The new BW1 and BW2 programs are designed to allow the practitioner to take a diagnostic image quickly and easily, the company said. They give practitioners the option of taking an extraoral bitewing image when an intraoral image is difficult or not feasible, and they offer a low-dose alternative for diagnosis in the posterior and anterior regions.
The BW1 posterior program allows for additional diagnostic information compared to standard intraoral bitewings, the company said. With the XG 5 both sides are imaged; with the XGPlus the right, left, or both sides can be selected.
The BW2 anterior program provides a detailed overview image of the anterior area, according to the press release. It can be used with the edentulous positioning guide for anterior trauma patients and is a lower-dose alternative to multiple occlusal images when focusing on the anterior region, Sirona noted.
