Acteon recently introduced XMind Trium, which sounds like the most versatile panoramic dental unit on the market. It can be upgraded to 3D (CBCT) and cephalometry to provide a full range of medium FOV sizes for 2D and 3D imaging. Image quality is said to be perfectly uniform and of the highest caliber. The software is intuitive and mouse-enabled. By capturing a highly accurate image of the patient’s anatomy in full 360-degree rotation, it allows for extremely detailed evaluation of things like the dental arch, bone density, anatomic structures, and other morphology, so that implants can be more precisely planned. Having a more precise measurement of bone density enables the dentist and lab technician to better identify the size and shape of implants appropriate, and in proportion to the patient’s morphology.
XMind Trium is also useful for sinus lift surgery, guided surgery, orthodontics, periodontal treatment, general dentistry, and ENT. If you are into voxel sizes, its finest is 75 µm, a resolution that also makes XMind ideal for endodontic diagnoses. In addition, XMind Trium is on the only panoramic on the market that combines the smallest voxel size with “native” FOVs, so the images do not have to be stitched together.
Another cool feature is an “artifacts reduction filter.” This enables differentiating bone from tooth from metal, and the opportunity to rebuild the image with different filter levels if necessary. That’s pretty neat. And it has the smallest footprint for a cephalometric device.
The software is simple, the architecture is open. It can be used with Windows or Mac. And DICOM 3 and STL make it compatible with any CAD/CAM system or implant planning software.
