Published: Nov 19, 2007
ELMSFORD, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AFP Imaging Corporation (OTCBB: AFPC.OB) announced today that it has been granted a medical device license from Health Canada, the federal regulator of drugs and health products, to market the company’s NewTom™ VG 3D Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) Scanner in Canada. The NewTom VG provides clinicians with detailed three-dimensional, radiographic images of the teeth and jaws while allowing patients to stand, sit, or remain in their wheel chairs while being scanned. The unit’s small footprint makes it ideal for in-office examinations when space is limited. The primary applications are for diagnosis and treatment planning in dentistry and otolaryngology (ENT), including dental implants, orthodonture, and maxillo-facial surgery, as well as ear, sinus, and airway imaging.
