Click for a brief tour of the Imaging Center

Baylor College of Dentistry's Oral and Maxillofacial Imaging Center offers sophisticated diagnostic imaging services to health professionals. An integral part of a nationally recognized oral health educational institution, this full-service imaging facility specializes in assessing conditions of the head and neck region.

The center can assist in the diagnostic workup of temporomandibular joint dysfunction, dental implant site assessment, orthodontics, craniofacial anomalies, salivary gland dysfunction, trauma and general pathology. There is no cost to the referring clinician for the services, as patients are charged directly at the time of consultation.

The center is equipped to provide directly acquired computed tomography (CT scan), 2-D and 3-D reformatted CT, conventional film tomography, plain film radiography (intraoral, cephalometric, hand/wrist, skull, sinus), panoramic radiography (including hybrid maxillofacial and scanographic images), contrast radiology (sialography), and digital photography.

Imaging CenterOrthodontic tracings and diagnostic models are available, as is magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), which is offered through a cooperative agreement. All imaging studies are accompanied by a written interpretive report dictated by faculty who are diplomates of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology.

Clinicians who wish to refer patients to the Oral and Maxillofacial Imaging Center may call (214) 828-8479 to schedule appointments. Referral forms, a current fee schedule and sample interpretive reports are available upon request. The fee schedule also lists the applicable CDT-1 (dental insurance) and CPT (medical insurance) procedure codes.
