Digital Volume Tomography (DVT)

Insight View into the Third Dimension - the DVT

Using three-dimensional dental volume tomography (DVT) - currently the most advanced X-ray technology — even the finest anatomical structures in the oral cavity can be seen, for a safe diagnosis and planning of treatment.

Successful treatment inside a patient's mouth presupposes a precise diagnosis. This is achieved faster and more accurately in many cases by means of dental digital volume tomography (DVT). This revolutionary X-ray technology provides high-resolution images of dental structures in three dimensions. Compared to a conventional X-ray image with its 2D representation, 3D images also show the spatial distribution and are therefore an ideal supplement in diagnostic radiology.

In the dental surgery, 3D images using DVT provide detailed views of dental tissues that make even exceptional details visible. Viewing is possible from every angle so that it becomes possible to undertake a virtual journey through the patient's mouth. The information provided not only improves diagnosis, but is also the basis of a more successful treatment.

More safety prior to surgery

Patients benefit from a 3D image, for instance, before placing an implant. It allows, for example, a better, in many cases indeed the first opportunity to evaluate bone quantity and its quality as well as the simulation of implant placement.

DVT technology provides further advantages in endodontics, etc, with a detailed examination of root anatomy and prior to surgical procedures, such as in the extraction of wisdom teeth, or in a root-end resection.

Digital volume tomography is based on computer tomography (CT); however, compared to CT, radiation exposure is reduced by up to 95% and images obtained are usually more meaningful. Image recording takes only a few seconds. An X-ray video is recorded in real-time from which 3D images are produced as if the dentist could freely rotate in his hands and observe the part of the jaw under examination. The results can be evaluated immediately in the dental surgery.

The advantages of 3D X-rays:

  • More accurate diagnosis: 3D images provide an accurate representation of dental structures which allows a more precise diagnosis. Unequalled high resolution.
  • Selective, quick treatment: A reliable diagnosis allows for a selective action, such as when exploring impacted teeth, jaw cysts and implants. Neighbouring structures can be spared, less invasive surgical methods can be applied.
  • Safe treatment: Prevention of nerve injury and sinus inflammation after implantation due to determining and planning the position more accurately. Nerve injury in wisdom tooth extraction can be virtually eliminated.


In what cases are the costs of DVT covered by insurance?

The cost of DVT is normally covered both by private insurance and by health benefit plans. The statutory health insurance system does not yet cover digital volume tomography.

Invoicing is carried out as stipulated in the valid German statutory scale of fees for physicians (GOÄ) in the same way as that for a CT scan. This depends on the question of the diagnosis and its level of difficulty. In the case of planning extensive implants, this is higher than with a preoperative depiction of a jaw cyst.


DVT diagnoses usually cost between €150 und €300.

New, patent-pending technology by Morita

In examination areas having a diameter of 100 mm, the new, unique Veraviewepocs 3DR100 system from Morita replaces the typical cylindrical shape with a new, convex triangular shape: the Reuleaux triangle.

As a result, the device has a better fit to the anatomical shape of the dental arch and reduces the effective dose because during the X-ray it excludes the areas outside the study area and shows the upper and/or lower jaw completely.


X-ray areas for a variety of clinical indications

Veraviewepocs 3D R100 offers a total of six radiographic areas from 40 x 40 mm up to 100 x 80 mm for various diagnostic requirements. In the sizes of 100 x 50 mm Ø and 100 x 80 mm Ø, the X-ray depicts the dental arch in the form of a Reuleaux triangle , thus optimizing the illustration of the upper and/or lower jaw in comparison to a round 100-mm size. The X-ray system provides small and medium X-ray areas for endodontic diagnosis, periodontics, implants, locating sources of infection and general dental procedures.

The blue line shows that the entire dental arch is depicted corresponding to Ø 100mm.


The display of the dental arch in Reuleaux triangle format, the reduced effective dose and the exceptionally sharp images are ideal pre-requisites for implant planning and oral surgery.
