February 18, 2011 — PreXion plans to showcase its new 3D cone-beam CT (CBCT) system, the PreXion3D Elite with CLEARimage scanning technology, at the Chicago Dental Society Midwinter Meeting next week.
The system also offers up to a 53% reduction in radiation exposure and up to a 50% reduction in scanning time, according to PreXion.
The enhanced PreXion3D software incorporates, and is integrated with, implant planning tools that allow clinicians to quickly and easily locate and mark the mandibular canal and nerves and place virtual implants, the company said. VISIT THEIR WEBSITE

….thread began before this posting, the objective was the raison d’etre for decompression prior to endodontics of a large cystic area. *Indeed Raf, and I could add that the main reason we want the lesion to become smaller, is the fact that these large lesions often encompass surrounding anatomical structures such as the apices of neighboring teeth, nasal antrum, maxillary sinus, etc. So enucleation of such a large lesion poses the risk of unnecessarily devitalizing teeth or surgical complications such as communication with anatomical structures.
Attached is a decompression case I started this week. Necrotic 12 with large LEO. Even after several weeks of Ca(OH)2, I was never able to get the canal completely dry and the symptoms never disappeared completely. Let’s see if we can decrease or even heal the lesion in this way. Keep you posted on this one.
