Planmeca introduces a new product for the acknowledged Planmeca ProMax 3D concept. The Planmeca ProMax 3D Mid provides an extended selection of 3D volume sizes combined with traditional 2D panoramic and cephalometric imaging.
Planmeca ProMax 3D Mid offers the user an optimal volume size for every application requiring 3D imaging; E.g. for endodontics requiring high resolution, implantology requiring images with a smaller Field of View, and for orthodontics requiring large image sizes. The volume sizes range from 34 x 42 mm to 16 x 16 cm. This wide selection of volume sizes allows optimising the imaging area according to specific diagnostic task – always complying with the best practices of dentistry and the ALARA (as low as reasonably achievable) principle to minimise radiation.
Additionally, the Planmeca ProMax 3D Mid offers new kind of panoramic imaging. The standard panoramic imaging program is optimised to expose only the teeth area reducing patient dose. Optionally, the temporomandibular joints can be imaged with a program in which the TMJ imaging angles can be adjusted like in regular TMJ programs.
“The Planmeca ProMax 3D Mid clearly demonstrates our best practices in imaging. It provides the most advanced visualisation of patient anatomies for a variety of diagnostics needs – never compromising the important principle of minimising the radiation dose when feasible,” explains Mr Auvo Asikainen, Vice President of X-ray Division at Planmeca Oy.
Planmeca ProMax 3D Mid is based on the Planmeca ProMax technology. The existing products in Planmeca’s 3D concept are Planmeca ProMax 3D s, ideal for applications where a smaller field of view is sufficient, Planmeca ProMax 3D for general 3D applications with a field size covering the mandible and maxilla, and Planmeca ProMax 3D Max including variety of field sizes from single tooth to whole maxillofacial area.
