Acteon Australia has launched two new sensors designed to improve digital workflow in dental practices: The affordable U-SENSE and U-SENSE HD.
Both the U-SENSE and U-SENSE HD sensors provide the benefits of outstanding picture quality, enhanced digital imaging workflow and high levels of patient comfort.
A-dec Australia product manager, Angie Wong, said Acteon's Fiber2pixel technologyw means users won't miss any details in their clinical images.
"Thanks to the CMOS sensor's HD multi-layer technology, the U-SENSE produces low noise and high contrast images, displaying the region of interest with outstanding sharpness," she said.
"All the anatomical structures are represented with great precision, allowing a faster and safer diagnosis. With an image resolution of up to 25-line pairs per millimetre (25lp/mm), the U-SENSE HD sensors provide very high-quality images for accurate and reliable dental diagnostics every time."
The Acteon U-SENSE and U-SENSE HD sensors are available in two different sizes - 200 x 300 mm - corresponding to size 1 and suitable for paediatric patients, periapical and endodontic images and the 260 x 340 mm sensor - corresponding to a size 2 film and ideal for occlusal and bitewing examinations.
Practitioners can choose the size that best suits their patients and the focus of their typical clinical examinations.
Designed to be as practical as they are powerful, Mrs Wong said the rounded corners of the intra-oral sensors had been designed to make the examination more comfortable for patients.
"Comfort in the mouth is a key element for reliable and accurate imaging and reducing patient anxiety," Mrs Wong said.
Quick imaging a real time saver
The Acteon Group has focused U-SENSE and U-SENSE HD on ease of use and simplification of the dental process to achieve the best results in record time.
"With an acquisition time of only three seconds, you can view your clinical images almost instantly during patient diagnosis," Mrs Wong said. "Simply connect the USB cable from the sensor directly to your computer to benefit from the clinical shots and share them with your patients."
Because of the 3-metre-long cable, practitioners can easily adapt the fully portable sensors to any sized surgery.
A shock absorption area has been integrated into the structure of the sensors to improve durability during day-to-day use.
These new sensors, which were launched at ADX22, are a more affordable alternative to the high-end Sopix2 premium sensor, also available from Acteon through A-dec dealers.
The new U-SENSE sensors are also compatible with the powerful Acteon Imaging Suite imaging software which allows the practitioner to easily and accurately monitor patient abnormalities.
The open architecture of Acteon Imaging Suite makes it possible to export images to patient management software and to also import information such as dental implant databases.
