Safer head and neck imaging
‘The engineering evolution of the NewTom range has delivered an ultra-modern, ultra-technological, ultra-competitive device – the most complete CBCT,’ the device manufacturer reports.
‘NewTom VGi evo performs 3D imaging, panoramic imaging, teleradiography and 2D sequential imaging. The device introduces a new image chain, which includes features that increase standard CBCT performances, such as an enlarged flat panel sensor, with an improved signal/noise ratio and a rotating anode generator with a 0.3 mm focal spot.’
With 51 scan modes, NewTom VGi evo adapts to specific needs of different clinical applications. The FOV range goes from 5x5 cm to 24x19cm, recommended for Head & Neck applications. NewTom also introduces SHARP 2D technology, enabling the VGi evo to generate a complete set of 2D images (AP, PA and LL cephalometric images), the manufacturer explains, adding: ‘It also features the CineX function, a dynamic sequence of 2D images for analysing swallowing, salivary ducts, TMJ with contrast and flexion and extension of spine.’
To protect users, the device uses pulsed emission that activates the X-ray source only when needed and a total exposure for a standard exam takes only 1.8 seconds. Further dose reduction is achieved by using VGi evo’s new Eco Scan mode, available for all FOV, combined with SafeBeam technology.
