(Augusta, GA and Elmsford, NY, January 13, 2010; 3D Mobile Imaging of the CSRA and AFP Imaging
Corporation [OTC.AFPC.PK])

Dental practitioners in Georgia and South Carolina can now offer the latest technology and greatest convenience to their patients thanks to a new mobile dental radiology service. 3D Mobile Imaging of the CSRA is the only mobile NewTom Cone Beam 3D (CB3D) Imaging unit in the area to offer state-of the-art CB3D service allowing patients to be scanned at the dentist’s office. The new service is an alternative to the traditional “brick and mortar” dental imaging center and offers far less radiation than a medical CT scan. The mobile imaging approach eliminates the inconvenience to patients and practitioners of referrals to offsite specialty imaging centers. 3D Mobile Imaging is one of more than
24 different mobile imaging operations across the country utilizing NewTom Cone Beam 3D scanners, to deliver this unique service a market with an explosive demand.

Radiology is one of the most important tools in the diagnostic assessment of the dental patient and 3D imaging has become the standard of care for many dental procedures. According to Dr Arun Nayyar, DMD, a customer of 3D Mobile Imaging, “All of our Specialists and General Practitioners rely on the NewTom that 3D Mobile Imaging drives up to our multiple practice locations. Our patients appreciate the convenience, the prompt professional service and the expediency with which the reports are compiledand ready for our review. We have come to rely on the highest quality images that 3D Mobile Imaging’s

NewTom VG provides. The information is a great adjunct to our diagnostic decision making.” Capturing the  maxillofacial region in a scan provides the dental physician with a 3-dimensional representation of the maxillofacial skeleton. The NewTom VG unit provides life-size cross-sectional images of the mandible and maxilla to assess the quality and quantity of bone, and spatial orientation of critical anatomical structures for pre- and post-insertion of implant fixtures. Other applications include analysis for TMJ, Orthodontic, maxillofacial surgery as well as airway assessment essential for correcting obstructive sleep disorder.

The benefits of 3D Mobile Imaging and it’s NewTom VG apply to both patient and physician. On-site CB3D scans with immediate delivery to the doctor offer greater treatment acceptance and increased office efficiency, and prestige. The patient enjoys the ultimate in customer service, while getting a more accurate diagnosis and treatment plan for a more predictable outcome. Patients also will appreciate the continuity of care the practice provides including as little as 100 times less radiation when compared to a medical CT scan.

Lisa Dunn, owner of 3D Mobile Imaging commented, “I chose NewTom VG for my mobile imaging business for two main reasons; one in short is the image quality. The images from the VG are far superior to anything else on the market. Both the quality of the medical grade images and wide range of images being captured by the NewTom are critical to our success.” With doctors having referred patients for more than 1000 scans already, her customers agree.
“Secondly, with the on-going reports and wide spread public concern over the amount of radiation all patients are subjected to; the Safe Beam in technology inherent in all NewTom’s puts both my referring doctors and I at ease. By utilizing the proprietary Safe Beam technology, which automatically adjusts radiation based on the patient’s size, we are offering them a service which is a whole lot safer than sending them to the hospital for a standard CT. Today, we’re dealing with a patient that is more aware of pressing health topics and plugged-into more news than ever before, so they are asking the tough questions to their doctor about radiation and by using the NewTom VG we can certainly ease their concerns.”
