The multifunctional X-ray unit has 3D, panoramic and cephalometric capabilities.
J. MORITA USA announced the availability of Veraview X800 in the Canadian market. Released earlier this year in the United States, Veraview X800 is a new multifunctional X-ray unit with 3D, panoramic and cephalometric capabilities. Completely redesigned, this unit is loaded with practical, unique and refined features that are said to produce stunning images for a thorough evaluation.
Veraview X800 offers progressive technology that's engineered to automatically set the optimal X-ray beam angle, horizontal for 3D or raised 5° for 2D panoramic images. This slight upward projection for panoramic imaging is designed to enhance image quality by eliminating potential super imposition of anatomical structures, including the shadow from the base of the skull and hard palate over the maxillary teeth. For 3D imaging, a horizontal beam minimizes distortion and reduces metal artifacts. The X800 unit, therefore, self-adjusts to optimize image quality during both acquisition techniques.
CBCT imaging clarity has also been improved with a reduced voxel size of 80 μm and a resolution of 2.5 LP/mm. This value is an outstanding image clarity achievement for a multifunctional unit. The X800 offers up to 11 fields of view (FOV) covering dental and maxillofacial areas. This model also offers Morita’s completely exclusive 3D Reuleaux Full Arch FOV. The unique shape for this FOV closely matches the shape of the natural dental arch, therefore reducing dose by excluding areas outside the region of interest.
An additional image enhancement feature is Morita's unique zoom reconstruction capability. If a larger field of view is acquired and there's a need to increase the resolution in a selected part of the scan, then this region can be reconstructed at the highest resolution of 80 μm without repeating the scan, thus saving the patient from
unnecessary retakes. In addition, two 3D exposure modes are said to offer more control and flexibility regarding acquisition time and resolution with 360° or 180° rotation.
The X800 is said to have excellent utility in many dental applications and is an asset for dental procedures in oral and maxillofacial surgery, implantology, periodontics, endodontics, orthodontics and general dentistry. Other features include partial panoramic/cephalometric images, extraoral bitewing module, adjustable chinrest height for easy and accurate patient positioning, and i-Dixel 2.0 3D imaging software with a DICOM export function.
