PaX-Reve3D Dental CT to Be Recognized at MDEA Ceremony

Secaucas, N.J. – April 8, 2010 – Vatech America, maker of the world’s most advanced dental imaging equipment, today announced that it has won a 2010 Medical Design Excellence Award in the category of dental instruments, equipment, and supplies.

This prestigious award, presented by Canon Communications, honors companies in the medical technology field for outstanding achievements, and is the premier awards program for the medical technology community.

Commenting on the competition, Dan Cutrone, Director of Marketing at Canon Communications said, “The MDEA competition recognizes the achievements of medical product manufacturers and the many people behind the scenes—engineers, scientists, designers and clinicians—who are responsible for the groundbreaking innovations that are changing the face of healthcare.”

vatechVatech America has won the 2010 MDEA award for its innovative PaX-Reve3D Dental CT, which is the first of its kind to realize the Free FOV function to extend the areas of diagnosis. In addition to this fully customizable FOV, the PaX-Reve3D offers the smallest voxel size, fantastic image quality, extremely low x-ray dosage and MAR (Metal Artifact Remove) Technology.

These features, combined with the most advanced software systems, enable users to freely select the region of interest and size the FOV accordingly based on the need or purpose of diagnosis. This improves the accuracy and efficiency of a diagnosis without unnecessary radiographic interpretation of pathology.

“We are excited to have won such a prestigious award, and are proud of the advances our team continues to make in dental CT technology. The revolutionary thinking and innovative spirit this award represents are the core principles that allow Vatech America to offer every dental practice endless possibilities to achieve higher standards in dental treatments around the globe,” says Yoon Park, President of Vatech America.

The MDEA competition is open worldwide to companies and individuals involved in the design, engineering, manufacture or distribution of medical devices or medical packaging. The type of award (silver or gold) that will be presented to each winner will not be revealed until the awards ceremony, which will take place on Wednesday, June 9 at 11:00 a.m. in New York City’s Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. The awards ceremony will occur in conjunction with the Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M) East Exposition & Conference, which will be held from June 8 to June 10, 2010.

Latest News

There remains a growing belief among clinicians that obturation is to blame for endodontic failures. This notion has more recently fallen under scrutiny as researchers have discovered that the most thorough obturation can only reflect the quality of the cleaning and shaping of the canal. In fact, a number of researchers point to the thorough use of irrigants — making sure that the debris and irrigant itself are lifted completely out of the canal, not forced out the apex — as the most important determinant in the long-term success of an endodontic procedure.
