Since the very first model introduced in 1974, the Rotograph name has always been synonymous with panoramic radiography. Rotograph Evo takes the experience of five decades of dedication to X-ray diagnostic imaging to the next level. You can rely on over 33.000 manufactured panoramic units that have been successfully operating worldwide for years, from the smallest dental practice to the largest university hospital.
The 200kHz High Frequency generator provides accurate and efficient X-ray emission and produces excellent images with lower tube current than previous generation products, minimizing the patient dose. Shadows produced by the spinal column are reduced by an effective modulation of the kV value during the rotation of the overhead assembly. The result is a more uniform image in the incisors area and a constant magnification of the panoramic images, translating into an accurate geometrical representation of anatomic structures. Additionally, the correct collimator is automatically set for each exam, without any manual intervention from the operator.
A good patient alignment to the reference axis is obtained with two laser beams, while a three-point headrest, a chin rest with bite stick and angulated handgrips provide a stable positioning on the machine. A fast positioning is obtained thanks to the mirror. The focal layer can be electronically adjusted, without repositioning the patient, in order to compensate different arc shapes in the anterior region for patients with different jaw structure. Exposure factors and movement geometry can easily be adapted to the individual characteristics of each patient by selecting between adult and child programs and three patient sizes. The result is an optimal compromise between X-ray dose and image quality.
The high sensitivity of the Cs-I digital detector makes for a reduced X-ray dose and in case of wrong exposure settings, the digital image allows to extract useful information without retakes. Rotograph Evo D is already compliant to existing regulations on patient dose monitoring. The dose readout is calculated for each exposure and stored with the image without the need for add-on DAP measuring devices. Rotograph Evo D comes bundled with the Dental Studio software package that offers all the image processing tools required for your professional activity. DICOM functionalities (option) can also be added for integration into hospital networks.
One of the winning features of the new generation of Rotograph Evo D is undoubtlessly the standard Touch Screen control panel. With its practical operability and appealing design, this new user interface makes every function accessible with few touches. Icons, numbers and symbols are positioned in order to allow an immediate use, with very little effort for the operator. Moreover, the generous dimensions of the screen assure the best visibility in all conditions. The Rotograph Evo D offers the possibility to save images on a common USB memory stick, so the user can operate in total safety even in case of network damage, protecting the workflow from any consequences.
Rotograph Evo comes with two possible configurations: a single detector unit, that can be moved from the Pan to the Ceph position with a quick and simple operation, or a dual detector unit. Predisposed digital pan units can be upgraded to ceph with several upgrade options to help you plan your budget according to your needs, protecting your investment over time. A total of eight digital cephalometric programs gives you the flexibility you need for all patients, with the best combination of image area, acquisition speed and resolution. The cephalostat provides simple and gentle patient alignment for all projections, including lateral, frontal and postero-anterior.
The Rotograph Evo features as standard all the projections typically used in the dental practice: Standard Panoramic, Child Panoramic, TMJ open/closed mouth, Sinus. The optional Evo XP exams package increases the scope of application of your unit with the addition of several exams to target specific diagnostic needs. The Implant package for Rotograph Evo D is a valuable tool for taking transversal cross sections of the dental arch for preliminary implant evaluation and follow up. Differently from other machines that only limit this kind of exam to posteriors, the Implant exam on Rotograph Evo can be performed on any dental element.
The analogue version of Rotograph Evo accepts all standard 15x30cm flat cassettes. If your practice is equipped with CR phosphor plates not compatible with 15x30 format, you can request a specific cassette holder for using 24x30cm cassettes for panoramic images. The optional ceph arm can be installed at any time and accepts all standard format 18x24 cm, 24x30cm, 8"x10" cassettes and CR plates.
