The TomoD System

The TomoD system is a nanotechnology-based 3D imaging system offering high resolution x-ray image quality.  The 3D image provides a layer by layer virtual dissection of the oral cavity, depth information and removal of structural overlap.

Our system utilizes an articulating arm which allows for placement of the X-ray source in any configuration to meet the dentist’s need.

The Software

Our 3D intraoral system has a reconstruction algorithm which will produce an image stack. This reconstruction algorithm comes bundled in our software package.

The software package is capable of acquiring and manipulating images as well. Our unique Loupe feature allows for concentrated 3D reconstruction in real-time on a localized region.  The software is also capable of connecting with existing patient and practice management systems.

The Technology

The 3D intraoral system is capable of producing a stationary, high resolution X-ray 3D image through the use of carbon nanotube (CNT) based X-ray sources.

CNT X-ray sources were developed and patented by the founders of Surround Medical Systems over a decade ago. The sources are capable of producing electron beams identical to conventional X-ray sources but without producing heat on the cathode. This allows for placement of multiple X-ray sources within a single X-ray tube.
