The specialized digital X-ray laboratory at Gabrovo 5300, Raycho Karolev St. 2, floor 1, office 2 provides a wide range of high-quality services for head imaging.
The laboratory is equipped with equipment from the Finnish company Planmeca:
– intelligent multifunctional ProMax 3D digital scanner;
– dental kugel for intraoral sector photographs.

The installed equipment meets all the requirements of the standards of the European Union and the normative base for X-ray equipment of the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Bulgaria.

Planmeca’s equipment uses unique modern technologies that provide freedom in capturing the desired projection and maximum detail and clarity of images.

Planmeca ProMax 3D is a latest generation system with which all possible maxillofacial examinations can be done – panoramic, cephalographic and 3D. The presence of different volumes of reconstructions, as well as the so-called joining of volumes, which makes it possible to obtain maximum information about the patient’s anatomy.

The system’s digital sensor covers the entire dental area, giving extremely detailed and accurate information about the upper and lower jaw. This makes Planmeca ProMax 3D images very convenient for diagnosis and treatment in the field of: orthodontics, periodontology, implantology and maxillofacial surgery.

To obtain the images, Planmeca uses the so-called Cone Beam Volumetric Tomography (CBVT) technology, which achieves a significant reduction in the radiation dose for the patient compared to alternative research methods.

A unique patented Selectively Compliant Articulated Robot Arm (SCARA) technology removes the limitations of mechanical patient scanning through a robotic “C-arm” with three centers of rotation. The formation of the focal layer is based on scientific data on the shape of the human jaw and, by software preset, the curve of any jaw can be practically described.

Another unique Planmeca technology is the “Autofocus” program, which uses a special algorithm to position the front teeth in the focus layer.

To achieve a uniform contrast image, Planmeca ProMax 3D uses dynamic exposure control (Dynamic Exposure Control), in which the radiation parameters and the sensitivity of the sensor are simultaneously adjusted to eliminate blackened or underexposed areas.

Installed Planmeca digital X-ray machines provide the opportunity to:

2D radiographs
– sectional dental photograph;
– orthopantomography;
– cephalography;
– skull – face and profile;
– sinuses;
– temporomandibular joints.

3D tomography
– dental segment;
– upper jaw, lower jaw, upper and lower jaw;
– sinuses;
– temporo-mandibular joints;
– ear.

Digital images are generated in JPG or TIFF format (2D) and DICOM (3D). The software for viewing and working with the digital images is provided free of charge together with the studies performed (recorded on CD) or separately, on request. Depending on the doctor’s wishes, the images can also be printed on a plate or paper

The X-ray technicians of “Dental X-ray Laboratory” are experienced professionals who accurately reproduce the requirements of doctors in order to help them as much as possible in the process of diagnosis and treatment.
