La Clínica Universitaria de Odontología cuenta con una nueva máquina de última generación cedida por VATECH
On Wednesday, 16 May 2012, the UIC Faculty of Dentistry signed an agreement with the South Korean multinational Vatech, the world leader in digital imaging systems and X-ray technology, through which the company has loaned the UIC the PaX-Uni3D imaging system.

have access to practical training with this new imaging system, in line with
the Clinic’s guiding principles of innovation, quality teaching and the use of
different techniques and materials.
The agreement was arranged by José Cercos de
la Vega, the Managing Director of Vatech Spain; Valentino Cha, the Marketing Director
of Vatech; Andreu Lagè, the Head
of Sales of Vatech in Catalonia and Valencia; Antonio Barreiro, the Marketing Director
of the Barreiro Medical Group; Joan Vidal, the General Manager of the Faculty of
Dentistry and the CUO; Lluís Giner, the Dean of the Faculty of Dentistry; Leontina
Vinaixa, the CUO Director; and Jordi
