Vancouver, BC - September 28, 2016
- LED Medical Diagnostics Inc., through its wholly-owned US and Canadian operating subsidiaries, LED Dental Inc./LED Dental Ltd. ("LED Dental") is pleased to announce the launch of the RAYSCAN Alpha Plus, a next-generation extraoral imaging system that is the latest innovation from former Samsung Electronics subsidiary RAY Company ("RAY").
Building upon the award-winning RAYSCAN Alpha platform, the RAYSCAN Alpha Plus continues RAY Company's dedication to delivering high-quality imaging technologies combined with innovative features that break new ground in the industry.
Clinicians can utilize the RAYSCAN Alpha Plus to capture high-resolution panoramic, cephalometric and cone beam computed tomography images. The panoramic modality allows for a variety of 2D panoramic examinations, including standard pano and segmented pano acquisitions, in addition to an extraoral bitewing feature.
The CBCT modality of the RAYSCAN Alpha Plus boasts several exclusive features that allow practitioners to truly customize examinations to their patients unlike ever before. First, the Alpha Plus utilizes an innovative light-guided field-of-view that simplifies patient positioning to reduce errors and retakes. The desired field-of-view is super-imposed on the patients face, allowing dental professionals to see the exact area being scanned in relation to the patients actual anatomy, ensuring accurate image acquisition.
Furthermore, the system adds to the innovative light-guided positioning feature by utilizing Free FOV technology, which makes the field-of-view completely customizable from 4x3 cm to 16x10 cm. While many systems on the market force the clinician to choose one of several pre-set field-of-view options, the RAYSCAN Alpha Plus allows practitioners to collimate the field-of-view to any size, truly limiting radiation exposure to the smallest area possible to still acquire the needed anatomy.
While The RAYSCAN Alpha Plus continues to push new boundaries in terms of dose reduction, image quality and clarity remain the systems top priority. The CBCT modality delivers voxel resolutions as small as 70 microns, making 3D images from the RAYSCAN Alpha Plus among the highest resolution in the industry. And, new proprietary algorithms allow for images to be reconstructed in as little as 4.9 seconds.
Finally, the optional cephalometric module is available in either scanning or one-shot options, with the one-shot module acquiring images in less than one second to further reduce image distortion and lessen radiation dose.
"We could not be more excited to launch the RAYSCAN Alpha Plus in conjunction with our partners at RAY Company," stated Dr. David Gane, CEO of LED Medical Diagnostics. "Over the last few years, RAY Company has illustrated a commitment to developing technologies that not only deliver exceptional image quality, but also integrate innovative features that make acquiring images more intuitive, delivering an improved user experience while reducing patient dose."
Kevin Cho, President of RAY America concluded, "The RAYSCAN Alpha Plus is the culmination of years of development and optimization, relying on clinical feedback to build a system that not only produces outstanding images but utilizes next-generation technologies to make oral healthcare a simpler, more patient-friendly process."
The RAYSCAN Alpha Plus is available now through LED Dental. For more information, please call 844.952.7327 or visit www.leddental.com
