ProMax 3D Max
Dedicated 3D imaging
Profound understanding of anatomy
The unique Planmeca ProMax® 3D product family offers equipment for all maxillofacial imaging. All volume sizes from the smallest special cases to whole skull images are available. Planmeca ProMax® 3D Max, the dedicated CBCT X-ray unit, is designed to obtain complete information on patient anatomy in the minutest detail. With a maximum field of view (FOV) of Ø23 x 26 cm, it offers entirely new possibilities in diagnostics. Advanced imaging software tools maximise the benefits.
Detailed diagnostics with 3D imaging
In modern dentistry, the demand for implant surgery is steadily growing, which has created a need for more advanced X-ray imaging systems. To meet the needs of modern surgical dentistry and to supply clear, dependable imaging in a three-dimensional format with limited patient radiation dose, Planmeca ProMax 3D Max utilises Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) technology. This innovative, versatile, and dynamic imaging device will open up new possibilities for on-site dentists.
Planmeca ProMax 3D Max complies with a multitude of diagnostic requirements: those of endodontics, periodontics, orthodontics, implantology, as well as dental and maxillofacial surgery, and TMJ analysis.
Unequalled imaging programs
Planmeca ProMax® 3D Max produces high-resolution volumetric studies of the mandible and maxilla for analysing the available bone structure, the location of the mandibular canal, and the correct position for the implant. Pre-surgical planning reaches a new level of precision.
Third molars, maxillary cuspids, supernumerary teeth, and impactions challenge the clinician to identify the tooth’s orientation. By using Planmeca ProMax 3D Max, all angles and orientations become clearly visible. Imaging any region of interest in the maxillofacial region is effortless, as the volume sizes include everything from full maxillofacial image size to the smallest size intended for single tooth imaging.
Planmeca ProMax 3D Max studies provide full visualisation of all classes of orthodontic malocclusion. This is highly advantageous in orthodontic planning, as time is saved and patient radiation dose reduced. Planmeca ProMax 3D Max provides the image data in the correct anatomic 1:1 ratio, with no need to correct for geometric magnification.
Planmeca ProMax 3D Max also provides high-resolution TMJ studies for true and accurate evaluations of the joint arthritides, condylar morphology, and the condyle-fossa relationship.
High resolution, low dose
Planmeca ProMax 3D Max 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-sized 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.
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.
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.
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.
