Don't be surprised if you find an odd device circling your head next time you go to the dentist.
This CT scan, called an I-CAT, is the newest technology to provide images of the mouth and jaw with less radiation than other CT units. The first office to bring the I-CAT to Lubbock is Dr. Joe Mayes, an orthodontist.
Dr. Mayes will be our guest Thursday in our segment HealthWise at Five to explain how this high-tech 3D scanner can identify a variety of problems...from TMJ to sleep disorders.
That's Thursday on NewsChannel 11 at 5.
