J. Morita USA Veraview X800 Now Available in Canada

Richard Gawel


The Veraview X800 from J. Morita USA is now available in Canada. The multifunctional unit offers progressive technology that automatically sets the optimal x-ray beam angle, horizontal for 3-D or raised 5° for 2-D panoramic images. This slight upward projection enhances image quality by eliminating potential super-imposition of anatomical structures, the company reports, including the shadow from the base of the skull and hard palate over the maxillary teeth. For 3-D imaging, a horizontal beam minimizes distortion and reduces metal artifacts.

CBCT imaging clarity also has been improved, with a reduced voxel size of 80 µm and 2.5-LP/mm resolution, which Morita calls outstanding for a multifunctional unit. The X800 offers up to 11 fields of view (FOV) covering dental and maxillofacial areas. It also boasts Morita’s completely exclusive 3-D Reuleaux Full Arch FOV. Its unique shape closely matches the shape of the natural dental arch, reducing dose by excluding areas outside the region of interest.

If a larger field of view is acquired and there is a need to increase the resolution in a selected part of the scan, the X800 can reconstruct that region at the highest resolution of 80 µm without repeating the scan, saving the patient from unnecessary retakes. Also, two 3-D exposure modes offer more control and flexibility regarding acquisition time and resolution with 360° or 180° rotation.

The X800 targets oral and maxillofacial surgery, implantology, periodontics, endodontics, orthodontics, and general dentistry. It also features partial panoramic/cephalometric images, an external bitewing module, adjustable chinrest height for easy and accurate patient positioning, and i-Dixel 2.0 3-D imaging software with a DICOM export function.
