Low exposure, high detail: Suni pleased with results from University of Texas sensor evaluation

San Jose, CA -- A recent University of Texas evaluation of the imaging properties of 20 intraoral digital systems found the SuniRay Digital Radiography System, along with two other products, capture diagnostic-quality dental X-rays using the least amount of radiation.

In a comparison between 20 intraoral digital systems, the SuniRay’s 0.38 optimal exposure was tied with two other sensors as the lowest.

Among these sensors, the SuniRay had the highest spatial resolution and contrast/detail detectability.

“This study just validates our efforts to build a perfectly balanced sensor,” said Paul Tucker, CEO of Suni.

The study noted the importance of contrast/detail detectability in intraoral imaging systems, citing a previous study finding contrast resolution to be the most desired characteristic in a new sensor.

“It’s important that a sensor finds the right ratio between resolution and contrast,” said Arya Azimi, Suni Director of Marketing. “We’ve designed our sensors so that we can achieve both high spatial-resolution and high contrast-ratio, without sacrificing one for the other.”
