3D Imaging
2D Dose

Low Dose: CBCT in a 2D Image Dose Range

Indication-based diagnosis using CBCT images in the same dose range as 2D X-ray images is now possible with the Low Dose mode. It‘s optimized pre-filtering preserves dense structures such as bone even at a highly reduced dose, so it can be used easily and efficiently in many specialist fields, for example, orthodontics or implantology.

Your practice will be even more flexible, because depending on the patient case you decide: whether to use your Orthophos SL to obtain high-resolution, focused volumes for the finest of structures (HD), balanced images for general questions (SD), or Low Dose imaging for minimum radiation doses.

More Safety for You and Your Patients

When low dose makes the difference.


While working with children an extra level of caution is of essence. Nevertheless, there will be cases in which 2D imaging just cannot supply the necessary information. With the low dose mode now both worlds can be combined: the low dosage level of a panoramic image to protect the young patient and the information level of a CBCT image for the best treatment.



Even with the best planning and the best treatment, you still want to be absolutely sure your implantation was a complete success. Only a CBCT image can supply the necessary information to be 100% certain, but is the dose worth the benefit? With low dose: yes. You can assure your patient that everything went well at the dose level of an intraoral scan.

Low dose in the practice.
