Unlike its multi-slice CT (MSCT) counterpart, CBCT technology can generate ultra-high definition volumetric images of bone tissues, with ‘native’ isotropic voxel resolution, non-overlapping sections and fewer artefacts, the firm adds. ‘A single cone beam scan, instead of a fan beam spiral scan, shortens examination times and considerably reduces X-ray exposure with respect to other CT technologies, while cutting costs significantly.’
‘The 5G XL opens the door to radiologists and specialist physicians who need the best possible diagnostic capabilities in ultimate quality 2-D and 3-D. With a wide native 21x19 cm FOV, the 5G XL is perfectly suited to an extensive range of disciplines, such as orthopaedics, otorhinolaryngology, maxillofacial surgery and dentistry. Furthermore, thanks to its motorised patient table and open gantry, the equipment is ideal for post-surgery or traumatised patients, reducing movement to a minimum.’
Reports the ‘outstanding diagnostic quality of the 5G XL’ the firm points out that this proves useful in multiple medical fields. ‘In addition to examination of dental-maxillofacial pathologies, it is also possible to examine the internal ear, fully analyse airways and maxillary sinuses and diagnose chronic or traumatic pathologies involving bones, joints and the spinal column for more in-depth orthopaedic investigation, also in emergency rooms.’
NewTom’s NNT software manages and processes the necessary data, from 3-D to 2-D and X-ray video (CineX). Both 3-D and 2-D images, and the CineX function, can be distributed using the NNT Viewer software version, or printed in 1:1 scale to produce personalised reports. Plus, the company adds, ‘compatibility with other surgical planning and surgical navigation software and hospital management systems is always guaranteed by the DICOM 3.0 interface (IHE).’
