Air Techniques has launched its ProVecta S-Pan panoramic digital radiography system.
The ProVecta S-Pan offers a full adult panoramic x-ray in seven seconds and offers 17 image programs, four of which are specifically designed for pediatric patients with reduced radiation exposure.
The S-Pan image technology starts with the patient-specific path that the cesium iodide (Csl) sensor follows and continues as 20 layers of images are collected and sliced into 20,000 image segments. One image is automatically constructed from the best selections. Patient comfort is accommodated by height adjustment and outward facing orientation and also assured positioning with three laser guides. Practitioner's needs also are addressed with a large, menu-driven touch-screen control and optional voice commands.
"We are thrilled to offer such a high-quality panoramic x-ray," stated Frank Seipp, Air Techniques' digital product manager, in a press release. "The best possible images are delivered every time automatically by ProVecta, resulting in quicker and easier diagnosis."
