Kodak completes digital x-ray offering with PSP

Kodak has released a phosphor sensitive plate (PSP) x-ray system to complement its existing direct digital CMOS- and CCD-based intraoral, panoramic and cephalometric x-ray systems. The new Kodak CR 7400 is now available from local distributors William Green Pty Ltd.

"PSP-based systems have grown in popularity as they are an easy transition from using traditional films," said Ryan Green, Marketing Manager at William Green Pty Ltd. "Intraorally, the small, fully flexible plates mimic the handling properties of film and can be easily positioned in all areas of the mouth. The difference is that you place the exposed plate into a scanner rather than an x-ray processor.

"As the exclusive agents for Kodak digital dental x-rays in Australia and New Zealand, we can now offer a full suite of products that includes x-ray generators, intraoral digital x-ray sensors, digital panoramic and cephalometric systems and the new PSP scanner that can handle intraoral, panoramic and cephalometric phosphor sensitive plates.

"We can cater to our customers' personal preferences but we can also help a practice choose the best solution to cost-effectively manage their digital imaging requirements. There are many factors to consider including the size of the practice but because we can offer a variety of solutions, we can achieve the best result for the practice in every case."

The Kodak CR 7400 is a compact tabletop unit that has a similar workflow to film to minimize the learning curve. It can automatically complete a full mouth series scan without manual intervention at between 6.7 and 10.2 seconds per image (Panoramics take 74 seconds and Cephs 95). It includes a built-in automatic plate erase function that eliminates double exposures and reduces handling for greater plate longevity.

Existing x-ray equipment, positioners and techniques will all work with the system and the thin, flexible intraoral plates are available in sizes 0-4. The x-ray images, once scanned, can be displayed over your computer network and integrated with practice and image management software (including PracticeWorks, another Kodak company).

"Kodak offers practices a complete system that will cater to their imaging needs, now and in the future. All their products can be used stand alone or as an integrated package that can be augmented as the needs of the practice change. They literally have all the bases covered."
