The new KaVo OP 3D
At the German Design Council’s German Innovation Award 2018, experts focused on people: All nominated contenders should positively influence the future. Accordingly, the jury honored innovation, user benefit, profitability and sustainability.
For more than 50 years, the word ORTHOPANTOMOGRAPH™ has been the synonym for innovations, ultimate reliability and clinically correct imaging quality. As the newest member of this near-legendary series, the KaVo OP 3D sets new standards in the dental market with its light, filigree design and numerous innovations. These characteristics convinced the specialist jury at the German Innovation Award 2018, which awarded the KaVo OP 3D with the "Excellence in Business to Business" category award.

Innovation always in focus: selection of optimum layer with ORTHOfocus™.
For panoramic programs, the innovative ORTHOfocus™ function automatically selects the optimised panoramic layer and displays it. The device scans several layers of the region of interest. The software searches each image pixel to select the sharpest point of a particular location on every layer to then combine its findings into an optimum image. The result: Consistently high image quality for every panoramic image as well as a reduced risk of retakes due to a higher tolerance to patient positioning, consequently leading to much faster workflows.
Innovation in 9 seconds: Fast scan time and immediate evaluation.
The shorter the exposure time, the less likely it is for patient movement to affect the result of the exposure. To optimise image quality, Fast-Scan enables panoramic images with an exposure time of only 9 seconds. Another innovation to offer a fast check of the exposure: QUICKcompose™ — available for panoramic, cephalometric* and 3D modalities — offers a quick preview of the captured image, allowing a timely evaluation. The image automatically appears on the graphical user interface as soon as the scan is completed.
Innovation becomes individuality: Customisable FOVs.
The KaVo OP 3D offers four defined 3D diameters based on clinical needs — plus the possibility of customising. FOV 5 x ø 5 cm with its endo resolution is optimised for single-tooth and localised diagnostics. FOV 6 x ø 9 cm offers the capability to scan either the lower or upper jaw, whereas FOV 9 x ø 11 cm combines both. With the largest, optional FOV 9 x ø 14 cm, TMJ and airway studies can be conducted. With the KaVo OP 3D you can benefit from a high number of flexible FOV sizes: SMARTVIEW™ 2.0 offers the possibility of selecting the FOV diameter and adjusting the height between 5 and 9 cm in 5 mm increments from the scout image.
Innovation for practice and lab: Unified software for efficient workflows.
The KaVo OP 3D is ready to be used with the DTX Studio™ software platform**, which will offer 2D and 3D diagnostics in a new world of integrated workflows. DTX Studio™ will be compatible with the operating systems of Microsoft and Apple. With more and more extensions added, it will connect existing and future devices and software to a unified ecosystem. Using the new DTX Studio™ software platform, your office will take advantage of a future constant stream of innovations and new enhancements that will cover all fields of modern dentistry and dental technology.
The award that makes innovation visible: the German Innovation Award.
Launched by the German Bundestag and donated by German industry, the German Design Council is committed to foster positive competition among companies. Since 1953, its competitions have been honoring design, branding and innovation achievements of an international standing. The German Innovation Award process is unique: Only companies that have been nominated by expert German Design Council committees can participate. This process preserves the award’s independence and excellence. The Innovation Award is judged by an independent, interdisciplinary jury of industry, science, institutions and finance experts.
