SuniRay sensors radiation

Recent evaluation shows sensors require the lowest radiation to capture a diagnostic-quality dental X-ray.

SAN JOSE, California—The SuniRay Digital Radiography System—designed and manufactured in the U.S.—has been shown in an evaluation to require the lowest radiation to capture a diagnostic-quality dental X-ray.

With the concept of ALARA (As Low As Reasonably Acheivable) and clinical studies linking dental X-rays to health concerns, using equipment specifically designed for low-radiation exposure is becoming more and more of a requirement for dental practitioners globally.

The study by the CR Foundation in Provo, Utah, showed the SuniRay System to be sensitive to radiation exposure. This means that it required the least radiation dosage to produce a useful image.

“In most cases, the amount of radiation to which patients are exposed is minimal, and everyday sun exposure delivers radiation to people that they are not even aware of," said Paul Tucker, CEO of Suni.

"But, regardless of that fact, safety to patients continues to be a critical aspect in dentists selecting equipment to outfit their practices."

The different components of the Suni sensor and Suni’s proprietary sensor technology are married together in such a way that radiation is intended to be minimized to provide a safer environment for both staff and patients.

“This is the basis of Suni sensor development,” said Tucker. “Suni’s combination of sensor pixel size, scintillator, and fiberoptic technologies--a piece of everything so to speak--provides a diagnostic quality product that continues to rate high in the safety category.”
