First 3D Panoramic X-ray Imaging Unit for the Isle of Wight
Islanders keen to learn that the island’s main hospital has just installed a new digital 3D panoramic X-ray imaging system, the ‘Planmeca ProMax 3D MID’, from Gloucestershire-based independent medical equipment supplier Xograph Healthcare.
The new ProMax 3D MID is an extremely compact system taking up no more space than a conventional panoramic X-ray unit. It can meet routine and advanced panoramic imaging requirements, provide cephalometric imaging whilst majoring on its core speciality: cone beam CT (CBCT) of the skull including jaws, dentition, sinuses, airways and the inner ear.
The Planmeca ProMax X-ray imaging system is wheelchair friendly and reduces the feeling of claustrophobia exhibited in some patients due to the open face-to-face positioning;
Amanda Shaw, Superintendant Radiographer at St Mary’s Hospital said: “We are very pleased to be the first hospital in the south of England to have the ProMax 3D MID X-ray imaging system. The Radiographers are looking forward to fully utilising the equipment’s huge range of clinical applications including imaging for implants and facial 3D rendering.”
Simon Pike, Product Manager for Dental Imaging at Xograph Healthcare said: “I am so pleased that St. Marys have purchased this unit, as panoramic imaging and cephalometry performed with the ProMax is even easier and more accurate than ever before. The unit includes standard panoramic imaging as well as advanced panoramic modes giving the option for imaging with improved interproximal and orthogonality of dentition. The system is also able to limit the irradiated dental region in both the horizontal and vertical axis so greatly reducing the dose to the patient.”
