The Scatter Reduction Technology (SRT™) from Gendex, Hatfield, Pa, has been awarded the Pride Institute’s Best of Class Technology Award for 2013.
SRT image optimization technology is part of the company’s GXDP-700TM Cone Beam 3D system and can deliver 3D scans with high clarity and detail around scatter-generating material. By using SRT, clinicians are able to reduce artifacts caused by metal or radio-opaque objects, such as restorations, endodontic filling materials, and implant posts.
When a scan is prescribed near a known area of scatter-generating material, the user only needs to select the SRT button from the GXDP-700 touchscreen interface to utilize this new optimization technology.
The Pride Institute Best of Class Technology awards were launched in 2009 to provide an objective, nonprofit assessment of available technologies for the dental community.
