Imadent was issued a US Patent for its ultrasonic jaw imaging system. The system includes a specially configured ultrasonic probe, a position locator module for defining the probe location and transmitting the definition to a computer which re-assembles the image. Imadent is one of the first companies that has been able to use ultrasound technologies to create high-resolution, cross-sectional images of hard tissues such as bone. The company’s technology allows for real-time imaging of a patient’s jaw during dental surgery, increasing the safety and efficacy and lowering the cost of dental implantation and other dental surgical procedures. “Imadent’s technology uses ultrasound, a harmless imaging technology, to image hard tissues such as bones, and that is a major breakthrough,” said BioEnterprise Corporation President Matt Jennings. “The proper placement of dental implants is critical as misplacement can cause permanent nerve or sinus damage. Imadent’s technology can significantly lessen the possibility of such damage, making the procedure safer, more affordable, and thus more attractive to both patients and clinicians.”
