AFP Imaging Corp, Elmsford, NY, introduces the NewTom VGi, featuring the latest technology in the NewTom family of cone beam 3D imaging equipment. The VGi offers new features including an increased field of view, improved patient positioning, additional modes with scan size and resolution options, and overall enhanced image quality. VGi is available in a fixed unit for offices, or in a mobile unit, making a mobile imaging center an option for any group practice or community.
With a 50% larger field of view, NewTom VGi captures a full volume of the dentomaxillofacial region, providing full cephlometric images. The VGi also incorporates a “High Resolution Zoom” mode that collimates the region of interest and captures images at twice the resolution of a standard scan. The redesigned patient positioning of VGi features a comfortable motorized chin rest and positioning lasers. These improvements stabilize positioning for clearer and better images.
When users employ the VGi’s data with third-party treatment planning software, bone surfaces are less prone to “holes” in volume reconstructions. The VGi images are now enhanced with greater contrast and less noise. According to the company, artifacts and scatter are negligible.
