AFP Imaging Corp, Elmsford, NY, has announced a 25% reduced scan time on its NewTom VG Cone Beam Scanner. The NewTom VG is an upright or vertical generation (VG) CBCT scanning system allowing patients to sit, stand, or remain in a wheelchair while being scanned.    

According to the company, the newly reduced scan time lessens the likelihood of patient movement, allowing practitioners to take higher-quality images. This means fewer retakes and potentially faster, more accurate diagnosis. Not limited to new installations, the reduced scan time can be applied to all existing NewTom VG installations with a software upgrade.

NewTom VG also features Safe Beam™ technology, which automatically adjusts the radiation dosage according to the patient’s age and size. It uses intermittent bursts of radiation only milliseconds in duration during image acquisition.
