Vatech, a global manufacturer of dental imaging devices, has reported the 20,000th sale of its EzRay Air. According to the company, the EzRay Air is the world’s first dental application of innovative CNT (carbon nano technology).
The EzRay series has been sold in more than 100 countries since its FDA and CE approval in 2017, Vatech said. It has become an essential part of a dental practice, used in conjunction with intra-oral sensors to identify lesions, the company said.
Vatech’s EzRay Air digitalizes the analog method of producing X-rays, enabling the user with immediate control of X-ray emission. Traditional analog methods require the heating of a filament to more than 2,300 degrees Celsius. In this process, the patient is subjected to unnecessary radiation. EzRay Air makes use of digital signals to control X-ray emission, eliminating excess emission and enhances image quality.
Notably, the P (portable) variation of the EzRay Air weighs only 1.8kg, which is much lighter than competing products. Its light weight enables clinicians to capture images easily without having to move the patient, and the accessibility to control the device through a single dial ensures convenience for the user. Sales continue to steadily increase thanks to the upsurge in its global reputation for the devices low dose, portability and usability, the company said.
Vatech’s CEO, Hyun Jung Hoon, said, “There has been no other company in the world in the dental industry that has succeeded in commercializing CNT technology since EzRay Air’s release. The 20,000 milestone is a monument to Vatech’s innovation. Vatech will continue to lead the digital revolution in a world where most of the users still rely on analog devices.”
