Upgrades to NewTom VGi and Adds 3D Mobile Cone Beam Imaging Service 2010-07-23

(Elmsford, NY, June 2, 2010,) AFP Imaging Corporation (OTC. AFPC.PK) announces that McCormack Dental Imaging in Southern California and C?Dental X?Ray in Northern California, the single largest customers of the NewTom 3D Cone Beam Imaging scanners in the US, have upgraded all 12 of their locations from the NewTom 3G to the NewTom VGi. Additionally, McCormack Dental Imaging has expanded its service to include 3D Mobile Imaging as the growth of the NewTom VGi Flex and mobile imaging fleet continues to reach across the country. This latest 3D Mobile Cone Beam unit will operate out of San Diego County and provide enhanced onsite service to both doctors and patients, delivering the highest caliber images for which the NewTom VGi is known. C?Dental X?Ray has provided the bay area dental community with quality imaging services for over 70 years. Its reputation for state?of?the?art technology and services to doctors and their patients has enabled continued growth and success. When asked about the blanket upgrade to the VGi, Jerry Peck, CEO explained “With the responsibility of owning multiple dental imaging centers, I’ve always felt the most important ideal to hold on to is the ALARA principle (As Low as Reasonable Acceptable) with respect to X?ray radiation dose. NewTom is one CBCT manufacturer in dental radiography that truly adheres to the ALARA concept. NewTom achieves this with its proprietary Safe Beam™ technology where initial scout images set the mA based on the density of the patient’s cranium and automatically adjusts to provide the lowest dose with the highest image quality.” Peck continued, “I personally feel that the Smart Beam™ technology in the NewTom VGi, along with the .3mm focal spot, medical grade rotating anode and flat panel make it the best machine in dentistry today, bar none.”
