The Evidence is Clear:
DEXIS Delivers More Consistent Images at Lower Doses.
DEXIS radiographs are more consistent and clinically useable at a wider range of exposure settings than those of the other sensor. Practitioners benefit from a reduction in the number of time consuming, exposure-related retakes. Patients benefit from the reduction in radiation.
Dynamic range refers to the broad range of exposures at which diagnostically acceptable dental images are produced. Even in the most prudent dental practices, minor positioning and setting issues may not be apparent at the start of an X-ray procedure. The DEXIS system is forgiving even when radiographic conditions are not ideal. DEXIS hardware and software work in harmony to compensate for radiation variances thus helping guard against under and over-exposure.
DEXIS’ quantum efficiency is a factor in outperforming the Schick 33 sensor at a wider dynamic range, and most importantly, at lower doses. More strict conditions must be met to achieve a diagnostically usable image with the other sensor. The result of a broader dynamic range is that practitioners benefit from a reduction in the number of time consuming, exposure-related retakes and patients benefit from the reduction in radiation due to exposure issues.
“I can’t remember the last time I had to retake a DEXIS X-ray because of image quality. It just doesn’t happen.”
