NewTom VGi Flex is a Cone Beam scanner that has all the features of the VGi unit. This shorter version of VGi is more suited for smaller spaces. With one-button calibration and a simple, fast warm-up period, it makes going on the road easy.
NewTom VGi Flex fits in a variety of van configurations to suit your needs, making NewTom VGi Flex the CB3D machine that goes where you want your practice to go.
NewTom VGi, from the company that was the first to use the Cone Beam technologhy in dental field, represents the newest in CB3D technology. NewTom VGi takes an image at every degree of rotation, 360° rotation = 360 images, increasing the range of possibilities for image manipulation.
It couples a revolutionary flat panel X-ray detector technology with a very small focal spot (0.3mm), to produce the clearest, sharpest images possible.
VGi features an adjustable Field Of View, which allows doctors to irradiate just the right volume, depending on the different clinical applications.
The size of FOV can vary from the smallest 6x6 cm to the biggest 15x15 cm and they can be selected directly from the software, before the scan.
Patient positioning tools include cross-hair lasers and a mirror – powerful tools for exact patient positioning.
Only NewTom systems employ SafeBeam™ technology, the safest technology available for patient and staff. It automatically adjusts the radiation dosage according to the patient's age and size. A small child receives up to 40% less radiation than the already very low level for a full-sized adult. SafeBeam™ technology automatically and continuously monitors system operations eliminating the possibility of incorrect exposures. NewTom VGi features a single computer terminal and economical data storage.
With much less radiation than most other cone-beam systems, and up to 20-50 times less radiation than conventional CT, NewTom VGi uses a unique "pulse" system that unlike other systems, activates the X-ray source only when needed - delivering less than 5 seconds of total exposure for a full scan.
The physical technique of irradiating the anatomic part to be examined gives the name to the model of calculation defined as Cone Beam (CBCT- Cone Beam Computed Tomography) as opposed to the traditional system called Fan Beam.
Its small footprint and flexible seating make NewTom VGi the best choice for locations, where space is at a premium.
The exam can be performed while the patient is standing or seated. The scanner is wheelchair accesible.
Scan time: 18 sec.
Reconstruction time: less than 1 minute.
On all images, except 3D views, it is possible to get measurements in scale 1:1
It is supplied in all the formats: printed on photographic paper, medical film or blue film. All the rebuilt images can be exported on memory support (CD,DVD,ZIP-DISC...).
The system comprehends a patient-exams database, to store and quickly recover the performed exams.
NewTom VGi has a very small footprint, it does not need air-conditioned rooms, its weight does not require reinforced and it can function in rooms without complicated and expensive radiation protection structures. All this features brings minor installation costs of the tomograph.
FUNCTIONING AND TRAINING
All the operations executed by NewTom, the patient's examination and the following calculations, are computed guided. The user, when performing the scan, is supported by user-friendly menus. Each step is associated to a mouse-activated icon. Following the same process, one can easily review the integrated file of image-data.
