Acteon X-mind and PSPIX offer speed and image clarity

Kirrawee dentist, Dr Tim Clipsham, is one of the many dentists in Australia to benefit from the image clarity and ease of use of the X-Mind DC X-ray unit available exclusively from A-dec Australia dealers.


Dr Clipsham, who runs a general dental practice in the Sutherland Shire of Sydney, said he found the X-Mind X-ray very simple to use.

At Kirrawee Family Dental, the X-Mind Unit X-ray unit is used in conjunction with a compact Acteon PSPIX Phosphor Image Plate scanning unit. The revolutionary PSPIX is the smallest and fastest phosphor plate scanning unit available - processing a digital image in just seconds.

"Once the guys from Presidental helped me set up the PSPIX and the X-Mind in the surgery it hasn't missed a beat," Dr Clipsham said. "I find that I can position the X-ray head and take perfect images from different angles using various holders for producing bitewing and periapical images.

"The X-ray arm has a good reach to it and the PSPIX unit is very fast and produces very clear images."

The PSPIX is available with a range of different size phosphor plates which make it suitable for all patients including children and those with smaller mouth openings up to adults.

Phosphor plates are much smaller and more flexible than solid state digital sensors which make them more comfortable for the patient and are able to be positioned in tighter spaces.

The processing speed of the PSPIX means images are available quickly on a networked computer monitor, with one small PSPIX unit able to serve an entire practice with linked workstations.
