ImageWorks Announces New X-era

Imageworks and Yoshida Announce Launch of Groundbreaking 0.2 mm Focal Spot Dental Cone Beam Imaging System

Tuesday, August 13th 2019, Elmsford, NY —  Imageworks and Yoshida Dental today announced the launch of the first 0.2 mm focal spot dental cone beam imaging system in the United States.  The Panoura X-era utilizes one of the highest-precision focal spots in generating three-dimensional volumes as well as two dimensional panoramic and cephalometric images, which allows the dental professional to see a level of edge definition that is one of a kind.

Don Vibbert, CEO of Imageworks said: “The Panoura X-era Dental Cone Beam is the first dental cone beam to be designed with this level of imaging resolution.  Dentists will be able to see a level of image edge definition that will give them absolute confidence in the plan they develop for their patient.  Our partnership with Yoshida has been a strong one for many years, and we are very excited to bring this extraordinary platform to our partners and customers in North America.”

The X-era also utilizes one of the most powerful sensors in the industry with a 16-bit, Direct Conversion sensor.  This revolutionary design solves one of the fundamental challenges of most panoramic systems:  that the sensor material is not sensitive enough to convert x-ray directly into the digital signal.  Therefore, the system must perform multiple data conversions which degrade image precision.  The X-era’s Direct Conversion Sensor solves this problem by using an ultra-high sensitivity material that can convert x-ray directly to digital thereby avoiding the image degradation that occurs with most sensors.

The 3D field of view creates enormous return on investment for the dental professional.  With multiple fields up to 16 cm x 8 cm, the X-era provides extraordinary flexibility whether the dental professional chooses to perform implants, endodontic evaluation, impacted tooth assessment, paranasal sinus evaluation, TMJ visualization, or airway studies.

“We are excited to bring to the United States a platform that has helped so many dentists around the world. Our team has seen first-hand how enhanced image resolution can improve the standard of care,” said Kazutake Yamanaka, Vice president of Yoshida Dental Manufacturing. 

Imageworks will be showing the X-era platform at the FDI ADA World Dental Congress Meeting in San Francisco on September 5th through the 7th  in booth 1066.  The X-era is available from more than three hundred dealer and service partner locations across North America.
