Computer Aided 3D CT Scan Imaging Units

BIDH Dental Hospital Sukhumvit uses the Planmeca ProMax 3D for our 3D CT Scan imaging unit. Key benefits selected for Planmeca imaging are:

  • Ultra low dose imaging for patients
  • Automatic patient movement correction to reduce imaging errors and for clearer images
  • Comprehensive imaging software by Romexis® with an extensive range of tools for diangoses and planning
  • Uncompromising infection control in the design of imaging technology. Special attention is made to material selection, design and technical details to ensure a safe treatment environment.
  • Hand-made manufactured in Finland
  • Company has strong commitment to Resarch and Development using the latest advancement in imaging technologies

Close to 50 years of excellence in health care technology, Planmeca is one of the world’s top provider on imaging technologies for world-class 2D and 3D imaging devices and comprehensive software solutions. Headquartered in Helsinki, Finland, Planmeca is the largest privately held company in the field of dental equipment with good reputation and established equipment maintainence care. Its Planmeca Romexis® software is the first dental software in the world to combine 2D and 3D imaging and the complete CAD/CAM workflow into the same platform.

Moving in-line with digital dentistry concept at BIDH, our dental hospital works in colloboration with Planmeca as one of the first dental centers in Thailand to implemented the latest innovative streamline flow and digital platform.

Premium CBCT image quality

planmeca scara technology

The imaging units is designed to prevent human errors in CBCT imaging. The patented SCARA (Selectively Compliant Articulated Robot Arm) technology guarantees an anatomically accurate imaging geometry. This allows for accurate and reliable image volume positioning and diameter adjustment. An intelligent ARA™ algorithm removes metal artefacts caused by metal restorations and root fillings efficiently and reliably for clarity of images.

Its AINO™ algorithm achieves noise-free images without losing valuable details. Using small voxel sizes allows lower radiation exposure to patient and reducing noise in image quality.

Proven Ultra Low Dose™ 3D imaging

All Planmeca 3D imaging units has the proprietary Planmeca Ultra Low Dose™ imaging protocol. This means that 3D imaging are taken at even lower patient radiation dose than standard 2D panoramic imaging.

Planmeca proprietary imaging protocol is the world’s leading method for acquiring 3D dental images at low effective patient doses. Based on intelligent 3D algorithms, this system lower effective patient doses significantly without a statistical reduction in image quality to adhere and acheive the ALARA principle (As Low As Reasonably Achievable).

3D CT Scan Normal resolution

Patient dose ~86 μSv

Comprehensive Romexis® imaging software

Planmeca Romexis® provides a tools for 2D and 3D imaging used at BIDH Sukhumvit Dental Hospital. With digital CT Scan technologies, your images appear on screen immediately without any wait time. This enables quick and smooth diagnoses and treatment planning shortening wait time and appointment visit times.

As Romexis is a networked software platform, all images and treatment plans are available on different workstations immediately. When colloborating work between specialists, images may be shared and consulted instantly. Accountability and security within its software system on authorisation and logs are consistently track to keep your information private.
