i-CAT Announces New Release of the Treatment Planning Software
Posted on May 20, 2014
(Hatfield, PA) i-CAT is pleased to announce the new and enhanced Tx STUDIO™ 5.3 treatment planning software, fully integrated and exclusively for the award-winning family of i-CAT® cone beam 3D imaging products. Tx STUDIO delivers powerful treatment tools for dentists and specialists working with implants, airway, TMD, orthodontics, and surgical procedures, and offers a host of new tools to precisely plan an entire implant treatment – from surgical placement of the implant and abutment, to final restoration.
Implant cases can now be planned more accurately from the very beginning. With their desired functional results planned in the Tx STUDIO software first, clinicians can then plan the implant placement and abutment to achieve their goals.
Restoration planning has always been simple, fast, and precise with Tx STUDIO, and this newest launch brings even more robust tools to the process. The software allows clinicians to combine their 3D images with intraoral scans for a more complete representation of the anatomy, hard and soft tissues, to increase predictability and accuracy of implant placement and restoration design.
i-CAT provides the flexibility to work with the practice’s existing technology and workflow. Clinicians can choose to import STL files from either digital models or their intraoral scanner and easily register them with their i-CAT 3D scan in Tx STUDIO software. For working with the lab on custom abutments and crowns, the Tx STUDIO software facilitates easy sharing of STL files and 3D treatment plans. Improve communications with your lab by exporting STL files from Tx STUDIO so your lab can create the final restoration based on your exact design.
Additionally, Tx STUDIO 5.3 features convenient ordering of surgical guides from Anatomage directly through the Tx STUDIO software. i-CAT scans are universally compatible with all leading surgical guide providers to expand implant planning capabilities.
Other helpful tools now available with Tx STUDIO 5.3 are:
-The new Explorer tool that gives a view of the 3D volume with cross-sectional images of a particular point
for more detailed visualization of root fractures, sinuses, pathology and more
-Faster implant selection and placement when compared with previous versions
-New implant treatment reporting tool that conveniently auto-summarizes implants used in the treatment plan
-Improved DICOM tools for a more seamless integration with 3rd party software
-New Video Simulation Tool to better engage patients in their treatment plan
Tx STUDIO treatment software is included with new i-CAT cone beam 3D scanners, giving general dentists and specialists the tools to place and restore implants, perform oral surgery, periodontics, prosthodontics, orthodontics, and TMJ and airway analysis with greater confidence and lower radiation.
“We listen to our customer’s needs and respond with innovations to our products and software,” says Kalpana Singh, Director of Product Management for i-CAT. “The launch of Tx STUDIO 5.3 shows that we deliver those tools that are needed for more efficient and effective planning and treatment tools.
