The DuoCeph Cephalostat was developed by a practicing dentist to provide trouble free service under the widest range of operatory situations. DuoCeph is manufactured to exceed federal regulations for x-ray head with maximum protection against scatter radiation.
DuoCeph features a Variable Aperture design to accommodate virtually any x-ray head. This allows relocation to a different X-ray without an expensive refit. The collimator construction allows either right or left hand mounting and the entire assembly can be easily detached from the wall for storage between uses. DuoCeph offers a wide latitude of mounting adjustments which makes installation feasible in situations others find impossible. A “QUICK MOUNT” System and VHS video tape simplifies mounting and alignment.
DuoCeph’s head/film holder uses a rack and pinion gear assembly to accurately and automatically center the patients midline.
This keeps the focal distance and magnification factor consistent regardless of head size or growth changes.
The ear rods are made of quarter-sawn white oak with minimal polymer finish for an attractive, strong, natural appearance, and are nearly invisible on the finished radiograph.
