3DISC Launches FireCR Dental Reader at 2012 RSNA

Nov. 21, 2012
Compact, affordable system improves productivity and optimizes chairside time with patients

CHICAGO — 3DISC Imaging, a manufacturer of digital imaging products, has launched a compact, affordable computed radiography system for the dental market designed to provide rapid, high-quality reading of reusable dental imaging plates.

With its small footprint, the FireCR Dental Reader fits seamlessly into even the most space-challenged dental offices and exam rooms, improving productivity and optimizing chairside time with patients. The FireCR Dental Reader will be introduced at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) meeting in Chicago Nov. 25–30 at Booth No. 4406.

The FireCR Dental Reader’s elegant design combines with a powerful yet easy-to-use system. The reader is DICOM 3.0 compatible with existing systems and uses reusable bite-wing and intraoral imaging plates that are easier and faster to position than intraoral digital sensors. Importantly, a true size 4c imaging plate is available, so technicians don’t have to use software stitching to combine images from two size 3 plates—a cumbersome and inefficient process. Unlike some systems, there also is no need to purchase and use protective covers for imaging plates—eliminating extra steps and expense.
