Digital Technologies: Dental Visionographer
No branch of modern medicine can do without an X-ray machine. Do not become an exception and dentistry. Sometimes it is difficult for dentists to determine the causes of a disease without a reliable examination of the oral cavity, which includes an x-ray.
Several years ago, specialists received a film image of the oral cavity. But now there are new generation dental units - digital. Dental imaging( X-ray) is used in the most difficult cases.
What is a Visionograph?
A dentistry dentist is a sensor that receives X-rays and, after processing, sends a finished image to a computer. The use of the Visionograph allows to minimize the processing time and printout of the picture on the film. The sensors provide more accurate information.
In addition, the visionographer is not as harmful to health as an ordinary X-ray. It's all about the dose of radiation, which is several times reduced.
Now it is quite easy to find and buy a dental visiograph. What is it, we described above. More often there are wired devices that are connected to a computer. But more popular among dentists are wireless models due to affordability and convenience.
Advantages of the Visionographer in front of the X-ray
A vision is the process of creating and saving an X-ray image using a computer. The dentistry dentist works in much the same way as a conventional X-ray, with only one distinguishing feature - the pictures are displayed on the computer screen, rather than on the film. Thanks to the ultrasensitive electrode, the finished image appears in the program, which allows you to discover the cause of a disease, which is difficult to recognize when viewed.
Radiovisiographs are more often used in dental clinics, which have a number of advantages over the X-ray, or rather:
- an immediate diagnostic result;
- simple operation;
- low radiation( 5% of conventional X-ray).
Specialists in the field of medicine approve the use of digital technology, since the results of the survey can be stored for several years, which greatly facilitates the further analysis of the case histories. A dentist can at any time pick up a document from the archive.
More accurate sighting images are given not by X-ray, but by the diencephalograph. Photos in this case are not needed, because experts can view the image on the computer screen.
When choosing a device, you need to pay close attention to the method of obtaining a finished image. Several years ago, experts argued that more accurate information is given by a dental visiographer with a CCD sensor due to the absence of a "blind zone".But it is proved that this image is not accurate if compared with the C-MOS sensors, which give high-quality images.
In addition, an important nuance is the resolution of the image, because the standard does not usually exceed 14 pl / mm. Often in the description of the device is presented a theoretical, that is, an approximate resolution, so it is important to clarify this information. It is also important that the computer and the X-ray machine are compatible with the Visionographer.
It is desirable that the operating mode of the X-ray machine coincides with the sensor, and the computer is synchronized with the device for instant data transmission.
