LED Medical Diagnostics Inc., through LED Dental, has announced the launch of the Rayscan Alpha Plus, a next-generation extraoral imaging system from Ray Company, a former Samsung Electronics subsidiary.

Clinicians can use the Rayscan Alpha Plus to capture high-resolution panoramic, cephalometric, and cone-beam computed tomography images. The panoramic modality allows for a variety of 2-D panoramic examinations, including standard pano and segmented pano acquisitions, in addition to an extraoral bitewing feature.

The CBCT modality of the Rayscan Alpha Plus offers several features that allow practitioners to customize examinations to their patients. First, the Alpha Plus uses a light-guided field-of-view that simplifies patient positioning to reduce errors and retakes. The desired field-of-view is superimposed on the patient’s face, allowing the dental professional to see the exact area being scanned in relation to the patient’s actual anatomy, ensuring accurate image acquisition.

Furthermore, the light-guided positioning feature is enhanced with the system's Free FOV (Free Field-of-View) technology, which makes the field-of-view completely customizable from 4 cm by 3 cm to 16 cm by 10 cm. While many systems on the market require the clinician to choose one of several preset field-of-view options, the Rayscan Alpha Plus allows practitioners to collimate the field-of-view to any size, limiting radiation exposure to the smallest area possible, while still acquiring the needed anatomy.

The CBCT modality delivers voxel resolutions as small as 70 micrometers, making 3-D images from the Rayscan Alpha Plus among the highest resolution in the industry. New proprietary algorithms allow for images to be reconstructed in as little as 4.9 seconds.

Finally, the optional cephalometric module is available in either scanning or one-shot options, with the one-shot module acquiring images in less than one second to further reduce image distortion and lessen radiation dose.

“We could not be more excited to launch the RAYSCAN Alpha Plus in conjunction with our partners at Ray Company,” said David Gane, DDS, CEO of LED Medical Diagnostics. “Over the last few years, Ray Company has illustrated a commitment to developing technologies that not only deliver exceptional image quality, but also integrate innovative features that make acquiring images more intuitive, delivering an improved user experience while reducing patient dose.”

“The Rayscan Alpha Plus is the culmination of years of development and optimization, relying on clinical feedback to build a system that not only produces outstanding images, but utilizes next-generation technologies to make oral health care a simpler, more patient-friendly process,” said Kevin Cho, president of Ray America.

The Rayscan Alpha Plus is available through LED Dental. For more information, call (844) 952-7327 or visit leddental.com.
