Tru-Align can benefit the doctor with improved diagnostic quality images, and benefit the patient and office staff with significantly reduced scatter radiation exposure. Tru-Align incorporates rectangular collimation which greatly reduces scatter radiation, resulting in clearer, crisper images with greatly improved image resolution.
Using the Tru-Align with your x-ray head results in a 60-70% reduction in radiation exposure to your patients. A round cone acts like a shotgun so radiation exits the cone in a spreading pattern. Approximately 10% of the beam actually hits the receptor. Many photons are scattered into the patient’s tissues or reflected back onto the receptor as “noise” or “fog”, compromising the image resolution diminishing the diagnostic quality.
Tru-Align acts like the scope on a rifle. The beam is only 2% larger than the receptor. There is almost no scatter effect … noise … resulting in clearer, crisper images with greatly improved image resolution. Tru-Align beeps and flashes when its LED laser alignment system determines the target receptor is in perfect alignment with the photon beam, eliminating cone cuts and retakes.
