Practices worldwide reap the benefits of popular digital imaging center.

Sirona Dental Systems, the world's only full-line dental equipment manufacturer, has announced that more than 1,000 ORTHOPHOS XG units have been delivered worldwide since the introduction in September 2004.

The ORTHOPHOS XG panoramic/cephalometric product family provides advanced direct digital imaging that sets benchmark standards for simple operation.

"We are proud to be a part of this great success, and are looking forward to 1,000 more", said John Smithson, Marketing Director - Sirona USA Imaging Systems.

"The American dental community is eager to embrace digital radiography, and ORTHOPHOS XG products are the most technologically advanced imaging products available today yet are remarkably easy to use. This ease of operation helps dental offices make the transition from traditional film-based x-rays to digital radiography effortlessly and enjoy the immediate benefits associated with new diagnostic capabilities."

The ORTHOPHOS XG product family offers a simplified approach and a practical design that deliver the benefits of direct digital imaging to any practice. ORTHOPHOS XG products reduce uncertainty and improve office efficiency with their intuitive features.

In all cases, access to patient images is available using any computer in the office using Sidexis XG Imaging software, and there are no extra licensing fees. Additionally, Sidexis imaging software is very flexible in its integration capabilities with many practice management and clinical software programs.

Further, the ORTHOPHOS XG product family is designed to encourage additional procedural capabilities as a practice or technology advances, making it a sound long-term investment.
