3Shape X1 4-in-1 CBCT scanner released at IDS 2015
3Shape, a manufacturer of 3-D scanners and CAD/CAM software, presented the 3Shape X1, its new four-in-one CBCT scanner today at the International Dental Show (IDS) in Cologne, Germany.
The 3Shape X1 enables CBCT, panoramic, cephalometric and face scanning in one system.
The 3Shape X1 four-in-one CBCT scanner will join the 3Shape line of CAD/CAM dental solutions that includes: the TRIOS intraoral scanner, an extensive range of benchtop lab scanners, and a complete portfolio of CAD/CAM dental software.
3Shape X1 outputs all images in standard DICOM format to enable open export to any software. Dental professionals can also take advantage of the 3Shape X1 deep integration within the entire line of 3Shape CAD/CAM dental solutions.
“CBCT imaging is becoming an essential component in digital dentistry. When integrated with digital workflows, CBCT scans bring unparalleled insight to both diagnostics and treatment. The addition of the 3Shape X1 CBCT scanner to our product portfolio will enable dentists and labs to seamlessly work within the complete 3Shape ecosystem of digital dentistry solutions,” said Flemming Thorup, president and CEO of 3Shape.
“When we first set out to design 3Shape X1, we consulted extensively with dentists. Their biggest concern was, of course, performance, in terms of image quality and dose, but patient comfort was a close second. With the upcoming release of 3Shape X1, we have created a four-in-one CBCT scanning solution that truly combines industry-leading performance with unheard of patient comfort. We are very excited about the benefits 3Shape X1 will bring to dentists and their patients,” he added.
In addition to new proprietary technology that reduces dose, the 3Shape X1 will introduce industry firsts like ScanComfort technology. ScanComfort technology improves image accuracy, while eliminating the need for the uncomfortable fixation of a patient’s head.
3Shape X1 is also being built in a distinctly Scandinavian design to create a modern and calming practice space. It includes distinctive design features, such as ambient lighting to reduce patient stress and an all-natural, easy-to-clean, wooden chinrest for the patient.
