Advanced Technology in Dental Imaging Benefits Patients

Dental imaging market to grow to over $1.4 billion by 2012, according to

Millennium Research Group

WALTHAM, Mass., March 10 /PRNewswire/ -- According to Millennium Research Group's US Markets for Dental Imaging 2008 report, the benefits associated with dental imaging devices such as dental cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) and digital X-rays will fuel sales in the overall market. Robust sales will translate into market revenues in excess of $1.4 billion by 2012, representing a compound annual growth rate of over 16% from 2008 to 2012.

CBCT systems reduce patient exposure to radiation. Additionally, the quality of the data that can be obtained from the images allows clinicians to spot conditions that are not normally caught using traditional imaging systems. The accurate images acquired from CBCT systems and the resulting superior diagnostic capabilities of the technology will contribute to rapid market growth.

The dental X-ray system market, comprising intraoral and extraoral X-ray systems, is growing primarily due to the increasing adoption of photostimulable phosphor (PSP) plate systems and digital X-ray sensors. Both types of X-rays eliminate the need for film, providing greater cost savings and avoiding the use of environmentally unfriendly processing chemicals.

"With these advances in dental imaging, practitioners can enhance patient understanding of dental conditions," says David Plow, Manager at Millennium Research Group. "Because images can be viewed instantly using these X-rays, practitioners can propose treatment options faster. Furthermore, allowing patients to visualize problems with their teeth encourages greater treatment acceptance."

Millennium Research Group's US Markets for Dental Imaging 2008 report includes information on dental cameras as well as CBCT and dental X-ray systems. This report includes coverage of many industry competitors, including AFP Imaging, Air Techniques, Ashtel Dental, Carestream Health, DEXIS, Digital Doc, Gendex Dental Systems, Imaging Sciences International, Instrumentarium Dental, Lester A. Dine, Planmeca, Progeny Dental, Planmeca, SciCan, Sirona Dental Systems, and Suni Medical Imaging.

About Cone Beam Computed Tomography

During a dental CBCT procedure, the patient's head is stabilized with a head holder while an X-ray source and an area detector perform a 360 degree scan of the patient's head. Detectors capture a cone-shaped beam that provides data about the patient's facial bone structures. Reconstruction software then can be used to produce 3-D views of the patient's facial anatomy and provide tracing of anatomical landmarks and measurements of bone height, width, and density.

About Dental X-ray Systems

Dental X-rays are diagnostic imaging systems that capture static images of teeth, bones, and surrounding soft tissue to help dentists identify problems with patients' teeth, mouths, and jaws. Intraoral X-rays are the most common type of dental X-ray; during an intraoral X-ray procedure, the X-ray film is placed inside the mouth. Extraoral X-ray images provide less detail than intraoral X-rays and are not used to detect problems with individual teeth. Instead, extraoral X-rays focus on the jaw and skull to monitor the growth and development of the jaws in relation to the teeth or bones of the face.
