Planmeca has unveiled a new product for the Planmeca ProMax 3D concept. To read more about Planmeca, go to Planmeca.The Planmeca ProMax 3D Mid provides an extended selection of 3-D volume sizes combined with traditional 2-D panoramic and cephalometric imaging.Planmeca ProMax 3D Mid offers the user a volume size for applications that require 3-D imaging (e.g., endodontics that require high resolution, implantology that requires images with a smaller field of view, and for orthodontics that require large image sizes). The volume sizes range from 34 x 42 mm to 16 x 16 cm. This selection of volume sizes allows optimizing the imaging area according to specific diagnostic task. This complies with the best practices of dentistry and the ALARA (as low as reasonably achievable) principle to minimize radiation. Additionally, the Planmeca ProMax 3D Mid offers a new kind of panoramic imaging. The standard panoramic imaging program is optimized 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 as in regular TMJ programs.“The Planmeca ProMax 3D Mid clearly demonstrates our best practices in imaging,” explained Auvo Asikainen, vice president of X-ray division at Planmeca Oy."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."Planmeca ProMax 3D Mid is based on the Planmeca ProMax technology. The existing products in Planmeca’s 3-D concept are Planmeca ProMax 3D's, intended for applications in which a smaller field of view is sufficient, Planmeca ProMax 3D for general 3-D applications with a field size that covers the mandible and maxilla, and Planmeca ProMax 3D Max that includes a variety of field sizes from single tooth to whole maxillofacial area.For more information, go to comment on this product, go to
