In an ongoing effort to provide you with the best care possible, our practice had been employing the KODAK 9000 3D Extraoral Imaging System. In September of 2018 we upgraded this imaging system to a J. Morita Veraview X800. In endodontics, clarity is paramount. Morita's x-ray units show even the most delicate structures allowing the evaluation of root fractures, fourth canals, apical lesions, resorption and much more.
With the Veraview X800, MORITA has redefined top-class X-ray combination systems. Outstanding image quality for panoramic and 3D images ensures a precise and reliable diagnosis even in the most demanding cases.
The extremely high resolution of more than 2.5 LP/mm at 10% MTF and a voxel size of 80 μm show even the smallest details. In addition, a wide range of innovative functions, e.g. to avoid artifacts or for automatic image optimization (based on real data), provide the greatest possible reliability in treatment planning.
Veraview X800 also sets new standards with respect to the ALARA principle. Related features include 11 exposure fields, automatic "Dose Reduction Function," and the child setting. These features help to achieve the lowest radiation dose possible while maintaining exceptional image quality. Another unrivaled feature is the design and operational functionality of the Veraview X800, for which it received the IF Gold Award. Overall, the Veraview X800 sets a new and unique standard: “Total Performance Imaging". It is the combination system of choice for a sustainable increase in diagnostic competence, diagnostic reliability, and treatment success in the dental practice.
The three-dimensional technology allows Dr. Michel to better visualize our patients’ dentition, without having to send patients for radiology scans. This unique “two-in-one” system (3D and panoramic) is well suited for complex diagnostic, restorative, surgical, and endodontic procedures.
Here is a little video that demonstrates some of the valuable information that can be seen on a CBCT scan versus traditional radiographs.
