Tennessee Residents Get Access to Advanced Oral and Maxillofacial Imaging Technology
LED Medical Diagnostics announced that the LED Imaging Division of LED Dental Ltd., its US operating subsidiary, has signed a partnership with the University Of Tennessee Health Science Center College Of Dentistry. Through the deal, residents, students, and faculty of the College of Dentistry gain access to advanced oral and maxillofacial imaging technology. Dental students and residents will get hands-on training with the RAYSCAN alpha – Expert, a multi-function digital imaging system. It will be part of their clinical training. The partnership between the company and the college shows LED Imaging’s commitment to deliver revolutionary technology to the industry and improve the education given to future dental specialists and dentists.
LED Imaging’s technology is important to the college’s clinical efforts and a huge asset to their students, faculty, and the entire community. The RAYSCAN alpha – Expert gives the best oral health imaging technology on the market into the hands of the students. UT graduates will be confident that they got the highest diagnostic training available and can apply what they learned from the training in caring for their patients.
The RAYSCAN alpha – Expert has a 3D cone beam computed tomography, cephalometric, and panoramic features. It was developed by Ray Co., Ltd., which is a subsidiary of Samsung. The system captures the images dentists need to make accurate diagnoses. The 3D images are captured using an optimal field of view. The Direct Deposition Cesium Iodide Detector and CMOS make sure that dentists can get the high quality images at low radiation dose. Its focal trough is stabilized and controlled via Adaptive Moving Focus technology. The system has noise reduction algorithms to improve image quality by removing image noise that could blur the image. It is also the first imaging system that uses wireless remote control for patient positioning. It teaches students the techniques to position patients for CBCT, panoramic, and cephalometric image acquisition.
