What is DualFoc technology?
Normally, image plate scanners only have a fixed laser beam diameter for capturing data from image plates.
With the new DualFoc technology from ALLPRO Imaging, new optics make it possible for the first time to set two different laser beam diameters within the same scanner.
What is the advantage of this?
Unlike all other devices on the market, the ScanX Pro is the only scanner to fully utilize the properties of both the intraoral and extraoral image plates that are used.
Being limited to just one permanently set laser beam diameter for the scanning of the image plate means you are forced to find a compromise between high resolution and low signal noise. Through the use of two different foci, it becomes possible for the first time to define perfect parameters both for high-resolution intraoral plates and for the plates generally used for full-body images.
