5. Functional System Description
ScanX Swift is a self-contained digital imaging scanner/eraser system
that utilizes reusable photostimulable or Phosphor Storage Plates
(PSP) in place of X-ray film to produce quality digital radiographs.
These wireless flexible sensors are durable and reusable thousands
of times when properly handled. Upon exposure to X-rays, the
plate stores a latent image, which is scanned by the ScanX Swift.
After scanning, the image is processed via the user-supplied
computer running authorized software and ready for viewing
in seconds. In addition to immediate display of the resultant
images, the software allows image enhancement processing,
storage (hard drive or CD), and sharing/retrieval.
An additional feature of ScanX Swift includes a patented in-line
erase function that removes the latent image 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.

that the unit is not moved in any way whatsoever, as the
moving parts must be allowed to stop moving completely.
8.1 Room for Set-up.
 ScanX Swift should be set up in a closed, dry and well-ventilated room.
 Room temperature should not fall below 50°F (+10°C) or exceed 95°F (+35°C).
Danger of short circuit due to condensation.
ScanX Swift can only be put into operation once the
unit has warmed up to room temperature and is dry.
Do not install in a utility room, e.g. in a boiler room or in a wet room.
 Set up in ordinary room light. Avoid direct sunlight and bright interior lighting (more than 800
lux) directly above the inlet guide.
 There must be no source of interference in the room for set-up (e.g. strong magnetic field).
Any such disturbances can interfere with the operation of the ScanX Swift.

In order to avoid problems when scanning the image
data, ScanX Swift should be set up so that will not be
subject to knocks, vibration or similar.
8.2 Counter Top/Table Set-up.
ScanX Swift may be located almost anywhere in the office. Follow these guidelines for optimum performance:
 Provide a stable, flat counter top large enough to hold the scanner.
 Locate the computer within 6 feet (length of USB cord provided).
 Locate ScanX Swift no further than 6 feet from an AC outlet.
 Make sure to leave the socket outlet easily accessible, so that the unit may be
unplugged if necessary. The power supply adapter is the Mains disconnect device.
8.3 Monitor.
Monitors designed for digital X-ray processes with a higher light intensity and broad contrast range
should be used. Strong room lighting, direct sunlight and reflections all serve to reduce the diagnostic
capabilities of the X-ray exposures.

11. Barrier Envelope
11.1 Barrier Envelope Use.
 Protect the plate from contamination and dirt.
 Protect the plates from stray light.
 Available in different sizes just like plates. Select appropriate
size (Size #0, #1 or #2).
WARNING
Danger of cross contamination when not using the barrier envelope
or when using the barrier envelope more than once.
• Do not use a plate without a barrier envelope.
• Do not use the barrier envelope more than once
CAUTION
Loss of image information and functional interference on using
the incorrect barrier envelopes
• Only use Air Techniques plates and envelopes.
Figure 11-1.
Typical Air Techniques
Barrier Envelope
11.2 Barrier Envelope Handling.
Always guard against contamination by using standard infection 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.
12. Plates
12.1 General.
CAUTION
Loss of image information and functional interference on using
the incorrect plates.
• Only use Air Techniques Plates.
ScanX Swift is operated in combination with Air Techniques plates in size #0, #1 and #2. (See 4.1,
System Components.) Each size of plate requires the matching barrier envelope. Exposure of the
plate must always be carried out on the active side:
Active side:

The active side is light blue. This side is also marked with an “a” positioning guide.
Inactive side:

Page 14
The inactive side is black. This is printed with the size and manufacturer´s information.
Furthermore, in one corner there is an “a”; this replaces the slight indentation found on
conventional X-ray film. This positioning guide should always be set in the direction of the
occlusal plane to allow easier orientation of the resulting X-ray image.

12.2 Working with Plates.
Plates must be visibly checked for signs of damage. Damaged plates (e.g. a torn outer layer, or visible
scratches, which will affect the diagnostic quality) must be replaced.
 Plates are flexible like X-ray film.
 Do not bend or subject to pressure.
 Do not scratch or get dirty.
 Do not put in an autoclave.
12.3 Storing Plates.
 Store plates in a dark place.
 Do not store in hot or moist conditions.
 Store intraoral plates in a barrier envelope of the appropriate size.
 If a plate is stored for longer than 24 hours, then it should be erased again before
the next X-ray exposure. See section 13.8.
 Protect from direct sunlight and ultraviolet beams.
 If stored in the X-ray room itself then the plates must be protected from pre-exposure
caused by scattered X-ray radiation.

12.4 Cleaning Phosphor Storage Plates.
For the best images, plates should be handled carefully and kept
clean. Use specially formulated PSP Cleaning Wipes (P/N B8910)
to clean all plates. 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 12-3, 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 12-3. PSP Cleaning
Plate must not be put in an autoclave.
Always use standard infection control procedures when
handling devices that contact the patient.
12.5 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.
12.6 Disposal of Phosphor Storage Plates.
Consult with your federal, national, state and local government, for rules and regulations on disposal
of Phosphor Storage Plates.
2
The Barrier Envelope must be used only once and
disposed of properly in accordance with local code.
12.7 Preparing Intraoral Plates for Patient Use.
Insert the erased plate 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 Figure 12-4.

Operation
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.
12.8 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).
CAUTION
Loss of image information and damage to the device can occur if using the incorrect inlet guide.
• Always use the correct size of inlet guide for the plate being used.
• Before each scanning phase compare the size of plate with the markings on the inlet guide.
13. Plate Scanning with Swift

13.6 Preparing Multiple Exposed Plates for Batch Scanner Processing.
Use the optional Transfer Storage Box when performing batch processing. Keep the exposed plate
away from light once removed from the barrier envelope. Always keep the sensitive side away from
any light source to minimize image loss.
1. Disinfect the Barrier Envelope (with plate still inside) 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: When using optional transfer box, be sure that the sensitive side of the PSP is facing down
as it lands on the in the box (See Figure 13-4, View C). If the plate is not sensitive side down, TURN IT
OVER IMMEDIATELY. Failure to do so may result in erasure of the PSP.
3. Lay the box on a flat surface near the ScanX Swift as shown by Figure 13-4, View A.
4. As shown by Figure 13-4, 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 Transfer Storage Box or some other container or cover.
b. Tear the envelope lengthwise starting at the notch to eject the PSP onto the box or surface.

15. Maintenance
15.1 Yearly Scheduled Maintenance.
Like all precision products, the ScanX Swift 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. Yearly service carried out
by an Air Techniques trained and certified technician will ensure
continued uninterrupted operation. These routine checks help to
detect general overall wear, and replacement of parts can often be
made before a problem occurs.
15.2 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 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 Swift outlet pad area or other surfaces
that could cause scratching of the plate. Make sure to review the
Plates information provided by section 12 of this manual.
