PLATE CARE & PREPARATION
Prior to performing the intraoral imaging
procedures provided 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.
Tube or Sensitive
side
Figure 5. Intraoral PSP Configuration
Printed side
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 PSPs use the original box for Intraoral PSPs. Place the Intraoral 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 20. 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 PSPs on page 20. 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).

PLATE CARE & PREPARATION
Cleaning Phosphor Storage Plates
For the best images, PSPs should be handled carefully and kept clean. Use the
following procedure to clean plates:
1. Use lint-free, 100% cotton gauze (not cotton balls). Gently wipe the cotton
gauze over the dry Plate surface. Wipe back and forth and then in a circular
motion.
2. To clean any remaining stains, dampen the gauze in denatured ethyl alcohol
(1% denaturant) and wipe using the same motion as above.
3. Completely dry the surface by wiping with another piece of cotton gauze.
Make sure that the PSP is completely dry before use.
Disinfecting the Phosphor Storage Plates
IMPORTANT:
Do not soak overnight.
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 emerse 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 6a - 6c below.
Figure 6a
Insert the PSP.
Figure 6b
Peel off the adhesive strip.

Figure 6c
Seal the Barrier Envelope.
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. “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.
18
INTRAORAL IMAGING PROCEDURES
IMPORTANT:
Be sure that the sensitive side of the PSP is facing down when
it lands on the PSP Table Mat (See Figure 7, 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 Table Mat on a flat surface near the ScanX as shown by Figure
7, View A.
4. As shown by Figure 7, 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 Table Mat.
b.Tear the envelope lengthwise starting at the notch to eject the PSP onto
the PSP Table Mat.
5. As shown by Figure 7, View C, the PSP is now ready to be scanned to read
the image from the PSP by performing the Intraoral Imaging Procedures.

INTRAORAL IMAGING PROCEDURES
IMPORTANT:
Transfer the PSP from the PSP Table Mat to the Plate
Guide slot quickly. Always keep the sensitive side away
from any light source to minimize image loss.
Activate Scanner
Activate the ScanX by performing the following procedures.
1. Make sure the ScanX and computer components are correctly connected
as shown in Figure 4.
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, such as VISIX, to activate the
Scanner and to select the desired 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 long edges between your
thumb and index finger. See Figure 9.
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 9
to position Figure 11) 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.

INTRAORAL IMAGING PROCEDURES
Scanning and Erasing Plates (continued)
Note: Up to two 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.
5. Observe that a red glow emanates from the scanner exit slot.
6. 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.
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 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 such as VISIX.
IMPORTANT:
PSPs will not be erased after scanning when operating
the ScanX with the eraser disabled. PSPs must always
be erased prior to exposure to X-rays for new images.
Scanning Plates without Erasing
The ScanX can be operated with the in-line eraser feature turned off. When the
eraser mode is disabled, the 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 proTrack 1

5. The scanned PSPs still contain latent images that require erasure. Make
sure to erase each PSP prior to reuse for new images.
21
POWERING DOWN THE SYSTEM
IMPORTANT:
Never power down the system during a
scanning session.
The ScanX is designed to be left on continuously during the active day. At the
end of the day, or whenever desired, power down the system as follows:
1. Switch the ScanX from ON to Standby by pressing and holding the
membrane READY switch on the Keypad Control Panel for approximately two seconds, until the green LED above the READY switch
extinguishes.
2. Turn OFF the main power to the ScanX by placing the rocker switch
on the Built-In Control/Connector panel to the OFF (O) position.
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.
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:
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 26.
22
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 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.
