Olympus develops standards for dental imaging and digital photography

Feb. 5, 2002
The standards will benefit both dentists and their patients in the clinical setting by facilitating accurate diagnoses and treatment planning, as well as making the comparisons of pre-op and post-op images much easier.

The standards codify optimal magnification ratios, camera positions and patient positions necessary for creating standard dental views -- full face, full smile, retracted dentition and maxillary and mandibular occlusal. In addition, the standards address optional views such as close-up face, mouth at rest, retracted with shade tab and close-up anterior views.

Instrumentarium Imaging has been invited to supply its dental extraoral and intraoral X-ray units for the upcoming Winter Olympics.
