Company incorporates an advanced high definition sensor into its Cone Beam 3D solution.

DES PLAINES, Illinois--Gendex launched the GXCB-500 HD at the 2010 Chicago Dental Society Midwinter Meeting.

Along with the new High Definition feature, the GXCB-500 HD offers scan flexibility, fast workflow, and integration capabilities.

"We understand that dentists want and need radiographic options that help them better treat their patients and follow ALARA," said Mark Hillebrandt, director of product management for Gendex. "Therefore, we are pleased to offer the GXCB-500 HD which delivers this and more. It allows clinicians to select 2D pans or 3D scans, to choose scan size options designed to work with certain procedures, and lets them blend technologies for a wide variety of treatment options."

High Definition "HD" in the product name stands for "High Definition" image quality as defined by the precise i-CAT-powered 3D scans and the image quality of its 2D panoramic radiographs using patented i-pan image capture technology.

The GXCB-500 HD has an adjustable 3D medium field of view that can be sized from as large as 8 x 14 cm to as small as 2 x 8 cm. This allows for great flexibility of treatment to cover a host of procedures from TMJ to implants to endo.

Along with the ability to reconstruct a pan from the 3D scan, the new GXCB-500 HD includes a traditional, low-dose, high-end 2D panoramic. This $40,000 value advantage is built into the unit.

Time is a valuable commodity in the dental office. With the GXCB-500 HD, clinicians can scan and reconstruct in as little as 30 seconds then plan immediately. The GXCB-500 HD allows doctors to have a patient in the chair and a plan on the screen in only a few minutes.

With the demand for high-tech treatment applications increasing, doctors can benefit from the GXCB-500 HD's open software architecture, which allows integration with specialized restoration, digital impression, and CAD/CAM planning programs to gain more precise, reliable restorative, and surgical results.

The GXCB-500 HD utilizes Cone Beam 3D technology from i-CAT to deliver its clarity, flexibility, and speed in imaging.
