KaVo Kerr, Charlotte, NC, has expanded its imaging product line with the new KaVo NOMAD Pro 2—a portable, handheld intraoral x-ray system.
The KaVo NOMAD Pro 2 features a lead-infused acrylic shield that protects the operator from scatter radiation while an internal proprietary housing encases the x-ray tube to block radiation leakage. According to the company, when the KaVo NOMAD Pro 2 is used as directed, these shields create a “safe zone” for the operator throughout the acquisition process.
The KaVo NOMAD Pro 2 features the latest in x-ray technology, including a 0.4 mm focal spot plus a 60 kV DC x-ray generator. It also features an intuitive user interface and ergonomic design. The user interface is designed to allow clinicians to easily adhere to ALARA and select the right dose for a patient’s particular need by choosing from a variety of easy-to-understand graphic settings.
The device, which can be moved easily between operatories and allows clinicians to remain chairside, includes leading-industry battery technology that provides more reliable and long-lasting battery life. According to the company, the device is ready for use right out of the box.
