Redefining digital image quality. X-ray images with ORTHOPHOS XG units are now easier to interpret than ever before.
Software algorithms reduce metal artifacts in the DVT volume and improve image quality without increasing the radiation dose (MARS). In the area of 2D panoramic imaging, ASTRA provides brilliant, high-contrast images and the additional small exposure volumes and high-definition mode in ORTHOPHOS XG 3D allow even greater flexibility of use.
MARS reduces metal artifacts
The ORTHOPHOS XG 3D combination unit includes several improvements with "Release 2":
Just like GALILEOS, ORTHOPHOS XG 3D now also works in 3D mode with MARS (Metal Artifact Reduction Software). MARS is an algorithm which automatically detects problematic metal artifacts and eliminates their shadowing and reflexes as much as possible. The result is a clear image which makes diagnosis easier for the dentist. MARS optimizes image quality without additional work or an increase in radiation dose.
ASTRA images for a more reliable diagnosis
All the new x-ray units in the ORTHOPHOS XG family with CsI sensor work with a software algorithm, which greatly improves the image quality of 2D panoramic and ceph images: ASTRA (Anatomically STructured Reconstruction Algorithm) generates a structured image with higher contrasts and no problematic edge artifacts. ASTRA's new image quality provides the ideal basis for a reliable diagnosis.
Added volume for optimized endodontic treatments
ORTHOPHOS XG 3D can now depict a smaller volume of 5 cm diameter x 5.5 cm height. This smaller volume is also especially well suited for endodontics because the smaller section not only minimizes radiation exposure for the patient, but also speeds up the diagnostic process.
With this smaller image volume, the practitioner can also use the new HD mode if required. During this process, the voxel size automatically switches to 100 µm. This higher image resolution is then always indicated when the smallest details matter.
Optional high-definition mode for increased diagnostic reliability
The optional high-definition (HD) mode now available with ORTHOPHOS XG 3D produces 500 single exposures instead of 200 in a single scan, from which the 3D x-ray image is computed. The resulting higher granularity and contrast makes it easier for the practitioner to make a diagnosis. The touch panel of the ORTHOPHOS XG 3D allows you to switch the HD mode on or off at any time.
