OREM, UTAH—21 February 2012—Aribex®, Inc., the worldwide leader in handheld x-ray technologies, will launch their new Rectangular Collimator Adapter for the NOMAD® Pro handheld x-ray system at the Chicago Midwinter Dental Meeting February 23-25. The device snaps on the cone of the NOMAD Pro to reduce the x-ray exposure from a 6 centimeter circle to a 3 by 4 centimeter rectangle, matching the size and shape of a #2 dental image receptor.
“Dozens of studies have proven the NOMAD Pro to be safe,” said Ken Kaufman, President of Aribex, Inc. “The NOMAD Pro patient dose area is already 27 percent smaller than that of traditional systems. Thanks to the feedback of our customers and the hard work of the Aribex team, this new Rectangular Collimator Adapter makes our NOMAD Pro even safer, since it reduces the dose area by an additional 58 percent.”
The Rectangular Collimator Adapter is currently available for immediate shipment with a manufacturer’s suggested retail of $195.00, 75 percent less than similar adapters on the market today. During the Chicago Dental Meeting at McCormick Place the adapter will be featured in the Aribex NOMAD booth #2036.
“But improved patient safety isn’t the only benefit,” Kaufman continued. “Studies have shown that when properly used our device protects dental staff members as much or better than traditional wall-mounted systems.”
