When trying to capture a successful medical or dental X-ray there is an ongoing fundamental conflict. On the one hand, you want to do whatever it takes to acheive maximum image quality, on the other hand, the radiation dose should be as low as reasonably achievable for the patient. At Dentsply Sirona we are dedicated to offering products that ensure exceptional image quality while supporting safe and ethical practice. When developing our products, we observe the internationally valid ALARA principle (as low as reasonably achievable).
Intelligent Low Dose
Thanks to the optimized low dose mode with a dedicated filter, the imaging of dense structures, such as bones, is possible at a greatly reduced dose. This makes Intelligent Low Dose an attractive and efficient option for many clinical situations. Whether in orthodontics or implantology - with Dentsply Sirona solutions you will find the optimum setting for every case.
The Direct Conversion Sensor (DCS) has revolutionized the standard of panoramic imaging. X-rays are converted directly into electrical signals. Thus, there is no signal loss due to light conversion, as is the case with conventional systems. The result: images with a high level of sharpness and contrast – even at an extremely low radiation dose. For accurate diagnostic information to support targeted treatment.
The image below shows a panoramic X-ray without and with DCS technology. Using the arrow, drag the control across the image to see the difference the direct conversion sensor makes to the image quality and diagnostic possibilities.
Only some parts of the image are in focus, while other areas are blurred.
The system detects the relevant areas from several thousand individual images in one cycle and automatically identifies the areas where the jaw is optimally positioned.
Dentsply Sirona 3D units work exclusively with Sidexis 4. Nevertheless data migration from Sidexis XG to Sidexis 4 is very easy. Sidexis 4 allows for the full digital experience with the latest tools.
Orthophos S 2D allows a 3D upgrade. Axeos is a dedicated hybrid unit. The Orthophos E does not offer this option.
