Planmed, based in Helsinki, Finland, has launched its improved Planmed Verity CBCT scanner, a unique 3D imaging solution for orthopedic as well as head and neck imaging. The scanner now offers enhanced image quality, new options for head and neck imaging, Planmeca Ultra Low Dose imaging protocol for lower patient doses, and Planmeca CALM algorithm for motion artefact correction.

Image quality of the adaptable and mobile Planmed Verity has been enhanced to meet all imaging needs. The high-quality images of Planmed Verity visualize even the smallest bone structures with minimal interference. Combined with new patient and volume positioning options, the image quality makes it possible to acquire images of the head and neck region with precision. Planmed Verity covers ear, nose, and throat imaging, as well as basic 3D dental imaging needs.

“We are pleased to further improve Planmed Verity and its maxillofacial and ENT imaging options,” says Jan Moed, managing director of Planmed. “This is something our customers have requested, and we are happy to answer this need. This unit is now more versatile than ever before. It is an easy-to-use and cost-efficient solution making it a great tool for any imaging center, clinic or hospital.”

The Planmeca CALM algorithm eliminates the need for retakes by cancelling the effects of patient movement, ideal for imaging more lively patients. Also, the innovative Planmeca Ultra Low Dose imaging protocol combines clinical image quality with low effective patient doses, enabling 3D imaging with a dose close to standard 2D imaging. The protocol allows reducing the Planmed Verity scanner’s already low effective patient doses by 50% without compromising diagnostic image quality. Also, the new volume positioning possibilities enable enhanced accuracy to the imaging area.
