Werner Klebe. Klebe and Dr. Sprengel, his partner in the practice, gave themselves the € 200,000 device for the 25-year anniversary of their practice - for the benefit of the entire region north of the canal and Southern Denmark. „We acquired the DVT unit at the request of several colleagues. These professional dental and oral surgeons are glad to have this precise and modern diagnostic tool close by. They transfer their patients to us for DVT diagnostics and treat them on the basis of the results of the exposures“, says Dr. Sprengel about the traditionally good cooperation. 

For also OMFS specialists know that many patients up north cannot go to Hamburg or Lübeck, even when it is a question of their own health. The advantages are obvious for the oral and maxillo-facial surgeon Sprengel: „The DVT unit constitutes a crucial improvement of the precision in implantology, improves the view of teeth that are displaced in the jaw and is especially suitable for displaying bone defects that arise through cysts, tumors and infections."

The examination with the DVT device is carried out in the Sprengel & Klebe OMFS practice and takes 25 seconds. During the exposure, an X-ray tube and an image intensifier with a connected CCD camera circle once around the patient's head on a movable arm. During this time 200 individual exposures are made in a 10 by 15 centimeter format. They are digitized online by the camera and are transmitted to a controlling computer. Three-dimensional images are then created with the help of a mathematical algorithm, as is the case for CT. Since these computing processes can be repeated as often as required, it is possible to evaluate the sets of raw data with regard to different questions, without having to make new exposures. Well-informed patients and colleagues value these advantages of DVT. Says Dr. Klebe: „At the Lübeck Ostsee Institut, the resonance from the recently installed DVT exceeded all expectations.“ (Christiane Visbeck)
