SECAUCUS, New Jersey--Vatech America, a supplier of dental digital radiography and conebeam CT equipment, software, and services has announced receipt of FDA approval for the PaX-i line of digital X-ray systems.

The PaX-i from Vatech offers orthodontic specialists a solution for a dedicated two-sensor pan + ceph unit by combining more than 18 panoramic programs to include extraoral bitewings and five cephalometric programs in one unit.

The “i” in PaX-i stands for innovation, which refers to the 10 years of accumulated experience of Vatech in the field of integrated dental diagnostic imaging equipment. The PaX-i line offers two types of cephalometric Imaging options, the SC scanning type and the OP one-shot panel type versions.

The PaX-i applies a sensitive flat panel X-ray detector (FPXD sensor) to its one-shot panel ceph imaging unit to render image quality with a short X-ray exposure time (0.9 seconds) in an effort to reduce radiation dose and eliminate motion artifact from patient movement. This product is optimized for the dental diagnostic imaging needs of orthodontists, as well as of general dental practitioners. Its compact size and lightweight design features a small footprint and simple installation.
