3shape_x1-cbct3Shape, Copenhagen, Denmark, announced that its X1 4-in-1 CBCT scanner has been awarded the Red Dot Design Award, an international distinction that recognizes high design quality.

The 3Shape X1 4-in-1 CBCT scanner provides CBCT, panoramic, face scan, and cephalometric imaging. In addition, it features motion compensation technology that eliminates the need of patient head-fixation and a Dynamic FOV that, together, improve image accuracy and reduce dose, according to the company. The X1’s design incorporates reactive mood-enhancing ambient lighting, carbon fiber, milled aluminum parts, and wooden handles and chin rest for a better patient experience during scanning.

This year, the Red Dot’s international expert panel of designers, design professors, and specialist journalists assessed entries from 54 countries, with the X1 winning the award for its category.
