General or specialty dental practices using cephalometric X-ray


Suitable for a wide range of indications, including implantology, periodontology, endodontics, orthodontics, and maxillofacial surgery, among others


The Explorer PRO is designed to combine precise 3D imaging, large image detail, low radiation exposure, diagnostics, and digital planning across all indications of modern dentistry. It features what is said to be the industry’s first retractable cephalometric X-ray arm that can expand when needed and retract when not in use. Its patient management system is designed for secure communication of data across multiple practice operatories and can be integrated into existing infrastructure. Multiple patient scans can be loaded onto the same screen and used for treatment presentation, and 3D image reports are easily saved to the patient’s record or transferred to a third party for analysis or lab fabrication. Its 3D viewer software allows for remote access for case analysis and features an extensive implant library and templates for airway and TMJ analysis.

*The How

The Explorer PRO is designed to provide an accurate 360º panoramic perspective from 523 to 1024 projected views. The 3D analysis function offers fields of view, including a 5 x 5 cm, 10 x 10 cm, 15 x 10 cm, and a single-pass 15 x 16 cm. The device also features “true” and “reconstructed” panorama modes. It utilizes a 0.3 mm focal spot, which the company says is one of the smallest in the industry. The Explorer also features small voxel sizes for clear, detailed image reproduction, and its low-dose, HD, and endo CT scan modes have scan times of 20 seconds or less as well as 14-second pano and 0.16-second ceph scan times.
