SYSTEM DESCRIPTION
ScanX is a digital imaging system that utilizes reusable Phosphor Storage Plates (PSP) in place of X-ray
film to produce diagnostic quality intraoral digital radiographs. ScanX produces a digital image by
scanning PSPs, which have been exposed to X-rays. ScanX allows computer storage, processing,
retrieval and display of the computed radiographic images utilizing a user supplied software and
computer. An additional feature of ScanX consists of an in-line plate eraser function that removes the
latent image from the plate immediately after scanning. This design provides an efficient one-operation
scanning and erasing process leaving the user with a PSP ready for the next X-ray procedure.

PLATE CARE & PREPARATION
Prior to performing the intraoral imaging procedures on the following pages, the user must be familiar
with the care, handling and preparation of the Phosphor Storage Plate (PSP) in order to ensure successful image scanning. Figure 5 shows the configuration of a typical Intraoral Size #2 PSP.
Printed Side
Tube or
Sensitive Side
Figure 5. Intraoral PSP Configuration
Handle PSPs with Care.
 Avoid scratching or soiling PSPs.
 Do not bend PSPs or apply unnecessary pressure.
 Do not store PSPs in a hot or moist area.
 Protect the PSPs from direct sunlight and ultraviolet rays.
 Pick up the PSPs using two fingers around the edges to avoid unnecessary contact with the plates.
CAUTION: Always use a Barrier Envelope for each Intraoral plate. Exercise care in handling the plate so
as not to scratch the sensitive surface or nick the edges.
Plate Protection
When storing Intraoral PSPs use the plate transfer box. Place the PSP covered with a Barrier Envelope with
the sensitive (front) side of the PSP facing down into this box for protection and safekeeping.
IMPORTANT:PSPs must always be erased prior to use.
Note: Use PSPs within 24 hours of last erasure. Repeat erasing process if PSPs have been
stored longer than 24 hours.
Erase the PSP
Each Intraoral PSP should be used (i.e. X-ray exposed and scanned) within 24 hours of erasure since
natural radiation will add noise to the PSP. Erase PSPs by simply using the ScanX In-Line Erase Feature.
This can be accomplished using one of two methods as follows:
Note: Both erasing methods will result in an erased PSP suitable for reuse. The user will not observe
any difference in ScanX operation when using either method.
Method #1
Perform the Imaging Procedures for PSPs on page 18. Except when performing step 4 of the
Activate Scanner procedure, select the Erase option from the installed authorized imaging software
to activate ScanX. This method does not scan the plate and no image will be acquired.
Method #2.
Perform the normal Imaging Procedures for PSPs on page 18. This method scans the plate and the
imaging software may acquire a “junk image” (scanned latent plate image) that should subsequently
be deleted from the imaging software (image folder).
Air Techniques, Inc.
Page 15
PLATE CARE & PREPARATION
Cleaning Phosphor Storage Plates
For the best images, PSPs should be handled carefully and kept
clean. Use specially formulated PSP Cleaning Wipes (P/N B8910)
to clean all PSPs. These single-use, extra soft, 100% polyester
fabric wipes will not scratch or damage while safely removing dust,
hair, dirt and smudges from the imaging surface. Use one wipe
and clean plates as follows:
1. As shown by Figure 6, gently wipe the PSP Cleaning Wipe
over the dry Plate surface. Wipe back and forth and then
in a circular motion.
2. Allow the plate surface to air dry. Make sure that the PSP is
completely dry before re-using.
Figure 6. PSP Cleaning
Disinfecting the Phosphor Storage Plates
There is no reason to routinely disinfect the PSPs unless contamination is suspected. If a PSP has touched
a contaminated surface, it may be immersed briefly in a cold sterilant (such as a 2% Gluteraldehyde
solution) according to sterilant manufacturers directions. Do not immerse the plate if there is any
evidence of deep scratches in the surface of the plate or nicks in the edges of the plate. After disinfection,
clean and dry the plate using the instructions above.
Disposal of Phosphor Storage Plates
Consult with your federal, national, state and local government, for rules and regulations on disposal
of Phosphor Storage Plates.
Barrier Envelope Handling
Always guard against contamination by using standard infectious control procedures when handling
individual barrier envelopes. It is best to discard suspected contaminated envelopes since no cleaning
or disinfection procedure exist or are required for barrier envelopes.
2
The Barrier Envelope must be used only once and
disposed of properly in accordance with local code.
Preparing Intraoral Plates for Patient Use
Insert the erased PSP into the Barrier Envelope so the printed side of the PSP is visible through the transparent
side of the envelope. Peel off the adhesive strip and seal the envelope. See Figures 7a - 7c below.
Figure 7a
Insert the PSP.
Page 16

Air Techniques, Inc.
IMAGING PROCEDURES
Note: 1. The orientation letter “a”, printed on the PSP, may be used for reference as you would use the dot on
an intraoral X-ray film. In addition, a backwards “a” (i.e. “ a ”), appearing in an image, is an
indication that the image has been flipped.
2. If using holders with alligator clips, it is advisable to file down the points to avoid puncturing the
Barrier Envelope. It is important to take care not to puncture the Barrier Envelope or damage
the PSP.
Take an X-ray Image
Put an image on the PSP by performing the following procedure.
1. Place the erased intraoral PSP in the sealed Barrier Envelope into the patient's mouth exactly as you
would use X-ray film. Make sure the opaque side of the Barrier Envelope is facing the tubehead.
2. Take the exposure. The X-ray dose may typically be reduced by 80 - 85% of that required for
D-speed intraoral film (depending on X-ray system used; the actual X-ray dose should be determined
through experimentation).
3. Wearing gloves, remove the exposed PSP from the patient's mouth and place to the side making
sure the sensitive side of the barrier envelope is facing away from any light source.
4. Repeat steps 1 through 3 as necessary to complete the patient's X-ray series. When all necessary
plates in the X-ray session have been exposed, prepare each plate by performing the procedure
below.
Preparing the Exposed Plate for Scanner Processing
1. Disinfect the Barrier Envelope (with plate still inside) and your gloves by washing with disinfectant
hand soap and water. Dry the Barrier Envelope thoroughly.
2. Remove gloves and wash any powder from hands. Powder on a PSP will degrade the image, and
an accumulation of powder in the scanner will lead to degradation of scanner performance.
IMPORTANT:
Be sure that the sensitive side of the PSP is facing down when it lands on the PSP Transfer
box (See Figure 8, View C). If it is not sensitive side down, TURN IT OVER IMMEDIATELY.
Failure to do so may result in erasure of the PSP.
3. Lay the PSP Transfer box on a flat surface near the ScanX as shown by Figure 8, View A.
4. As shown by Figure 8, View B, remove the exposed PSP from its washed and dried envelope as follows:
a.Hold the enveloped exposed PSP, with the printed side facing up, parallel to and about an inch
above the PSP Transfer box.
b.Tear the envelope lengthwise starting at the notch to eject the PSP onto the PSP Transfer box.
5. As shown by Figure 8, View C, the PSP is now ready to be scanned to read the image from the PSP
by performing the Intraoral Imaging Procedures.

image type and resolution.
5. Verify that the two Scanner track indicators illuminate green when the Scanner has been activated,
indicating that PSPs can be fed into the corresponding Plate Guide.
Scanning and Erasing Plates
Scan and erase an intraoral PSP in one operation by performing the following procedures.
1. Grasp a PSP by short edges between your thumb and index finger. See Figure 10.
2. With printed side facing you, carefully and quickly insert the PSP into the corresponding Plate Guide
slot as far as possible.
3. Immediately press the PSP all the way down with your fingertip (from position Figure 11 to position
Figure 12) until the scanner's transport mechanism takes over and the PSP moves down on its own.
4. Verify that the track light illuminates yellow, indicating the Plate Guide slot is in use, the PSP has
been sensed and the Scanner is transporting the PSP.

IMAGING PROCEDURES
Scanning and Erasing Plates (continued)
Note: Up to two PSPs can be processed simultaneously. One PSP at a time can be inserted into each Plate
Guide as long as the corresponding track indicator light is illuminated green. The next PSP may be fed
into a Plate Guide slot only after the corresponding track indicator LED changes from yellow to green.
5. Observe that a red glow emanates from the scanner exit slot.
6. Repeat steps 1 through 5 to process additional PSPs as necessary. Another PSP may be fed into any
Plate Guide slot as long as the track indicator light illuminates green.
7. Observe that each scanned and erased PSP drops into the receiving tray at the bottom of the
scanner. Since ScanX default operation is with the erase mode enabled (blue LED indicator above
the ERASER switch is steadily illuminated), each PSP is erased and ready for reuse.
8. Observe that all transport indicators illuminate green and the red glow from the exit slot extinguish
after the last PSP drops to the tray.
CAUTION: Always use exercise care in handling the PSPs so as not to scratch the sensitive surface or nick
the edges.
9. Retrieve the processed (scanned and erased) PSPs for reuse or storage. Make sure not to scratch
the sensitive surface or nick the edges when removing from the scanner outlet.
10.View and save each scanned image using the user-supplied authorized Imaging Software.
IMPORTANT: PSPs will not be erased after scanning when operating ScanX with the eraser disabled.
PSPs must always be erased prior to exposure to X-rays for new images.
Scanning Plates without Erasing
ScanX can be operated with the in-line eraser feature turned off. When the eraser mode is disabled, ScanX
scans the same as when the eraser is enabled except that the PSPs are not erased after scanning. Scan an
intraoral PSP without erasing the image by performing the following procedures.
1. Activate the scanner by performing the procedures on
previous page.
Note: Upon activation, ScanX defaults with the eraser mode
enabled. This must be disabled prior to scanning to prevent erasing of the scanned PSP.
2.Disable the eraser mode of operation by pressing
the membrane ERASER switch located on the Keypad
Control Panel. See Figure 13.

MAINTENANCE
Maintenance Procedures
ScanX is designed for many years of trouble-free operation. Maintenance as described herein is minimal.
IMPORTANT:Do not spray solvents or liquid directly on the scanner.
Cleaning ScanX
Turn off ScanX, disconnect the line cord from the Mains wall outlet and disconnect the computer
connection cable from ScanX before cleaning. Wipe the outside surfaces with a soft paper towel dampened
with a disinfectant solution or non-abrasive household cleaner. Be careful not to allow solvents TO RUN
OR DRIP into the unit. This could cause damage to ScanX. Allow to air dry before plugging in or turning
back on.
Disinfecting ScanX
No disinfection is required for ScanX.
Cleaning the Plate Guides
Wash the Plate Guides with a non-abrasive cleaner and water. Dry thoroughly.
IMPORTANT: Plate Guides must not be put in an autoclave.
Note: Always use standard infection control procedures when handling devices that contact the patient.
Disinfecting the Plate Guides
There is no reason to routinely disinfect the Plate Guide unless contamination is suspected. If a Plate
Guide has touched a contaminated surface, it may be immersed briefly in a cold sterilant according to
sterilant manufacturers directions. After disinfection, clean and dry the Plate Guide using the instructions
above.
Cleaning the Plate Transport
Over time, small debris and dust can accumulate in the plate transport mechanism causing a loss in image
quality and possible damage to the PSPs.
To ensure optimal ScanX performance, the plate transport should be cleaned once per week using a new
ScanX Cleaning Sheet each time. Sheets can be purchased from your dealer. Refer to ACCESSORIES
page 24.

Air Techniques, Inc.
MAINTENANCE
Phosphor Storage Plates (PSPs).
PSP's are subject to "wear" on the black side during normal handling and use. They can appear scratched,
while the sensitive blue or white side remains relatively "smooth". This scratched look on the black side has
absolutely no effect on the quality of the image and should be expected under normal conditions. If the
phosphor side is scratched make sure the plates are being handled properly and not being dragged from
ScanX tray area or other surfaces that could cause scratching of the plate. Make sure to review the Plate
Care and Preparation information provided on page 15 of this manual.
SCHEDULE MAINTENANCE
Like all precision products, ScanX requires a certain amount of care on a regularly scheduled basis. A
well-organized maintenance program aids dependable equipment operation and reduces problems to a
minimum. Routine checks help to detect general overall wear, and replacement of parts can often be
made before a problem occurs. Adherence to the maintenance schedule will ensure that ScanX Digital
Imaging System will continue performing at its best with uninterrupted service.
Understanding this, we have established two basic maintenance kits that will help insure continuous
operation of ScanX Digital Imaging System. The kits and their associated parts number along with the
recommended performance schedule are listed below. Please note that only a trained dealer technician
should perform service that requires replacement of internal parts.
IMPORTANT: All service requiring access to the interior of the ScanX must be performed only by an authorized dealer service technician with the proper training.

APPENDIX A - EMC DATA
Manufacturer’s Guidance and Declaration- Electromagnetic Immunity
The ScanX is intended to be used in the electromagnetic environment specified below. The
user of the ScanX should assure that it is used in such an environment.

Environment - Guidance
Portable and mobile RF communication
equipment should be used no closer to
any part of the ScanX, including cables,
than the recommended separation distance calculated from the equation applicable to the frequency of the transmitter.
Recommended separation distance:
Conducted RF 3 Vrms
IEC 61000-4-6 150 kHz to 80 MHz
Rediated RF
IEC 61000-4-3

d=1.16 √P
d=1.16 √P 80 MHz to 800 MHz
d=2.33 √P 800 MHz to 2.5 GHz
where P is the maximum output power
of the transmitter in Watts (W) according
to the transmitter manufacturer and d is
the recommended separation distance
in meters (m).
Field strengths from fixed RF transmitters,
as determined by an electromagnetic site
survey a, should be less than the compliance
level in each frequency b.
Interference can occur nearby devices
bearing the following symbol:
Note 1:At 800 MHz, the higher frequency range applies.
Note 2:These guidelines may not apply in all situations.
Electromagnetic propagation is affected by absorption and reflection from structures,
objects and people.
a Field strengths from fixed transmitters, such as base stations for radio (cellular/cordless)
telephone and land mobile radios, AM and FM radio broadcast, and TV broadcast can
not be predicted theoretically with accuracy. To assess the electromagnet environment
due to fixed RF transmitters, an electromagnetic site survey should be considered. If
the measured field strength in the location in which the ScanX is used exceeds the applicable RF compliance level above, the ScanX should be observed to verify normal
operation. If abnormal performance is observed, additional measures may be necessary, such as re-orienting or relocating the ScanX.
b Over the frequency range 150 kHz to 80 MHz, field strengths should be less than 3 V/m.

distance (d) in meters (m) can be established by using the equation applicable to the frequency of the
transmitter, where P is the maximum output power rating of the transmitter in Watts (W) according to
the transmitter manufacturer.
Note 1:At 80 and 800 MHz, the higher frequency range applies.
Note 2:These guidelines may not apply in all situations.
