Planmed has provided its improved Planmed Verity® CBCT scanner to the 2018 Ice Hockey World Championships in Denmark. The scanner is part of the setup at the on-site emergency rooms both at Royal Arena in Copenhagen and Jyske Bank Boxen in Herning. Planmed Verity will be used to diagnose fractures in extremities and the maxillofacial area, as well as dental injuries throughout the tournament.
The Planmed Verity CBCT scanner will help the medical staff at the 2018 Ice Hockey World Championship to provide high-quality first aid treatments at a fast pace. It has already successfully been used in this capacity at World Championships in previous years and has received positive feedback for its performance.
Juhamatti Malm, Planmed’s Director for Product Portfolio and Business Development, is excited about providing the scanner to such a renowned event.
“We are excited to be able to supply our renewed Planmed Verity scanner to the World Championship,” Malm states. “From past experience, we know that it is very useful when diagnosing injuries quickly, and helps players and teams to focus on their games.”
Planmed Verity was recently enhanced with improvements that have made the CBCT scanner even more versatile. The new Planmeca CALM™ movement correction algorithm helps cancel the effects of patient movement, preventing human errors and making imaging more predictable.
In turn, the Planmeca Ultra Low Dose™ imaging protocol has reduced the scanner’s already low patient doses by 50% without compromising image quality, which means that 3D images can now be obtained at a dose close to standard 2D imaging. In addition, the Planmed Verity’s new head and neck imaging mode allows capturing even more precise images of the entire dental area.
We at Planmed would like to wish good luck to all teams competing at the 2018 Ice Hockey World Championships and hope that all players remain healthy in their games!
