DEXIS Platinum Sensor
The Platinum sensor lies at the heart of the DEXIS system.
This “plug-n-ray” solution features:
• PerfectSize™ Sensor—One Size Fits All
• TrueComfort™ Design
• WiseAngle™ Cable Exit
• PureImage™ Technology
• ScatterGuard™ Protection
• Direct USB Connectivity
• Custom-fit Holders
Remarkable Image Quality
The ability to see subtleties using digital radiography is crucial to diagnosis, collaboration, and patient communication. Through a combination of advanced hardware and software technologies, the DEXIS Platinum sensor is able to deliver clinically meaningful images that are extremely clear and highly detailed.
Fancy words, simple concept: DEXIS hardware and software work in harmony to compensate for radiation variances thus guarding against under and over exposure. That means you are able to get more clinically useable, more consistent images at a wider range of exposure settings. You benefit from a reduction in the number of exposure-related dental x-ray retakes, and your patients benefit from the reduction in radiation.
Anatomy of the DEXIS Platinum Sensor
TrueComfort™ Design and PureImage™ Technology
Through advanced hardware and software technologies, the DEXIS Platinum Sensor delivers highly detailed, extremely clear, clinically meaningful images.
(1) Beveled corners, a smooth, rounded casing and the small, angled dome
maximizes patient comfort and makes precise placement easy.
The patented WiseAngle™ Cable Exit (shown above) helps patients better tolerate the procedure and provides cable flexibility to reduce stress and increase reliability.
A premium quality Caesium Iodide scintillator (2) converts the X-ray beam into visible light and guides it through micro-columnar structures.
The light is then transmitted precisely to the sensor surface by Fiber optics (3). This efficient design allows a high signal-to-noise ratio resulting in clean images with virtually no visual noise.
The high resolution CMOS sensor (4) features an exclusive architecture that maximizes active area at the pixel level to bring out the smallest details in the X-ray image.
A 14-bit analog-to-digital converter generates 16,000 shades of gray to allow subtle variations in densities to be seen.
A smart design places all the electronics on the sensor’s back (5) to maximize the active imaging area. The on-board electronics provide the USB functionality allowing direct connection to the computer.
A protective shield (6) affixed to the interior wall of the rear housing protects the patient by preventing X-ray back scattering.
