3D Accuitomo 170 radiation dosage - Fast imaging and low radiation

The concept of “safety” counts two-fold in X-ray diagnostics: the safety of the diagnosis and radiation safety.


Cone beam computed tomography is based on the ALARA principle, which allows for the lowest possible radiation exposure combined with satisfactory image quality. Moreover, from both a clinical and ethical perspective, it behooves dentists to ensure that their patients incur the lowest possible radiation exposure. Various organizations have issued standards in this regard.  For further more, see the following:

The 3D Accuitomo 170 set out in several features a reduced dose and thus protects your patients, in which the 3D Accuitomo 170 reduces radiation to a minimum:
