SICAT Implant – Getting started. Import of DICOM Data & General Navigation

Learn in this course how to use the basic functions of the intuitive software workflow.

The course aims to provide you with a quick introduction to the proven user interface.
In addition to importing DICOM data and adjusting gray values, we will show you how to optimize the visualization in the software individually for your purpose. Use existing CBCT data without the need to convert these.

Finally, learn how to navigate through the software and how to optimally use the different views.

After this course, you will be able to navigate the software self-sufficiently and you are ready for future 3D implant planning cases.

Yes, it is possible to import more than one data set for a patient. It is possible to add the data to an existing patient record for this patient or to create a new patient record.
If the display of the volume is insufficient, you can adjust the gray values of the volume. Only adjust the gray values if the representation of the volume is insufficient in all views. It may be sufficient to temporarily adjust the brightness and contrast of the 2D views to improve the display or highlight certain anatomical structures. In addition, the display of the 3D view can be adjusted.
Yes, it is possible to adjust the volume alignment for all views by rotating the volume around the three main axes. This may be necessary in the following cases: - Non-optimal positioning of the patient during the 3D X-ray scan, - Alignment according to the application, for example alignment of the axial slices parallel to the Frankfurt horizontal or parallel to the occlusal plane, - Optimizing the panoramic view If you adjust the volume alignment in SICAT Implant, SICAT Implant adopts your settings for your currently opened planning.
