Varian Medical Systems has formed a two-year deal for use of its PaxScan flat-panel digital image detectors in Imaging Sciences International's i-CAT cone-beam 3-D dental imaging system. The compact design and rapid image-acquisition capabilities of the PaxScan detectors enable the i-CAT to capture 3-D images very quickly, typically within 20 seconds, and at very low X-ray doses, said Palo Alto, California-based Varian. The system provides dental professionals with immediate, 3-D digital reconstructions of a patient's mouth, face and jaw areas, which can be viewed on a computer screen or printed out in full colour.
