PreXion3D EXPEDITION is equipped with CT image acquisition capabilities applicable for all clinical situations at 5×5cm, 8×8cm, 12.5×10cm, and 15×15cm (optional), covering local to broader regions.
PreXion3D EXPEDITION uses a 360° rotation to generate high resolution images for all FOVs.
The precise and high-resolution display of hard and soft tissue enables outstanding diagnostics and planning across all areas of modern dentistry and maxillofacial surgery.
Theoretically, a high exposure dose is required to achieve high-definition clinical image quality, PreXion3D EXPEDITION achieves a precise balance between exposure dose and high-definition clinical image quality. PreXion3D EXPEDITION has one of the industry’s smallest Focal Spot (0.3 mm) and voxel sizes from 0.06 mm to 0.3 mm for all FOV sizes, and the smallest voxel size 0.06mm in Endo mode for high-resolution diagnosis of tooth tissue and structures. In addition, the newly developed IGZO FPD is equipped with a high X-ray tube voltage of 110 kV, pulsed X-ray irradiation, and 16-bit grayscale to achieve both higher image quality for a wide range of dental applications and lower radiation exposure for patient safety.
The focal spot, also called focus, is the area on the target of the X-ray tube which is struck by the electron stream and emits X-rays. The larger the focal spot’s area, the poorer the detail of the image. The PreXion3D EXPEDITION utilizes one of the smallest size focal spots in the industry at 0.3mm for all FOVs.
A combination of the words “volumetric” and “pixel”, a voxel is a three-dimensional volume element shaped like an isometric cube. The PreXion3D EXPEDITION offers powerful imaging software with voxel sizes ranging from 0.06 to 0.3mm in order to maintain image quality.
110kV tube voltage provides optimal image quality in all tissues. It reduces artifacts and provides high definition image quality.
By irradiating X-rays intermittently instead of continuously, the radiation dose to the patient is greatly reduced. Theoretically, it can reduce the consumption of the X-ray tube.
In 3D, up to 16bit (65,536 shades of gray) can be expressed, enabling even higher resolution and smoother image expression.
PreXion3D EXPEDITION makes higher resolution images possible by obtaining information content from the entire circumference with 360° scanning.
The cephalo unit equipped on PreXion3D EXPEDITION takes clear cephalometric images with one shot, reducing the burden on the patient’s body. (The cephalo unit is an option.)
