Specialized Medical Device for Digitizing X-ray Films
Paper scanning is an office task and can be done with general office equipment. Medical film digitizing is an imaging procedure governed by medical and industry regulations. VIDAR's Dental Film Digitizer is specifically tailored for dental applications and is the only digitizer that meets U.S. and European guidelines for dental applications. Digital images can now legally replace the original x-ray film. Special attention must be paid to the unique challenges of accurately and reliably visualizing the details in medical films an opinion and/or decision will be made about patient care based on these images. VIDAR employs specialized optics to deliver quality results specifically for transmissive materials such as x-rays, not reflective media. The Dental Film Digitizer is designed to accurately render the full grayscale data with minimal noise throughout the specified grayscale density range, and has a unique ADC (Automatic Digitizer Calibration) feature that ensures excellent grayscale reproduction.
The Dental unit comes with its own TWAIN software for Windows 7 that is designed to plug into Dental practice management software from companies like Dentrix, Kodak and Patient Gallery, and produce TIFF images of the Pans, Cephs and Bitewing films.
