Using the HD Mode in Sirona CBCT Systems

Must read

Sirona CBCT systems such as the Sirona Orthophos XG 3D Panoramic and Cone Beam System provide standard 2D panoramic plus small or medium 3D fields of view (FOV) cone beam scans. With its HD imaging mode and other advanced imaging features, the hybrid Sirona Orthophos XG 3D is a great option for general dentistry practices as well as specialists, including endodontists, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, and implantologists.

The Sirona Orthophos XG 3D system features an HD Mode for capturing high resolution, small 5×5.5 cm FOV images with lower voxel sizes for more precise diagnoses. This HD mode was designed to assist dental professionals with procedures such as endodontics and implants as well as for treating patients that have a high density of metal restorations. This setting uses a special algorithm that captures higher-resolution and higher-contrast dental CBCT images with fewer artifacts and less image noise, for more efficient, more accurate diagnoses. At the same time, the smaller field of view HD scan limits radiation dose to the area of interest, creating a safer treatment environment for patients and dental practice team members alike.

The main difference between the Standard and HD Modes within this Sirona CBCT system is the voxel size. Voxels are a 3D representation of a pixel, so the smaller the voxel size, the higher the resolution of the captured scan. For example, if you expose a 5×5.5 cm field of view scan in Standard mode, the resultant voxel size will be about 160μm, whereas the same scan would result in a 100μm resolution in the HD imaging mode.

You can easily switch between the Standard and HD Modes in the Sirona Orthophos XG 3D system using the unit’s user-friendly control panel. This panel clearly displays whether or not the HD mode is activated. If the panel reads “HD on,” then the High-Definition mode is activated, and if it states “HD off,” then the Standard mode is active. It’s as simple as that!

There are a number of benefits associated with capturing Sirona CBCT HD scans. The HD setting better supports endodontic, implant, surgical and other detailed procedures due to the ability to more accurately measure the relative proximity of anatomical structures in relation to each other. This imaging mode also aids with assessing anomalies in root anatomy, as well as more effective treatment planning for root resorption. In addition, since dental practitioners can better visualize the affected area(s), the use of HD 3D scans often results in more successful and predictable treatment outcomes and improved patient care.

If you’re interested in adding the power of Sirona high-definition cone beam to your dental practice, there is no need to pay full price for a brand new system. Purchasing a certified pre-owned Sirona cone beam system such as the Sirona Orthophos XG 3D system from Renew Digital can often save you up to 30% to 50% off the price of new Sirona CBCT systems. There is also no need to worry about the dependability or quality of the used dental equipment. Renew Digital thoroughly inspects and tests each unit that they purchase against manufacturer’s specifications before it is resold to ensure reliability and long life. And, since they install the latest software and firmware with each device, you can be sure that you are getting a Sirona CBCT system with all of the latest features and functions at a much more affordable price.
