Precise & Sharp Digital Imaging On-site
BIDC is one of the few dental clinics in Bangkok with its own CT Scan machine on-site at BIDC building enable faster treatment diagnoses without the need of being referred to a secondary x-ray center.
Planmeca ProMax 3D concept performs everything from the minutest detail to full maxillofacial image. The possibility to select the imaging area according to the actual imaging need increases effectiveness and reduces the patient dose. Planmeca ProMax 3D family offers a solution for the most demanding imaging needs, producing various imaging sizes with one concept – an ideal imaging size for different maxillofacial applications is at hand at all times.
Immediate Accurate Dental Images For Dignoses
The direct deposit CSI semiconductor flat panel produces accurate, distortion-free images for 3D reconstruction. Unlike image intensifier sensors that use old vacuum tube technology and multi-step focusing, flat panels use single step image readouts with no geometric distortion, no loss of sensitivity, and therefore no need for frequent calibration yet providing accurate imaging.
Captured x-ray images are immediately sent to treatment rooms without any wait time for dentists diagnoses and treatment planning with patient. The digital images discards the need for conventional chemical base film processing.
Planmeca ProMax 3D concept is expressly designed to comply with the needs of modern surgical dentistry. The 3D CT Scan unit complies with a multitude of diagnostic requirements including endodontics, periodontics, orthodontics, implantology, dental and maxillofacial surgery, and TMJ analysis. With all the Planmeca ProMax 3D models CT machine, study volume sizes are selectable to meet diagnostic needs without excess radiation outside the area of interest.
Pulsed Exposures for Lower X-ray Radiation Dosage
During the scan, each image is made using a short X-ray pulse instead of continuous radiation. The total scanning time is 18 seconds, but the actual exposure time is only 3 - 12 seconds.
The technique reduces patient radiation dose considerably and forms a stroboscopic X-ray effect which, together with the shortened rotation scan (only 200 degrees), virtually eliminates artefacts, contributing to the outstanding image quality.
Radation safety is checked, recorded and measure for radiation safety and patient safety as part of JCI standards.
Romexis Software for Digitalized Treatment & Dental Planning
The Planmeca Romexis 3D Explorer, the 3D digital imaging acquisition software for Planmeca ProMax 3D CT Scan machine, enables flexible viewing in all three relevant projections: axial, coronal, and sagittal. The software incorporates a re-slicing feature, which enhances the projections and enables real-time three-dimensional viewing in the desired angle. A rendered 3D view provides a realistic overview of the anatomy.
