ProMax 3D Mid
Genuine all-in-one unit
Planmeca ProMax® 3D Mid is a genuine all-in-one CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) unit including 3D imaging, digital panoramic, digital cephalometric and 3D photo, all in the same unit. One intelligent X-ray unit can meet virtually any need in maxillofacial imaging.
Adjustable volume sizes, resolution modes
Planmeca ProMax 3D Mid complies with a multitude of diagnostic requirements: those of implantology, endodontics, periodontics, orthodontics, as well as dental and maxillofacial surgery, and TMJ analysis. It is also an excellent tool for diagnosing ear, maxillary sinus, and respiratory tract diseases. Planmeca ProMax 3D Mid provide volumes sizes for every clinical application with possibility to adjust volume position according to acquired scout images.
Versatile volume sizes
The 3D image volume range covers everything between single tooth and whole facial region. The smallest Ø34 x 42 mm volume is intended e.g. for molar area where the largest Ø160 x 160 mm volume size gives overview of the whole facial area e.g. for orthodontic applications. For every volume size, different resolution modes are available: high, normal and low dose resolutions.
High resolution, low dose
Planmeca ProMax® 3D Mid offers different imaging modes for different needs. The high resolution mode gives very high resolution, but with the cost of higher dose. The low dose mode can be used for example in orthodontic
studies. A special high definition program is developed for imaging of small size ear bones. The unit also offers a special program for scanning impressions and plaster casts.
ROI reconstruction for higher resolution
The ROI (Region of Interest) reconstruction function can generate a new small voxel volume from the image data of a previously taken large voxel volume. This enables more precise diagnosis without producing any extra dose for the patient.
Planmeca Romexis® is a comprehensive software solution for acquiring, viewing, and processing 3D radiographs, 3D photos and intraoral surface scans. The powerful combination of these modalities provides the most accurate information of patient anatomy for different needs. Planmeca Romexis software offers specially designed tools for implantologists, endodontists, periodontists, maxillofacial surgeons and radiologists.
Sharing the results
Studies can be quickly converted into multi-page printouts or handed out on the free Planmeca Romexis® Viewer media. Cases can be seamlessly transferred to mobile devices or partner clinics that also use Planmeca Romexis. DICOM standard compliance guarantees that images can be processed with 3rd party software or shared via hospital PACS.
Convenient 3D diagnosis
The Planmeca Romexis 3D rendering view gives an immediate overview of the anatomy and serves as an excellent patient education tool. The images can be instantly viewed from different projections or converted into panoramic images and cross sectional slices. Measuring and annotation tools such as nerve canal tracing assist in safe and accurate planning of treatment.
Implant planning made easy
Planmeca Romexis allows easy planning and verification of implant placement using realistic implant models from several manufacturers. A soft tissue surface scan and crown design can be imported and superimposed with 3D X-ray data providing a perfect environment for implant planning. The virtual treatment plan can be used to place an order for a Materialise Dental SurgiGuide® drill guide that can be used to deliver your treatment plan exactly as designed.
Planmeca Romexis® Surface module allows viewing and processing surface models captured using the Planmeca ProMax 3D impression scan program or imported in STL format from other sources such as desktop scanners. Before and after model comparisons can be performed and the degree of change displayed in a color map. Surface models can be superimposed with CBCT data providing soft tissue information to aid in implant planning for example.
SmartPan™, unique panoramic imaging
A unique SmartPan™ imaging system uses the same 3D sensor also for panoramic imaging. This eliminates need to change sensors. The SmartPan system automatically calculates 9 different panoramic curves in 2 mm shifts from the panoramic exposure data and one layer where the sharpness is automatically adjusted for all regions. The user can browse between the panoramic images and select the most suitable for diagnosis after the exposure.
Optimised SmartPan™ exposures
The panoramic exposure is optimised only to denture area. By adjusting image height and width the image area and thus patient dose can be significantly reduced. In combined panoramic and TMJ program both temporomandibular joints will be showing in the image in an optimal and adjustable projection angle.
Planmeca ProFace™ – a unique 3D facial photo option
Planmeca ProFace™ is a unique 3D facial photo option available for the whole Planmeca ProMax® 3D family. A Planmeca 3D X-ray unit completed with Planmeca ProFace generates both a 3D photo and a CBCT volume in one imaging session. Alternatively, the 3D photo can be acquired separately in a radiation-free process: the lasers scan the facial geometry and the digital cameras capture the colour texture of the face.
Designed to fulfil the most diverse diagnostic needs of today’s maxillofacial and dental professionals, Planmeca ProFace gives the medical or dental professional the opportunity to plan operations and document follow-up images.
Safer and faster facial surgeries
The 3D photo visualises soft tissue in relation to dentin and facial bones, providing an effective follow-up tool for maxillofacial operations. As both a CBCT image and a 3D photo are generated in one imaging session, the patient position, facial expression, and muscle position remain unchanged, resulting in perfectly compatible images. Careful preoperative planning, where the medical professional can study the facial anatomy thoroughly using Planmeca Romexis® software, facilitates a detailed operation and enhances the aesthetic results.
Simple, effortless patient positioning
Patient positioning is made incredibly easy .
- The intuitive graphical user interface offers preprogrammed target sites and exposure values for different image types and targets.
- Positioning laser and joystick are used for fine adjustment. A scout image can be used to verify correct positioning.
- Full view open patient positioning
- Side entry for easy access; wheelchairs easily accommodated
Motorised patient support
The motorized patient support further improves the already easy patient positioning as the imaging arm automatically drives itself to correct height. It takes stitching of several basic volumes into a new level. The patient positioning system keeps the patient stationary while the unit drives from imaging position to another
With Planmeca ProMax® Cephalostat cephalometric imaging is easier and more accurate than ever before. By changing the place of the digital sensor the unit switches from panoramic to cephalometric imaging modality. The unit can also be equipped with two fixed digital sensors.
The functionally designed, easy-to-use head support guarantees accurate patient positioning in all cephalometric projections. The carbon fibre ear posts and nasal support are extremely durable, hygienic, and fully transparent to radiation.
Wide range of image sizes
The unique design allows an exceptional range of image sizes and formats with field sizes of up to 30 x 27 cm (11.8 x 10.6 in.) making digital lateral radiographs of the whole skull very easy. With the soft tissue filter applied in the Planmeca Romexis® imaging software the images can be viewed with or without the filter
Advanced SCARA Technology
The Planmeca ProMax™ platform’s unique SCARA technology (Selectively Compliant Articulated Robot Arm) enables free image geometry formation. Planmeca’s patented, computer-controlled SCARA robotic arm can produce any movement pattern required, ensuring perfectly accurate and reliable image volume positioning and enabling image volume diameter adjustment.
Pulsed X-ray – increased image quality, reduced patient dose
Pulsed X-ray reduces patient radiation dose considerably and forms stroboscopic X-ray effect which, together with the short rotation scan, virtually eliminates artefacts, contributing to outstanding image quality. The total scanning time is 18-26 seconds for one volume, but the actual exposure time is only 3 seconds at shortest.
