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. All sensors are thick and rigid, and have
less imaging area for a given size. They may even
break if dropped. Sensors are such an expensive
component that companies offer insurance
policies for them; a burdensome expense
not needed when using a PSP. A single
size 2 intraoral sensor costs several thousand
dollars. In comparison, PSP’s are very affordable
and may be used up to 3000 times, or more.
PSP technology, outstanding image resolution,
speed and ease of operation makes ScanX your
best value choice for digital imaging.
Think about the benefits of ScanX Digital Imaging.
Ask yourself…
Do I want to offer my patients more advanced dental care?
Do I choose to lead in my field?
Do I want to enjoy more of my day practicing elective dentistry?
Do I want to benefit from superior diagnostic image quality?
Would I like to eliminate chemicals, darkroom and processor maintenance?
Do I require my equipment investments to produce tangible, significant return?
When you say yes, you say ScanX.
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
pressing a button.
