First Installation at Loma Linda University
Elmsford, NY, June 22, 2011 – leading provider of imaging products to the dental, medical and veterinary marketplace, is proud to announce the FDA Approval of the latest Cone Beam CT, the NewTom 5G. The latest development from NewTom is the successor to the world renowned NewTom 3G which has been trusted by dental imaging centers, hospitals and universities worldwide for years.
Joseph M. Caruso, DDS, MS, MPH - Associate Dean, Strategic Initiatives and Faculty Practices, Professor and Chair Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics at Loma Linda University School of Dentistry stated, “Over the years we have had an opportunity to evaluate, use and research many different manufacturers; however our main choice for patient use is still the NewTom. The supine machine provides improved patient stability, with less motion artifacts, allowing us to continue to provide more complete diagnosis to our orthodontic, implant and Sleep Apnea patients. We upgraded to the 3G several years ago. After 10 years of day-in and day-out use and thousands of scans, we will replace our NewTom 3G with what I believe provides the best images and radiation protection to the patient in the industry - the NewTom 5G. It features more fields of view (FOV), less radiation, a voxel size of .075mm, and unsurpassed image clarity. With over 40 machines on the market NewTom was still our choice. It's not just a machine, it's a relationship.”
