New and Improved Planmed Verity CBCT Scanner Unveiled
Planmed, based in Helsinki, Finland, is releasing an upgraded new version of its popular Planmed Verity CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) extremity scanner. The system is intended for ortho, as well as head and neck imaging, and even advanced dental applications. It is CE marked in Europe and is now available wherever the mark applies.
While the new device looks much like its previous version, the major changes are on the inside, such as a new and improved detector, a new operating system, and a number of new features and applications. For instance, there’s now a greater ability to capture maxillofacial and ENT images with ease.
One nice feature is image stabilization called Planmeca CALM that corrects for patient movement, particularly useful in many population groups. It will also benefit these patients as they won’t have to undergo repeat scans that would deliver unnecessary extra radiation. To minimize radiation dosage in certain situations, the Planmeca Ultra Low Dose protocol is available that can create clinically excellent images while putting the patient in less danger.
