Planmeca: Ultra Low Dose CBCT Images With High Diagnostic Value

The Planmeca Ultra Low Dose™ protocol combines high CBCT image quality with exceptionally low patient doses. It is the world’s leading low dose imaging mode for supporting accurate diagnostics and allows clinicians to safely see more than ever before.

CBCT imaging changed dentistry in a big way at the turn of the millennium. It increased diagnostic accuracy and opened up numerous new possibilities by literally introducing a third dimension to dental radiology. Over time, patient doses have decreased considerably as CBCT imaging technology has advanced further. Special low dose protocols have also been introduced. These days, numerous CBCT unit manufacturers offer some kind of alternative for low dose imaging.

However, all options are not equal. Many manufacturers struggle to maintain a diagnostically acceptable image quality at lower doses and the effectiveness of their so-called low dose options have not even been proven.

In turn, the Planmeca Ultra Low Dose™ protocol supports diagnostic accuracy that remains high even at incredibly low patient doses.

This is backed up by science. Planmeca Ultra Low Dose has been proven to reduce effective patient doses while maintaining a high diagnostic value.

An academic study by John Barrett Ludlow and Juha Koivisto determined that on average using the protocol lowered doses by an incredible 77% without a statistical reduction in diagnostic image quality.

“An average reduction in dose of 77% was achieved using ULD protocols when compared with standard protocols. While this dose reduction was significant, no statistical reduction in image quality between ULD and standard protocols was seen. This would suggest that patient doses can be reduced without loss of diagnostic quality.”

These benefits are available to all users – without restrictions. Every Planmeca CBCT unit includes Planmeca Ultra Low Dose as a standard feature. It can be used with any voxel size or imaging mode by simply pressing a button.

The effectiveness of Planmeca Ultra Low Dose has also been verified by clinicians all around the world. Read on to see what they have to say about the revolutionary imaging protocol!

Testimonial of CBCT imaging units:

Dr. Ceri Owen-Roberts carefully researched the available technologies as he prepared to add a CBCT imaging unit to his clinic in Bristol. He determined that the Planmeca ProMax® 3D Max unit and its combination of high image quality and low patient doses was the way to go. This decision has been a highly successful one.

“I am most proud of the fact that we can take such high quality scans with a low radiation dose. Making the decision to invest in a CBCT is made all the easier with the assurance that you can see all the relevant anatomical structures at a fraction of the radiation dose of a traditional CT. For my work with dental implants and oral surgery, this has been invaluable.”

When Dr. Chris Navarro took over his father’s clinic in Nottingham, he immediately invested in new technology. It has helped the clinic offer safe, prosthetically-driven treatments and Dr. Navorro has witnessed the benefits first-hand.

“I chose the Planmeca ProMax® 3D Classic imaging unit based on the fact that it offers Planmeca’s proprietary Planmeca Ultra Low Dose imaging protocol. This facilitates 3D imaging at an even lower patient radiation dose than standard 2D panoramic imaging, which is an important factor in the treatment of patients at my practice. The Planmeca ProMax 3D Classic produces good quality diagnostic images even with a low radiation dose, and I also like Planmeca Romexis®, the open source software platform of this CBCT unit.”
