Technology, techshmology

Being high tech means nothing if it doesn’t help people.   This week, one of our technologies might have saved someone’s life.

We’ve seen carotid artery blockages before on people by carefully analyzing our digital panoramic scans.   Never before have we found this on such a young person!

This unexpected finding of a calcification or sclerosis was brought to the person’s cardiologist’s attention and he can now be  evaluated and possibly treated.  Such blockages, called Atheromas, can cause a lack of blood flow to the brain resulting in a ‘TIA” (transient ischemic attack) or worse, a piece could break away causing a Stroke!

Technology works when it can help keep people healthy and prevent disease.
