We're located in the Farrer House building, at Level 1, 24 Collins St. Melbourne. We are a 5-minute walk from Parliament train station and directly in front of the Collins St/Spring St Tram Stop.
Clayray uses the J-Morita Accuitomo-80 CBCT scanner, the leader in its class to deliver extremely high-resolution Cone Beam CT at low doses of radiation. The “viewer file” that comes with it is called the OneVolumeViewer (OVV). It is a program that requires no software installation and is helpful for the referring clinician to investigate the scan in more detail for complex cases.
With OneVolumeViewer, the clinician can go through the axial, coronal and sagittal slices and even adjust the planes to diagnose the clinical problem. OVV also allows for curved reconstruction through the patient’s jaw to produce contiguous cross sections at 1 mm intervals. The OVV also features the ability to place virtual simulated implants within the scan volume.
If you would like some assistance in learning to use the software, simply call the practice to speak to one of our radiographers.
For patients undergoing guided dental implant surgery, we can acquire the entire arch of the relevant area in a single CBCT scan with the radiographic guide in place. These scans are then processed to output DICOM files that are needed by the implant guide manufacturing company. Often, we are happy to assist by communicating directly with the implant guide company regarding any specific needs they may have.
If you require separate scanning of the radiographic guide, simply note it down on the request form, or call our practice to speak with one of our radiographers.
InteleViewer™ is a third party software used by most of the major medical imaging companies in Australia. It is a feature-rich desktop application that allows the user to access, view and manipulate ConeBeam CT volume data sets. This means that you can view the axials, sagittal and coronal slices and even adjust their angles.
The application also allows you to view the Cone Beam CT work-ups that we produce for a quick overview of your patient’s scan. You can then export these work-ups as JPEG images to import into your patient’sdental file or share them with other treating clinicians.
By setting up an account with us, you will receive notifications when we have scanned your patient at our clinic and when the radiology report becomes available.
Your patients' safety is of the utmost importance to us. That’s why we encourage our clinicians to provide as much information as possible on the request form so we can make the best decisions in selecting scanning parameters.
We perform all our examinations in accordance withthe ALARA (as low as reasonably achievable) principle. All our OPG, Ceph and Cone Beam CT scanning machines are serviced regularly to comply with state accreditation regulations and to help maintain the radiation dose administered.
At Clayray we adhere to the ALARA principle, that is to provide our services and make sure that the radiation dose delivered is as low as reasonably possible to deliver a diagnostic scan. CBCT scans in general deliver doses that range from a few days to a week of background radiation.
DICOM files are the raw files that are produced by most medical imaging devices. We provide DICOM files for all our implant CBCT cases so that you can import them into third party implant planning software such as Co-Diagnostics, Bluesky Bio and Simplant. The DICOM files can also be imported into HORUS for viewing on macOS computers.
Yes they do. All of our scans can be viewed in the provided viewer file (onevolume viewer). This is a lightweight viewer that requires no installation and runs only on windows OS. The viewer file allows you to look through the scan volume, adjust the contrast and brightness as well as angles of the CBCT scan.
Yes, all of our scans, CBCT workups and reports are available online via Inteleviewer. To learn more, go here.
