SYSTEM DESCRIPTION
The ScanX is a digital radiography system that utilizes reusable Phosphor
Storage Plates (PSP) in place of X-ray film to produce diagnostic quality intraoral
and extraoral digital radiographs. The ScanX produces a digital image by scanning
PSPs, which have been exposed to X-rays. The ScanX allows computer storage,
processing, retrieval and display of the computed radiographic images utilizing
a user supplied software and computer. An additional feature of the 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.

Figure 3. Typical Extraoral Plate 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 or transferring PSPs use a Plate Transfer Box for Intraoral PSPs or
an X-ray Cassette for Extraoral PSPs.
Plate Transfer Box. Place the Intraoral PSP covered with a Barrier Envelope
into the Plate Transfer Box with the sensitive (front) side of the PSP facing down.
Note:
Cassettes must not contain intensifying screens when using PSPs.
X-ray Cassette. Place the Extraoral PSP into the appropriate X-ray Cassette
with the sensitive (front) side of the PSP towards the Tube-side of the cassette
and close cassette.
16
PLATE CARE & PREPARATION
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 and Extraoral 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 Intraoral PSPs on page 20 or the procedures for Extraoral PSPs on page 22. Except when performing step 4 of
either Activate Scanner procedure, select the Erase option from the installed
authorized imaging software to activate the ScanX. This method does not
scan the plate and no image will be acquired.
Method #2.
Perform the normal Imaging Procedures for Intraoral PSPs on page 20
or the procedures for Extraoral PSPs on page 22. This method scans the
plate and the imaging software may acquire a “junk image” (scanned
latent plate image) that should be subsequently deleted from the imaging
software.
IMPORTANT:
Wipe the phosphor side of the plate only making sure not to
scratch the plates.
Cleaning Phosphor Storage Plates
For the best images, PSPs should be handled carefully and kept clean. Use the
following steps to clean plates:
1. Use lint-free, 100% cotton gauze (not cotton balls). Gently wipe the cotton
gauze over the dry Plate surface. Wipe using an even side to side motion and
then in a circular motion.
2. To clean any remaining stains wipe using an even side to side motion per one
of the following options:
Option 1 – Use Air Techniques PSP wipes (P/N B8910).
Option 2 - 100% cotton gauze dampen with anhydrous ethanol or anhydrous
isopropyl alcohol.
3. Completely dry the surface by wiping with another piece of lint-free cotton
gauze. Make sure that the PSP is completely dry before use.
IMPORTANT:
Do not soak overnight.
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.
17
PLATE CARE & PREPARATION
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 4a - 4c below.
Figure 4a
Insert the PSP.
Figure 4b
Peel off the adhesive strip.

INTRAORAL 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. “ ”), appearing in anaimage, 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
subject'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 subject'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 subject's X-ray
series. When all necessay 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 inside the box (See Figure 5). If it is not sensitive side down,
TURN IT OVER IMMEDIATELY. Failure to do so may result in erasure of the PSP.
3. open the Plate Transfer Box with the
lid away from you. Then, 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 open
Plate Transfer Box.
b.Tear the envelope lengthwise starting
at the notch to eject the PSP into the
open Transfer Box. See Figure 5.
Figure 5
Ejecting a Plate into the
Plate Transfer Box
4. Bring the Plate Transfer Box with all the exposed PSPs properly prepared
to the ScanX. The PSP is now ready to be scanned to read the image from
the PS by performing the Intraoral Imaging Procedures.
19
INTRAORAL IMAGING PROCEDURES
Configure the Intraoral Plate Guides. If the desired Plate Guides are not
in place, install these Guides at this time. Do not operate the scanner without
a full complement of four Guides in place. Any combination of Guides may be
used. See Figure 6.
Figure 6. ScanX with a full Complement of Plate Guides in Place.
IMPORTANT:
Transfer the PSP from the Plate Transfer Box to the Plate Guide slot
quickly. Always keep the sensitive side away from any light source to
minimize image loss.
Activate Scanner

1. Make sure the ScanX and computer components are correctly connected
as shown in Figure 1.
2. Switch the scanner from Standby to ON by pressing the membrane READY
switch ( ) located on the Keypad Control Panel on the top of the scanner.
3. Verify that both the green and blue LED indicators above the READY and
ERASER switches, respectively, illuminate. (Default mode has eraser ON.)
Note:
Change in motor noise pitch levels is normal when switching to different resolution setting selections.
4. Use the user-supplied authorized Imaging
Software to activate the Scanner and to select
the desired image type and resolution.
5. Verify that the four 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. Carefully open the Plate Transfer Box.
2. Grasp a PSP by long edges between your
thumb and index finger. See Figure 7.
3. With printed side facing you, carefully and
quickly insert the PSP into the corresponding
Plate Guide slot as far as possible.
4. Immediately press the PSP all the way down
with your fingertip (from position Figure
8 to position Figure 9) until the scanner's
transport mechanism takes over and the PSP
moves down on its own.
5. 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.

Up to four PSPs can be processed simultaneously. One PSP can be inserted into each
Plate Guide at a time 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.
6. Observe that a red glow eminates from the scanner exit slot.
7. Repeat steps 2 through 6 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.
8. Observe that each scanned and erased PSP drops into the receiving tray
at the bottom of the scanner. Since the 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.
9. 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.

MAINTENANCE
Maintenance Procedures
The 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 the ScanX
Turn off the ScanX disconnect the line cord from the Mains wall outlet and disconnect the computer connection cable from the 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 ScanX. This could cause damage to the ScanX. Allow to air dry
before plugging in or turning back on.
Note:
ScanX Cleaning Sheets cannot be used on the ScanX® Intraoral
(P/N B7100) because of height limitations.
Cleaning the Plate Transport
Over time, small debris and dust may accumulate in the plate transport mechanism causing a loss in image quality and possible damage to the PSPs.
To ensure optimal performance of the ScanX® (P/N B7350), the plate transport
should be cleaned once per week using a new ScanX Cleaning Sheet each time.
Sample sheets are included with the ScanX and additional sheets can be
purchased from your dealer. Refer to ACCESSORIES page 27.
Disinfecting the ScanX
No disinfection is required for the ScanX.
Cleaning the Plate Guides
Wash the Plate Guides with a non-abrasive cleaner and water. Dry thoroughly.
IMPORTANT:
Note:
Plate Guides must not be put in an autoclave.
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.
24
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 side (blue or white) 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 the 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 16 of this manual.
SCHEDULED MAINTENANCE
Like all precision products, the 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 the 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 the ScanX Digital Imaging System. The kits and
their associated parts number along with the recommended performance schedule
are listed below.
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.
