FONA XPan DG Plus is built around a new high resolution and low noise imaging sensor for clear and sharp radiographs taking advantage of the features of the OrisWin DG Suite, the application program for image processing and storage.
The use of a removable digital sensor, which can be alternatively operated in panoramic or cephalometric mode, makes the system efficient allowing for wide flexibility of use at the lowest possible cost. The system comes with OrisWin DG Suite, the dental imaging software with networking capabilities, covering extraoral and intra- oral radiology and open to other imaging devices. Digital imaging processing includes features such as invert, color, contrast, brightness, gamma, sharpen, median, and measurement. The built in filtering options and image manipulation tools assure optimized diagnostic images with enhanced details, consistently.
- Simply digital
The unit uses a CCD sensor driven for maximum definition of panoramic and cephalometric images. This is done using a constant potential X-ray generator and a tube with a small focal spot which guarantee superb image quality that will remain constant over time. The system is easy to use with automatic image acquisition, quick processing and display on the computer screen so as to highlight the most important details.
The symbols on the control panel are intuitive. There are seven panoramic and three cephalometric programs provided and the system can deal with four patient sizes: (P1) panoramic examination with constant vertical magnification of the dental arch, (P2) reduced dose panoramic imaging for children, (P3) left side dentition, (P4) right side dentition, (P5) anterior dentition, (P6) lateral temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ) in normal occlusion and fully open that can be carried out twice with no interval and (P7) frontal view of maxillary sinuses, (P8) Antero Posterior view (P9) Latero Lateral projection (with soft tissue filtering), (P10) Carpus, with hand support. Submento Vertex Projections can be done in AP mode.
The system is both compact and comfortable where the patient faces a mirror in the traditional fashion. Alignment is carried out quickly on a static patient and the use of three laser beams ensures perfect centering. Overjet from mandibular retrusion or protrusion is rectified with motorised horizontal translation of the carriage. Adjustable temporomandibular resting bars for added stability are available on request. The carriage can be moved vertically to such an extent that patients in wheelchairs can be easily accommodated. A free-standing base unit is available for when wall fixing is not possible.
The constant potential X-ray generator is an essential element in the imaging chain. The fact that anode voltage can be modulated as desired increases the penetration factor for dense structures as well as the visibility of soft tissues in Ceph mode. The small focal spot ensures acquisition of the maximum definition generated. The software and the device that protect the X-ray tube from heat damage, yet minimize cooling time, guarantee excellent operating efficiency. Digital imaging processing includes features such as invert, color, contrast, brightness, gamma, sharpen, median, and measurement. The built in filtering options and image manipulation tools assure optimized diagnostic images with enhanced details, consistently.
