The advantages of PSP technology
Imagine an imaging medium as thin as a typical
business card, thinner even than a dental film pack.
Without wires, it is almost weightless and simple to
position. Flexible, comfortable economical. These are
reasons why Air Techniques chose Phosphor Storage
Plate technology. A PSP is inserted into the mouth like
film and to your patients it feels like film. There are
no wires hanging from their mouth. Because a PSP is
very thin, patients are highly unlikely to experience
discomfort. Accurate receptor placement is an
important determinant of diagnostic image quality.
A Phosphor Storage Plate has the significant
practical advantage of easier placement within
the oral cavity. Thinner and smaller than
a sensor, the PSP can be more readily
positioned perpendicular to the X-Ray beam,
eliminating image-distorting elongation or
foreshortening. PSP’s are very affordable
and may be used up to 3,000 times, or more.
PSP technology, outstanding image resolution,
speed and ease of operation makes ScanX your
best value choice for digital imaging.

Now ScanX has In-Line Erase. All models will read the PSP and then automatically erase it in one continuous
cycle. In-Line Erase saves time and simplifies your imaging process. Counter space is saved because the
need for a separate plate eraser is eliminated. These new ScanX models have the same rapid image cycle
times and compact dimension as prior models. If desired, you can override the In-Line Erase capability by
