Suitable for radiologists and orthopaedic, otolaryngology and dentistry specialists, NewTom 7G lets you capture accurate information on bone tissues – micro-structures included – to gain an in-depth understanding of the overall clinical picture. Compared to conventional procedures, the system optimises analysis of treatment outcomes (by using low X-ray doses, always in proportion to build) and lowers costs. Automatisms optimise workflows and avoid the variability and uncertainty inherent in manual examination control, especially during patient positioning and actual exposure.
From in-depth detail to the big picture
With the arrival of 7G, NewTom Cone Beam technology examinations can be carried out on all areas of the body, including the spine, shoulder, and hip. System functions and automatisms adapt FOVs and X-ray doses to the patient's build (especially those of paediatric age). From a minimum of 4x4 cm to a maximum diameter of 29 cm, and a length that can be extended up to 62 cm, adaptive FOVs let users examine the area of interest or a portion of it. A resolution of up to 90 µm means small complex structures such as the inner ear can be analysed with precision.
Select the most suitable FOVs, also for large anatomical areas
NewTom 7G system automatisms allow for acquisition of an extended FOV on the horizontal plane. Developed to acquire bilateral hip images, the NewTom 7G can capture a 40x17cm FOV. The horizontally extended FOV allows comparative assessment of hip bones via reconstruction into a single volume. The acquisition will therefore show a single volume on which users can modify the display plane to better adapt to clinical needs.

NewTom 7G allows the acquisition of extended FOVs on the vertical (longitudinal) plane too. The length of the extended FOVs on this plane can be modulated: users can therefore select FOVs with lengths from 22 cm up to 62 cm. Extended FOVs allow better morphological assessment of long bones and extensive bone structures (e.g. spine).
Wide gantry and motor-driven patient table
In addition to a 77 cm gantry, the 7G can accommodate very heavy patients thanks to a bed with a load-bearing capacity of up to 215 kg. Lying-down patient positioning ensures simple, accurate alignment of the FOVs and makes results more certain by weighting X-ray exposure.
Broader diagnostic range
The NewTom 7G can perform numerous types of investigation, including those with intra-articular contrast agents (e.g. arthrograms with Cine-Scout positioning). A broad series of exams with dedicated protocols is available for all disciplines:
- Orthopaedics – osteo-articular study with multiplanar view
- Otorhinolaryngology – ear and airways volume analysis
- Dentistry, implant and orthognathic surgery – dental-maxillofacial and bilateral TMJ analysis
