Digital X-rays deliver immediate results. The patient and doctor are able to view films chair side, decreasing the length of the patient’s visit while broadening the patient’s understanding. Digital x-rays allow the patient to virtually comprehend the doctor’s explanation of treatments and recommendations.
Worried about exposure to x-rays? Worry not; we use protective x-ray aprons that include collars that also protect the thyroid.
The ability to take vertical AND horizontal bitewings AND all periapicals with a single sensor eliminates the cost and inconvenience of using multiple sensors of different sizes.
Image capture and processing electronics have been fully integrated into the sensor itself, replacing the need for a separate adapter or docking station. DEXIS is the first to offer gold plating on the sensor’s USB connector for better durability.
Located on the sensor’s back, the patented WiseAngle™ Cable Exit helps patients better tolerate the procedure and provides cable flexibility to reduce stress and increase reliability.
The ability to see subtleties in X-ray images is crucial to diagnosis, collaboration, and patient communication. Through a combination of advanced hardware and software technologies, the DEXIS Platinum sensor is able to deliver clinically meaningful images that are extremely clear and highly detailed.
A premium quality Caesium Iodide scintillator converts the X-ray beam into visible light and guides it through its micro-columnar structures.
Fiber optics then transmit the light precisely to the CMOS sensor surface. This efficient design allows for a high signal-to-noise ratio resulting in clean images with virtually no visual noise.
Our high resolution CMOS sensor features an exclusive architecture that maximizes active area at the pixel level to bring out the smallest details.
16,000 shades of gray are generated by a 14-bit analog-to-digital converter allowing subtle variations in densities to be seen.
The enhanced quantum efficiency of this sensor makes it very receptive and efficient when capturing X-ray images across a dynamic range of radiation settings. Lower settings decrease patients’ radiation exposure.
At 2.2 megapixels, images can be displayed at ultra-large sizes to 1,692 x 1,324 pixels. Zoom way in without pixelation or loss of quality. To attain optimal, consistent images whether using the latest X-ray generator or an older model, the DEXIS hardware and software work in harmony, compensating for radiation variances and guarding against under and over exposure.
In addition, each image acquired using the DEXIS software includes a radiation dose indicator providing the clinician with visual feedback and a benchmark when increasing or decreasing radiation dosage.
