The Future of CBCT is Here

IBEX Innovations has transformed the quality of DRR images in CurveBeam‘s CubeVue Insta-X CBCT software.

CubeVue provides powerful visualisation tools to enhance dataset analysis by allowing the user to zoom, pan, and adjust window levels of 3D renderings and MPR views. The latest Insta-X upgrade generates digitally reconstructed radiographs created from the original CT data. These Insta-Xs are automatically generated when a scan is opened in CubeVue.

By combining unique elements of AI and classical image processing techniques, IBEX was able to vastly enhance the quality of Insta-X DRRs. IBEX’s approach significantly improved sharpness and bone detail whilst simultaneously reducing noise and artefacts, giving a much more balanced feel to the images.

Feedback from clinicians such as Mr. Matthew Solan, FRCS (Tr and Orth), MBBS, played a vital role in this project. Mr. Solan has spent years making use of high-quality weight-bearing digital radiographs as the first-choice investigation for patients. CurveBeam has sought to replace the need for this initial exam with Insta-X.

Mr. Solan comments:

“As an orthopaedic surgeon, I have found that CBCT provides me with a wealth of information to improve diagnosis, enhance patient understanding of their problems, and improve clinical care. The CT slice images, in coronal, axial, and sagittal planes, have been hugely useful from the first introduction of the technology.”

“Early Insta-X images were less ‘clear’ than the corresponding digital X-Rays. The latest enhanced Insta-X images are so good that I can now abandon digital radiography and enjoy ‘X-Ray and CT’ together for every patient. With more use of CBCT, in conjunction with ultrasound for soft tissue investigation, I expect my use of MRI to fall considerably and digital radiographs to no longer be required. The future is here.”
