Planmed Verity®

Planmed Verity® – 
Extremity and ENT CT scanner

Planmed Verity® utilizes CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) technology to provide high resolution volumetric (3D) images of the extremities and maxillofacial area at a particularly low dose.

Compact, stand-alone and mobile Planmed Verity can fit into almost any existing X-ray room and can be easily sited even side by side with other imaging equipment. With adjustable, soft surfaced gantry and dedicated patient positioning trays Planmed Verity provides versatile patient positioning and optimized patient comfort.

Key Facts

  • Either mobile or fixed configuration

  • Plugs into a standard electric outlet

  • Integrated workstation with touch screen

  • Isotropic resolution of up to 0.2 mm

  • Unique weight-bearing imaging

  • Dimensions (WxLxH): 76x184x160cm / 29,9”x72,4”x63,0”


Significantly lower radiation dose compared to competing systems

CBCT technology provides up to 10 times lower radiation dose compared to conventional MDCT scanners. Scattered radiation is low; depending on local regulations 1 mm Pb equivalent shielding is recommended. Planmed Verity Extremity Scanner can also be equipped with an integrated radiation shield to protect the patient during the scan.

XR-29 compliance
Planmed Verity supports NEMA Smart Dose Standard and the CT Dose Differential Payment Policy, which establishes a dose optimization standard and provides an incentive for providers to meet that standard.

Solve the challenge of movement artefacts with Planmeca CALM™

The new iterative Planmeca CALM™ (Correction Algorithm for Latent Movement) eliminates the need for retakes by cancelling the effects of patient movement, which makes it excellent for imaging more lively patients. The Planmed Verity® scanner can now be used with this revolutionary algorithm. This feature will not only save time for clinicians but also guard patients from unnecessary exposures.

Planmeca CALM can be applied after an image has been captured, but it can also be selected preventively before exposures. This ensures that volumes are automatically corrected already before they are transferred into the PACS system.

Planmeca CALM is available soon as an update for all Planmed Verity scanners!


DICOM 3.0 compliant 

Planmed Verity is fully compatible with hospital info systems and workstation softwares making it flexible tool for all imaginable work environments. 

Self-contained system and DICOM 3.0 conformant. Worklist management with touch-screen interface. Complete volumes or user defined slice stacks can be generated and archived to PACS or burned on a DVD with a viewer.

 


Awarded design and excellence in ergonomy

Ease of use and patient comfort have been key designing principles of Planmed Verity since the beginning.
