Flapless implants after tooth extractions.

Yes, a CT scan would show the bone structure. Also, 4.1 refers to the size of the implant and is a very common size.
I can't speak on the indication for bone grafting in your case, but I could clarify that 4.1 most likely suggests the diameter of the implants used, which are not considered mini implants. Straumann, for example, carries a 4.1 mm diameter implant that is used for many common applications in implant dentistry.
