Dr. Michael Young
The Planmeca ProMax 3D family includes four different units: Planmeca ProMax 3D for general 3D applications with a field size covering the mandible and maxilla, Planmeca ProMax 3D s for applications where a smaller field of view is sufficient, Planmeca ProMax 3D Mid with a wide volume range covering everything between a single tooth and the whole facial region, and Planmeca ProMax 3D Max including field sizes from a single tooth to the entire skull region.
In addition to their wide selection of volume sizes and optimal patient doses, the Planmeca ProMax 3D family units are known for their simple and effortless patient positioning offering an unrestricted view of the patient and easy side entry access. Planmeca now introduces to the units a new adjustable and autoclavable patient support that helps to keep the patient better in place and thus also improves patient comfort.
Planmeca’s user interface designers have also designed a completely new graphic user interface to all Planmeca’s 2D and 3D X-ray units. The big interface guides the user to a fluent workflow with clear and explicit 3D texts and preprogrammed target sites and exposure values. “Our in-house designers and usability specialists constantly develop our units in order to ensure perfect usability and a smooth workflow without any unnecessary steps,” says Mr Timo Müller, Vice President of X-ray division at Planmeca Oy.
In addition to these improvements, Planmeca introduces a new panoramic imaging modality to Planmeca ProMax 3D Max and a new, bigger sensor for Planmeca ProMax 3D Mid, thanks to which the biggest volume size generated by the unit is now up to 20x18 cm. This also signifies a considerable improvement to the image quality as well as a larger target area. At the same time, the size of the SmartPan panoramic image increases.
A new sensor generation is also taken into use in Planmeca ProMax 3D and Planmeca ProMax 3D s units, so the improvement in image quality also applies to these units.
