“We are very excited about working with Ray Co. and Samsung to provide practitioners with a compact, yet powerful, CBCT imaging system to capture the crisp, high-quality images needed for diagnosis and treatment,” said Lamar Roberts, president of LED Imaging. “We understand what practitioners want and need, so partnerships like this give us an advantage to provide the best technology available in each product category.”
The RAYSCAN Alpha – Expert’s 3D images are captured using an optimal 9 cm x 9 cm field of view, which is ideal for a wide variety of clinical applications. The system’s CMOS and Direct Deposition Cesium Iodide (CsI) Detector ensure practitioners can quickly capture high-quality, 16-bit DICOM images at a low radiation dose. To minimize error from patient positioning and movement, the system’s focal trough is stabilized and controlled through Adaptive Moving Focus technology. The RAYSCAN Alpha’s exclusive denoising technology enhances image quality by removing noise that would otherwise blur the image.
Due to its sleek design, the RAYSCAN Alpha – Expert can fit into nearly any practice floor plan. The system’s height adjustment component means patients of all sizes, including those in wheelchairs, can fit comfortably in the unit. The RAYSCAN Alpha – Expert is also the world’s first imaging system to utilize a wireless remote control for patient positioning. Additionally, green, blue, yellow and red LED lights indicate the status of the unit to practitioners at a glance: ready, standby, exposure and emergency. These components led to the RAYSCAN Alpha – Expert receiving both the red dot design award and International Design Excellence Bronze Award for its effective product design.
In addition to the RAYSCAN Alpha – Expert’s advanced imaging capabilities and unique design, the system also features an intuitive user interface to streamline the capture process and simplify the manipulation of images. The system utilizes Xelis 3D Imaging Software, which features state-of-the art functionality and a comprehensive implant planning module.
