Xios Scan

Intraoral PSP Scanner

Small Change. Big Impact.

Xios Scan provides a gentle, easy introduction into the world of digital X-ray imaging. If you want to switch from film to digital without having to give up your tried-and-true working methods, imaging plate technology offers you a myriad of possibilities. You can experience many of the advantages of digital imaging without a darkroom and chemicals while your team continues its regular workflow.

The Xios Scan integrates seamlessly with the Dentsply Sirona X-ray units and software to deliver better, safer and faster intraoral diagnostics.

Benefits at a Glance

Xios Scan is the perfect start into digital intraoral imaging.

Outstanding image quality for efficient diagnosis

Xios Scan works works with plates specifically designed for the scanner, achieving a resolution of 22 lp/mm

Smart software integration for high ease of use

All relevant settings are implemented first in Sidexis 4, and the scanning process itself starts automatically when an imaging plate is placed in the scanner

Scratch free scan process for reproducible image quality

For higher plate longevity without scratches hindering your best diagnosis, even with constant use

Tried and tested quality & smart design

Dentsply Sirona's "Made in Germany" quality and a compact design that fits even on limited workspace for real investment security

The device itself is one of the most compact on the market, so it fits even in confined work environments. During its conception, special attention was given to the unit's width, because that's what matters to keep your counter space as free as possible for other work.

For the best digital image quality and the easiest workflow

Xios Scan works at an outstanding resolution of up to 22 line pairs/mm (theoretical resolution). The result is exceptionally sharp and detailed images - ideal conditions for an accurate diagnosis. The images are transmitted directly to Sidexis 4, Dentsply Sirona Imaging's software, where they can then be further evaluated and diagnosed. The software provides simple controls for later editing of the visual impression of the X-ray in terms of sharpness, brightness and contrast.

Using the Xios Scan is very simple, thanks to its well thought-out operating design

All relevant settings are implemented first in Sidexis 4, and the scanning process itself starts automatically when an imaging plate is placed in the scanner. If the imaging plate is inadvertently inserted incorrectly into the scanner, the scanner automatically detects this and no recording takes place. This helps to avoid unnecessary re-imaging.

The scanner preserves the plates from scratches for a higher image quality and a lower disposable budget

The plate-insertion mechanism was designed so that the imaging plates are not under load. During the scan process itself, a laser-based scanning process prevents any scratch. This way, your plates have an extremely long life - for optimal picture quality and less plate orders even with constant use.

The most hygiene-friendly workflow

To insert a plate into the scanner, the workflow is both simple and hygienic. No contact between the used hygienic sleeve and the insert tray. And the unit itself has been designed to be particularly easy to clean (no cavity, no hole).

About Dentsply Sirona Imaging

What makes Dentsply Sirona the global leader in dental imaging systems?


No. The Xios Scan connects via Ethernet to the server with a unique IP address. This allows it to be accessed from any computer on the server. It is however recommended that it is placed with viewing distance of a PC monitor for optimum ease of use.

Xios Scan's system requirements follow those of Sidexis XG (from Version 2.6.2 - from Windows 7 onwards) and Sidexis 4 (from version 4.1.2). More details can be found under Sidexis 4 System Requirements.

Size 4 films can be used to capture occlusal images (where the plate is placed against the occlusal surface, rather than the lingual surfaces of the teeth), where it is exposed and used to diagnose fractures in the mandible or maxilla, as well as salivary stones. This diagnosis can be performed with greater ease using extraoral imaging options.

The image will still be captured, but mirrored (i.e. the tooth 1.1 will appear as 2.1) and a loss of image quality. The image can be reviewed inside the Xios Scan Plugin - if it usable, there is a mirroring tool within the Plugin, which mirrors the image to provide correct anatomical representation. Note - this can only be performed inside the Plugin and not within Sidexis.

The plate will be rejected and a message will be displayed on the unit’s screen, instructing the user to turn the plate over and insert it back into the scanner.
