Imaging

The Planmeca ProMax 3D Mid X-ray unit uses conical beam volumetric tomography (CBVT) to produce three-dimensional X-ray images that can be used for evaluation of dentomaxillofacial, ear, nose and throat anatomy, as well as other cranial anatomy.

In the CBVT, a cylindrical volume is captured in an image processing. The data consists of hundreds of images taken from different directions and cover a certain preprogrammed target area. Images can be viewed in three dimensions with the image processing program Planmeca Romexis

Specifications
