Planmed Vertity CBCT MaxScan CT Systems Orthopedic Imaging

 

March 12, 2014 — Planmed, a provider of mammography and orthopedic imaging solutions, added a maxillofacial imaging option to its Planmed Verity CBCT extremity scanner. Maxillofacial imaging option MaxScan received CE marking in December 2013.

In addition to extremities, jaw, teeth, maxillofacial area, sinuses, temporomandibular joints (TMJ), orbits and airways can now be studied with Planmed Verity. The benefits of the scanner include low imaging dose, high image quality and patient comfort.

Isotropic resolution of 200 ?m, combined with advanced image enhancement algorithms, shows even the tiniest bone structures clearly. The 3-D information provided by MaxScan is more informative than that of traditional X-ray or multi slice computed tomography (MSCT) devices with larger, non-isotropic voxels.

MaxScan imaging option of Planmed Verity is designed to provide maximum patient comfort. It features a lean-in sitting position and an open gantry design.

Compact, stand-alone and mobile Planmed Verity can fit into almost any existing X-ray room and can be easily sited even side by side with other imaging equipment. With adjustable, soft surfaced gantry and dedicated positioning trays Planmed Verity provides versatile patient positioning and optimized patient comfort.
