SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwire - August 20, 2007) - TeraRecon (, a leader in advanced imaging processing technology and solutions, today announced the launch of a new dedicated web site for its PreXion 3D Dental CBCT scanner. The launch of the site coincides with the upcoming International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI) World Congress XXV and 10th Annual IPS Symposium to be held from August 23rd to 25th, 2007, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in San Francisco, CA.

TeraRecon Director of Dental CBCT Sales Sabine Nahme said, "We are pleased to participate as Gold sponsor of this year's ICOI congress, where we will conduct ongoing demonstrations of PreXion 3D throughout the meeting including a scheduled afternoon workshop on August 23rd in the 'Seacliff D' room at 3:45 PM. During this open workshop, participants can explore and discover the capabilities and exquisite image quality of the PreXion 3D scanner and its unique, client-server software architecture which delivers advanced 3D visualization to any PC in the dental practice. We will also demonstrate the export of PreXion 3D scan data to 3rd party implant planning software products."

The PreXion 3D scanner was introduced to the US market earlier this year, with the first customer installation completed in June. To date, approximately 50 PreXion 3D units have been installed globally including those in use by TeraRecon's team of world-renowned luminary advisors. Dr. Arun K. Garg commented on PreXion 3D: "After using several scanners, the office staff and I agree that this is absolutely the best one when it comes to image quality, ease of use, office space utilization, and return on investment."

The revolutionary PreXion 3D CBCT scanner obtains the most projection images at high magnification, and as a result, achieves excellent image quality and optimum balance between resolution and field of view. Thanks to TeraRecon's unique XTrillion processor, image reconstruction is completed in 30 seconds for 512 projections or 90 seconds in high-resolution mode when 1,024 projections are obtained in a single 360° rotation.

PreXion 3D has been designed for use in implantology, general dentistry, oral-maxillofacial surgery, and periodontology practices. The accompanying PreXion 3D software includes real-time 3D visualization with exquisite image quality, along with a real-time panoramic view to provide the clinician with accurate assessment of bone and surrounding anatomy. The software enables evaluation of potential implant receptor sites and identification of the mandibular canal throughout a series of cross-sectional images, allowing for highly accurate measurements from the nerve to the crest of the arch or in relation to the maxillary sinuses.

Affordably priced, the PreXion 3D scanner is designed for dental offices that seek to perform in-office surgical implant procedures and can be installed at almost any location that previously provided space for a panoramic X-ray.


Thanks to the unique client-server 3D imaging technology developed by TeraRecon and validated with thousands of clinical users worldwide, PreXion 3D is delivered equipped with PreXion 3D Viewer which can be installed on any PC in the practice for real-time access to all the post-scan image review capabilities available on the scanner itself, including 3D visualization, panoramic view, cross-sectional reconstructions and marking of the mandibular canal. All this is achieved using real-time streaming and hence does not require a powerful PC or time-consuming transfer of the scan data to where the images are viewed. This convenient feature saves on hardware costs for client computers, and removes the delay of image transfer caused by the technology architecture of competing technologies.
