With the head and neck imaging option for the Planmed Verity® CBCT scanner, you can extend your capabilities to cover your ENT and basic 3D dental imaging needs. The exceptional image quality combined with patient and volume positioning options makes it possible to acquire images of the head and neck region with greater precision than before. Convenient positioning and open design help reducing anxiety for the patient.
Maximal patient comfort
The walk-in type of positioning makes the imaging of the head area fast and efficient. Patient comfort is maximized with two convenient sitting positioning choices, positioning trays, a positioning camera, and lasers. Imaging protocols are optimized for these to cover typical areas of interest such as sinuses, maxillofacial area, and teeth.
Automatic patient movement correction
Patient movement can deteriorate image quality and lead to additional scans. The Planmed Verity extremity CT scanner solves this problem with the intelligent Planmeca CALM™ algorithm, which can compensate for slight movements and provide improved, diagnostic-quality images.
The feature is particularly beneficial when imaging restless or lively patients such as children, individuals with special needs, or elderly patients. In addition, the algorithm can add value to any image by improving its quality. Planmeca CALM can be applied after an image has been captured for all anatomies and voxel sizes. The feature not only saves time for clinicians but also guards patients from unnecessary exposure.
Metal artifact reduction
Metal objects such as plates, inserts, and artificial joints can cause shadows and streaks in 3D images. Our intelligent algorithm suppresses these artifacts efficiently and reliably. The artifact removal algorithm is very flexible to use – you can either activate it before imaging or utilize it manually after the exposure.

Noise removal algorithm
The noise filtration protocol of Planmed Verity is a fantastic tool for achieving noise-free images without losing valuable details. The algorithm improves image quality when using small voxel sizes and allows lowering exposure values by reducing noise. It can be included in the imaging protocol or applied to the image after acquisition.
ULD – Ultra low dose with diagnostic image quality
The Planmed Verity scanner is also widely used in research projects. The clinical outcomes have been proven in various studies around the world. A list of publications with summaries can be seen below. Contents vary from weight-bearing studies to fracture diagnostics comparisons between modalities and patient dose analyses.
