Xograph pfXograph Healthcare is pleased to announce that it has been selected as the sole supplier of Planmeca dental X-ray imaging systems for the NHS Supply Chain Dental Capital and Related Accessories Framework Agreement.

Planmeca is Europe’s premier manufacturer of dental imaging equipment with a full imaging range from intraoral dental phosphor plate scanners through to full head cone beam CT (CBCT) 3D imaging systems. The Planmeca range of intraoral and panoramic X-ray systems can meet almost any routine and specialist requirement. Most panoramic systems in the range are readily upgradeable to 3D (CBCT), allowing the versatility to produce routine panoramic and cephalostat imaging whilst, at the press of a button, having the capability to generate three-dimensional images at the same sitting. Fully integrated digital 3D facial photography can also be specified with the 3D X-ray and photography being captured in the same rotation cycle for improved workflow. The Planmeca Romexis software automatically superimposes both sets of images giving perfect image/volume alignment.

New innovations also include fully integrated impression scanning allowing the system to send data to an online Computed Aided Milling (CAM) machine for rapid manufacture of, for example, dental crowns. 3D anatomical datasets can also be sent to an online model and prosthesis manufacturing service to aid surgical planning and treatment.
