Planmeca_Viso_imaging-systemPlanmeca, Roselle, Ill, has introduced the Planmeca Viso™ CBCT imaging system.

Planmeca Viso features 2D, 3D, and optional cephalometric modalities. It is designed to provide improved patient positioning, simpler field-of-view adjustments, and intelligent patient movement correction, as well as to capture images at a low patient dose, with Planmeca Ultra Low Dose™ imaging. The system has a large 25 x 30 cm flat panel sensor which allows the Planmeca Viso to capture the entire maxillofacial area.

Patient positioning is done directly from the system’s control panel utilizing integrated cameras and a live video view. The operator can see the patient live from the control panel screen for flexible and exact positioning. The innovation allows users to do field-of-view adjustments directly from the live control panel view with the touch of a fingertip.

Planmeca Viso also features Planmeca CALM™ (Correction Algorithm for Latent Movement) which analyzes and compensates for slight movements during a scan to provide improved diagnostic images and help eliminate retakes. The system’s new imaging arm design also provides increased patient space and shorter acquisition times.

The system also introduces a new way of capturing three-dimensional Planmeca ProFace® facial photos. Equipped with a new upper and lower head support and four integrated cameras aimed at the patient from different directions, Planmeca ProFace covers a larger area than before with enhanced image quality.

According to the company, Planmeca Viso paves the way for the launch of Planmeca 4D™ Jaw Motion. This new Planmeca-exclusive technology is a CBCT integrated solution for tracking, recording, visualizing, and analyzing jaw movement in 3D. It offers visualization and measurement data of mandibular 3D movements in real-time.

Planmeca Viso and Planmeca 4D Jaw Motion are now available in the United States.
