Rotograph Evo 3D is a new dental imaging system with 3-in-1 functionality: Panoramic, Cephalometric, 3D. This new machine is based on the highly regarded mechanical platform of the Rotograph Evo, adapted mechanically and electronically to operate with the latest "Cone Beam" technology allowing 3D reconstruction of the jaws. Core of the Rotograph Evo 3D is the innovative Flat Panel Detector (FPD) using Amorphous Silicon technology associated with Cesium Iodide (CsI) scintillator. Thanks to its peculiarity to work in either Panoramic or 3D modality, Pan images are acquired directly and not reconstructed from a volume, while the unit's 3D Field of View of 93x82 mm allows to obtain the entire dental status of the patient in a single exposure. The Rotograph Evo 3D can also be integrated with a digital Cephalometric arm, or upgraded at a later stage in case of need, in order to expand applications to the orthodontic field.
The Rotograph Evo 3D can be customized for professionals needing by acting on its Examination Modules. Particularly, a Cephalometric arm can be mounted to integrate the Pan and 3D views with Ceph analysis. The Evo Xp Examination Module further enlarges the traditional Panoramic views, not limiting the 2D imaging to the Standard Panoramic projection.
Thanks to its Field of View (FOV) of 8,5x8,5 cm, on the Rotograph Evo 3D the entire dental status can usually be visualized with a single, fast exposure, with images ready to be archived and treated with Dental Studio Software. Alternatively, should the user prefer to export the acquired images and use a 3rd party Software, Dental Studio can easily give as output the full set of slices in DICOM format. Differently, when the system is used in Panoramic or Cephalometric mode, the images are acquired directly in bidimensional format and not reconstructed from the 3D volume; as a consequence, they are therefore displayed with the typical standard 2D layout.
Despite its huge technologic content, the Rotograph Evo 3D is extremely easy to operate. All commands and functions are given through its main keyboard mounted directly on board, in order to be able to set the machine right during the patient positioning phase. Alternatively, all commands are replicated on the virtual keyboard available on the workstation, where a specific guided procedure will drive the user for an appropriate system setting, starting from exam selection till setting of exposure parameters.
The fully-integrated Pan-3D detector is always ready to use, without need to operate on it to switch from Pan to 3D acquisition modality: the machine commutes automatically from 2D to 3D simply by acting on the user interface. Additionally, as long as the Field of View allows to commonly see the entire dentition, the user can save the time needed to position the patient on a specific tooth. Finally, the limited X-ray time makes the entire procedure faster, while reducing the radiation dose.
Rotograph Evo 3D allows an easy access to any kind of patient, including also wheelchairs bound patients, surpassing the accessibility limits and restrictions given by systems requiring the patient to seat on an integrated chair or laying on an integrated bed.
The advanced technology of the Rotograph Evo 3D allows to see the images on the workstation in real time, while the machine is rotating. Simultaneously, the 3D reconstruction module creates the volume using a specific algorithm for artefact reduction. Once the volume reconstruction is completed, the 3D visualization module shows the entire dental status on a single view, thus giving a great support on the study of the single specific case. The representation of the windows is loaded automatically during the first acquisition and it's then fully customizable by the user. Once the image is obtained, the Dental Studio imaging Software makes then available to the user all our expertise in terms of image treatment and specific 3D planning.
