Planmeca?s new intraoral X-ray offers easy and precise positioning, intuitive operation, and high-resolution images.

Expanding its comprehensive line of dental X-ray and imaging technologies, Planmeca has equipped its new ProX intraoral X-ray unit with an array of innovative features for a wide spectrum of diagnostic imaging needs, including bitewing, periapical, and endodontic imaging.

Variability Is Key

The ProX offers the ultimate in flexibility with optimal image contrast and density for every diagnostic need and anatomical condition. In addition to variable milliamperes (2 mA to 8 mA) and time, the ProX offers variable kilovolts (kV) between 50 and 70 for maximum versatility?all in a digital-ready, practical design. The low kV settings provide the high contrast required for endodontics and bone structure diagnostics, medium kV creates a wide grayscale for general diagnostics, and high kV simplifies caries detection and periodontal diagnosis with a long grayscale spectrum. These capabilities, along with a high-frequency (66 kHz), constant-potential X-ray generator, support the ALARA (As Low As Reasonably Achievable) radiation principle. The user can adjust the amount of radiation to the minimum value required for the image, generating significantly less radiation exposure when compared to conventional AC generators. Additionally, child and adult settings provide maximum flexibility to meet patient needs. The selectable exposure parameters maximize the diagnostic value of intraoral radiographs.

High-Quality Diagnostics

The focal spot size of the ProX X-ray tube is 0.4 mm, ensuring optimal resolution and exceptionally clear images. The unit is pre-programmed with 66 quick settings for different exposure value combinations. The imaging parameters are selected from the intuitive control panel.
