Sometimes when companies are pushing their latest and greatest technology you have to wonder if it is really worth it. We just purchased and installed the latest innovation in digital x-ray sensors (Dexis Platinum) for making intra oral radiographs. Wow, are these sensors great! The resolution of the images is four times better than our current digital sensors and requires only half the radiation to create the images. This is in addition to the 50% reduction in patient radiation dose we achieved when we originally moved from film based to digital radiography in 2003. In addition to being a safe and accurate technology, it is also environmentally friendly, as there are no chemicals that must be disposed of in the process.
