i-CAT™ FLX V-SERIES

Cone Beam 3D Imaging

The First Line of Upgradeable Dedicated 3D CBCT Machines

This dynamic system offers three maximum fields of view (FOV), V8, V10, and V17. Within these sizes, you also have the option to scale or collimate the scan height to capture only the area of interest per the patient’s immediate need. The system also provides enhanced low-dose imaging options through protocols and collimation, dedicated traditional 2D panoramic capabilities, and the feature-rich Tx STUDIO™ software, powered by Anatomage—all at a price point starting at under $90,000.

i-CAT™ FLX V8 – With 8 cm x 5 cm to 8 cm x 8 cm FOVs, this system accommodates those dentists who want to capture select treatment areas for survey, implant, oral surgery and endodontics.

i-CAT FLX V10 – The V10 offers a maximum and scalable FOV of up to 16 cm D x 10 cm H, helpful when you expand into larger cases and airway or TMJ analysis.

i-CAT FLX V17 – With a maximum FOV of up to 25 cm D x 17 cm H, the V17 is used most often by orthodontics, oral maxillofacial surgeons and oral radiologists.


Designed to accommodate the widest range of clinical applications, the V17 is the most flexible of the V-Series options. The V17 has a maximum and scalable FOV of up to 23 cm x 17 cm. The V17 is used most often by orthodontists, oral maxillofacial surgeons and oral radiologists; however, this system is appropriate for any dentist who wishes to view the entire oral-facial complex.

Applications

Applications for the i-CAT FLX V17 offer the most flexibility and image sizes for all 3D needs including orthodontics, orthognathics, airway analysis, and oral surgery.

Compatible with Tx STUDIO

The V8 represents your gateway into the world of industry-leading 3D CBCT imaging at an affordable price. With 8cm x 5cm and 8cm x 8cm FOVs, clinicians are able to capture specific areas of the anatomy instead of the entire oral-maxillofacial complex accomplished in one scan. Should the need arise for more coverage of the anatomy, upgrade to the V10 is simple. All V-Series systems use the same capture process, and the scan is viewed within the same 3D software.

Applications

Applications for the i-CAT FLX V8 include single implant, general practice, and endodontics.

FLX V-Series Low-Dose Options

Low-Dose Options

i-CAT QuickScan and QuickScan+ protocols allow you to take complete 3D images at a radiation dose comparable to a 2D panoramic image*. The flexibility in scalable scan sizes further allows you to limit the dose to the patient.


Open Platform

i-CAT FLX allows for an open platform when using your DICOM files. These files are not ‘locked’, giving you the freedom to use i-CAT-captured files in a wide array of programs including CAD/CAM applications and other dental equipment.


FLX V-Series Seat

Seated Position

i-CAT FLX is one of the few machines that provide a seated position for scanning. Ergonomic Stability System (ESS) allows for easy, seated patient positioning, designed to minimize patient movement and avoid unnecessary retakes and additional radiation.


FLX V-Series Tradition Panoramic

Traditional 2D Panoramics

Your “2-in-1” i-CAT FLX V-Series takes a traditional 2D pan using the same high quality sensor that is used to acquire 3D scans. Using your system to capture BOTH 2D and 3D imaging assists you with your ALARA goals and helps you transition to 3D imaging at your own pace.


FLX V-Series Sensor

Full 24.2 cm x 19.3 cm Sensor

All i-CAT FLX V-Series models come equipped with a full 24.2 cm x 19.3 cm sensor capable of yielding a full ceph height 3D scan (13 cm x 16 cm) in just 4.8 seconds. This allows owners the flexible freedom to upgrade their field-of-view without the need to replace the unit itself. The solution is simply an in-office software upgrade that opens the field-of-view to the next V-Series configuration.


FLX V-Series FOV

No Offset Scanning

With our PureScan™ technology and full-size sensor, i-CAT FLX V-Series scanners capture a 3D scan without compromising image quality. This full-beam scanning maximizes the use of the large sensor to provide more anatomical information at a higher quality compared to other smaller sensors.

Unlike the i-CAT FLX V-Series, some 3D CBCT imaging machines use a smaller sensor, which only captures half of the volume at a time requiring images to be stitched together. Offset or half-beam scanning allows a smaller sensor to shift and scan a slightly larger volume than its size, although the cost associated is the sacrifice of image quality and anatomical accuracy.


*Utilizing the i-CAT FLX QuickScan+ exposure protocol. Use of lower dosage imaging may only be suitable for certain diagnostic tasks. Image quality is proportional to dose.

 ​​

Your dental practice is unique—that’s why you need a flexible 3D solution that works with your practice and provides the control you need to deliver optimum care to your patients.

The i-CAT FLX V-series offers effective treatment planning and predictability to help general dentists and specialists alike by providing fast sizable scans, low-dose options, and dedicated specialty tools within Tx STUDIO, powered by Anatomage.

Implantology

Using the i-CAT FLX V8, V10 or V17, clinicians can place and restore with accuracy and confidence.

Treat patients with greater surgical predictability and confident outcomes using i-CAT’s 3D treatment planning tools. Use i-CAT’s high resolution, volumetric images and complete 3D views for a more thorough analysis of bone structure and tooth orientation. Collect precise data and map an entire course of treatment for surgical placement of the implant and abutment, all the way to final restoration.


 

I’ve been involved with CT Scans in implant dentistry for over 25 years, and I have found that the new i-CAT FLX cone beam unit has now changed the way I practice implant dentistry. The i-CAT scanners produce unparalleled images which are so crucial in the treatment planning of dental implants. Additionally, the flexibility of these units allows the clinician to collimate and select various fields-of-view, thus drastically reducing the radiation exposure to the patient.

Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

Tx STUDIO treatment planning software, powered by Anatomage, can assist in identifying deformities, such as cysts, tumors, lesions, and changes of the jaw, to avoid potential surgical complications.

Determine precise position of impacted teeth within the alveolar bone, as well as their proximity to adjacent teeth and vital structures, such as the nerve canal, sinus walls, and cortical borders.

Using the i-CAT FLX V8, V10 or V17, clinicians can place and restore with accuracy and confidence.
  • Treat patients with greater surgical predictability and confident outcomes using i-CAT’s 3D treatment planning tools.
  • Use i-CAT’s high resolution, volumetric images and complete 3D views for a more thorough analysis of bone structure and tooth orientation.
  • Collect precise data and map an entire course of treatment for surgical placement of the implant and abutment, all the way to final restoration.

 

With the i-CAT FLX in particular, I can capture quick, lower-dose exposures as needed. The system also has a QuickScan+ setting that allows for a full-dentition 3D scan at a comparable dose to a 2D panoramic image*. I can now take a follow-up scan for cases where reevaluation is critical and gain much more information than a pan offers. This allows for better monitoring — with significantly less radiation — during the healing process, and for early intervention, when indicated, for optimal long-term prognosis.

Orthodontics

With the I-CAT FLX V17, clinicians can understand exact tooth position and the relationship of anatomy so they can map the most effective, least invasive treatment plan for the best alignment. Correct root angulations and find supernumetary teeth and their exact locations to enhance communication with oral suregeons. Additional treatment modules in the 3D treatment planning software, including 3D cephalometric analysis, virtual studies and impressionless models, make planning even more powerful.

Enhanced communication with oral surgeons

Clinicians can utilize the image data provided by i-CAT FLX V17 and the 3D treatment planning software to correct root angulations and find exact locations of supernumetary teeth. Exploratory surgery may be prevented based upon the clinician's better understanding of the patient's conditions.

Additional Treatment Modules

Planning is even more powerful with 3D cephalometric analysis, virtual studies, and impression-less models. Incorporate CBCT scans in digital orthodontic treatment plans and personalized appliances, like Ormco’s Insignia. Learn More about Insignia >


 

The i-CAT FLX is an invaluable tool to diagnose, educate and treat patients. The i-CAT FLX has consistently helped me to achieve over a 90% acceptance rate. It’s just amazing!

Airway Analysis

Using the i-CAT FLX V10 or V17, clinicians can evaluate airway obstructions to help identify patients with an increased risk of a possible sleep disorder.

For patients with suspect airway or sinus tissues, you can use Tx STUDIO software to review the 3D data and to reveal restricted airways and determine appropriate treatments with precise anatomical views and measurements. Assess airway volume-at-a-glance using color-coded constriction values. Quickly trace airway on-screen to perform automatic calculations and measurements of paranasal sinuses to evaluate treatment options. i-CAT is FDA cleared to provide sufficient and appropriate data from 3D volumes of the maxillofacial anatomical structures, including the airway, to aid in the treatment planning of patients with OSA.


 

In my business, I have to figure out why people hurt and don’t breathe. Since orthopedic disorders of the TMJs and facial pain are often the result of breathing disorders, volumetric evaluation and the nasal, nasopharyngeal, velopharynx and hypo pharynx are absolute. My i-CAT reliability gives me this vital information with the lowest radiation dose possible. In fact, the i-CAT FLX does it so much easier with a fraction of the radiation.

Periodontics

Using the i-CAT FLX V10 or V17, clinicians can analyze bone structure.

From implant placement to surgical options for the management of bone loss, the i-CAT FLX provides periodontists with a wide range of services expected from the specialty. Capture 3D volumetric images for a more thorough analysis of bone structure as well as sinus and nerve location.

i-CAT imaging system provides options and a full complement of tools for implant placement. Use scan data to help plan the course of treatment of bony defects prior to the actual osseous surgery appointment. With Tx STUDIO software’s highly visual 3D presentation, share your diagnosis and plan with the patient for greater understanding leading to better post-treatment compliance.


 

Having an i-CAT increases safety for my patients and confidence for me. The information provided by the CBCT scan allows the practitioner to recognize anatomical conditions that would be otherwise undetectable on 2D radiographs. I can now do virtual implant placement, and I don’t have to guess on nerve location. All of the details that 3D offers ensure long-lasting positive treatment outcomes.
