Planmeca Ultra Low Dose™portocol enables quality images at a substantially reduced dose.

The problem: Making an accurate diagnosis while adhering to principles of ALDA, ALARA and the "Image Gently®" initiatives.

The solution: Planmeca Ultra Los Dose™

  • Allows clinicians to take a 3D image of a small volume size of the area of interest at half the patient dose of the standard 2D periapical image, enabling them to correctly diagnose and treat accordingly

  • The radiation dose is reduced on average 77 percent  without any statistical reduction in  image quality,* suggesting patient doses can be reduced without loss of diagnostic quality  

  • Technology based on intelligent 3D algorithms allows clinicians to choose the optimal balance between image quality and dose, based on the as low as diagnostically acceptable (ALADA) principle

  • Planmeca Ultra Low Dose can be used with all voxel sizes and imaging modes from low dose through endo mode

  • Proven to be ideal for many clinical cases in general dentistry, orthodontics, maxillofacial surgery, airway and sinus studies, and implant planning
