Prexion's Excelsior CBCT unit

Having the smallest focal point allows us to reconstruct the CBCT 3-D image with incredibly sharp clarity. A good analogy is drawing a picture with a felt-tip pen versus a ballpoint pen—the smaller the point, the finer and clearer the image. However, having the smallest focal spot is just one part of the equation when reconstructing the clarity and detail. Our new Excelsior CBCT couples the smallest focal spot (0.3 mm) with the following: a voxel size of 0.1–0.2, 1024 volume size, 360° gantry rotation, and advancements in our software. It is all of this working in concert that delivers our image.
