4. Digital Intra-Oral Film Processor
BIDC uses digital intra-oral film processors to develop its x-ray imaging plates with:
- VistaScan from Durr Dental
- Sopro PSPix and Sopix from Aceton
The VistaScan Mini image plate scanner is an award-winning image plate diagnostics unit. The plate scanner enables faster processing. Dentists at BIDC uses this compact device for x-ray and scanning directly at the chairside that allows full flexibility on image formats.
Thanks to PCS technology, the Germany-made VistaScan Mini can reliably resolve and show caries lesions down to minute details. The unit provides rapid image availability in just 6 seconds on in the direct vicinity of the patient. Its thin, flexible image plates provides patients with a more pleasant and comfortable experience thanks to their special coating.
VistaScan Digital Processor
Dental assistant develops small digital x-rays without any chemical base. Using digitalized intra-oral x-rays and film, radiation dose exposure to patients is reduced to a mere 10% compared to conventional film x-ray.
PSPix and Sopix
PSPIX is a new digital imaging plate system that is thin and flexible with an active area optimized to 100%. PSPix has four sizes of imaging plate with a automatic readout process of 4.3 sec.
Sopix dental x-rays integrates the best of modern technology. The ACE technology is a Sopro exclusive process that makes it possible to control the amount of x-rays accumulated by the sensor. ACE technology is integrated in all SOPIX series sensors. It analyzes in real time the amount of x-rays accumulated by the sensor and freezes the image acquisition as soon as it received the radiation required to provide a good-quality image. Thus, it protects each image from overexposure. In order to improve patient comfort, the corners of its sensor are rounded for easier placement inside the mouth.
The integration of SOPIX inside sensor into the X-Mind’s intraoral x-ray system and combined ACE technology allows a unique worldwide communication. This solution stops the x-ray emission to minimize patient exposure. The patient only receives the necessary dose adapted to their dental morphology. ACE technology reduces the patient’s dose by up to 52% as compared to a standard exposure. Through this unique data transfer between SOPIX inside and X-Mind unity system, the dose received by the patient is now traceable and is a revolutionary technology in intraoral radiology.
Sopix combined with PSPIX the digital imaging plate system makes intra-oral imaging at BIDC dental clinics easier and more efficient.
