Planmeca, Helsinki, Finland, has teamed with CephX Technologies Ltd, Herzeliya, Israel, to launch an automatic cephalometric tracing and analysis service for the Planmeca Romexis® dental imaging software. The service, intended for orthodontic practitioners, uses CephX’s AlgoCeph algorithm, which utilizes artificial intelligence and machine learning technology.

After image capture using the software is complete, an automatic cephalometric analysis can be ordered and received in a few seconds, according to a press release from the company. The software draws on a database of thousands of manually traced cephalometric images to complete the analysis.

The service can also be used directly online from a dedicated website that has been designed for Planmeca users who have not yet upgraded to version 4.6 of the Planmeca Romexis software.
