The ATOM Max Dental and Diagnostic Head Phantom is designed to assist technical and clinical staff in the selection, monitoring, training and verification of scanning parameters common to most radiological procedures requiring fine anatomical details.

Ideal Tool for Dental CBCT and Panoramic X-ray

The ATOM Max Dental and Diagnostic Head Phantom provides a consistent tool for researchers, clinicians and technologists. It is ideal for determining optimum system settings, commissioning new equipment, monitoring system performance and training in dental X-ray, panoramic X-ray, CT and cone beam CT procedures.

The phantom includes an adjustable stand for positioning within a cone beam CT or panoramic X-ray system. The jaw of the phantom is slightly opened and front teeth are vertically aligned to replicate correct positioning with a bite guide. Please note that an actual bite guide cannot be positioned in this product.

Tissue Equivalent Materials

Our phantom is constructed of proprietary tissue equivalent materials. ATOM®Max is made of tissue simulating resins that mimic the X-ray attenuation properties of human tissue for both CT and therapy energy ranges (50 keV-25 MeV). The ATOM Max Dental and Diagnostic Head Phantom approximates the average male human head in both size and structure. The phantom includes detailed 3D anthropomorphic anatomy including brain, bone, larynx, trachea, sinus, nasal cavities and teeth. The bones contain both cortical and trabecular separation. The teeth include distinct dentine, enamel and root structure including the nerve. The sinus cavities are fully open.

Capabilities and Applications:

  • Commission X-ray, panoramic X-ray, CT and cone beam CT systems
  • Learn how to properly position head for optimal images
  • Test reconstruction techniques and algorithms for implant planning and maxillofacial reconstruction
  • Train and evaluate personnel during implementation of new equipment and techniques
  • Validate consistency of image quality
