Gendex Announces CB-500 in HD!

I've had to keep this under my hat for a while as I've actually been using the HD in my practice sense January, but I was sworn to silence. At the Chicago Midwinter Meeting, Gendex has announced the GXCB-500 HD. The new CB-500 has a brand new sensor that provides incredible images.

For those of you who have already purchased the previous model, the unit can be upgraded to the new sensor. Here is all the info from the press release:

Gendex Redefines 3D Imaging with High Definition
Gendex proudly introduces the GXCB-500 HDTM. Continuing its history of innovation, this leader in imaging incorporates an advanced High Definition sensor into its award-winning Cone Beam 3D solution.
Des Plaines, IL (February 25, 2010) Gendex launches the GXCB-500 HD at the Chicago Dental Society Midwinter Meeting, February 25-27, 2010. Along with the new High Definition feature, the GXCB-500 HD offers scan flexibility, fast workflow, and integration capabilities.
“We understand that dentists want and need radiographic options that help them better treat their patients and follow ALARA,” states Mark Hillebrandt, Director of Product Management for Gendex. “Therefore, we are pleased to offer the GXCB-500 HD which delivers this and more — it allows clinicians to select 2D pans or 3D scans, to choose scan size options designed to work with certain procedures, and lets them blend technologies for a wide variety of treatment options.”
High Definition “HD” in the product name stands for “High Definition” image quality as defined by the precise i-CAT®-powered 3D scans and the enhanced image quality of its 2D panoramic radiographs using patented i-panTM image capture technology.
Most Flexible 3D Scan Formats The GXCB-500 HD has a unique, adjustable 3D Medium Field of View that can be sized from as large as 8 x 14 cm to as small as 2 x 8 cm. This allows for the greatest flexibility of treatment covering a host of procedures from TMJ to implants to endo.
High-End Traditional 2D Panoramic Included Along with the ability to reconstruct a pan from the 3D scan, the new GXCB-500 HD includes a traditional, low-dose, high-end 2D panoramic. This $40,000 value advantage is built into the unit, making it an even better investment.
Fastest “Scan-to-Plan” Workflow Time is a valuable commodity in the dental office; with the GXCB-500 HD, clinicians can scan and reconstruct in as little as 30 seconds — then plan immediately. The GXCB-500 HD allows doctors to have a patient in the chair and a plan on the screen in only a few minutes.
Integrated Applications With the demand for high-tech treatment applications increasing, doctors will benefit from the GXCB-500 HD’s open software architecture, which allows integration with specialized restoration, digital impression, and CAD/CAM planning programs to efficiently gain more precise, reliable restorative and surgical results.
Powered by i-CAT The GXCB-500 HD utilizes industry-leading Cone Beam 3D technology from i-CAT to deliver its clarity, flexibility, and speed in imaging.
