Sensor has a direct USB connection, new image capture technology, and enhanced ergonomic design.

DES PLAINES, Illinois--DEXIS has released the Platinum sensor.

While maintaining the comfort and single-sensor concept of its PerfectSize sensor, DEXIS Platinum now combines direct USB connectivity, TrueComfort design, and PureImage technology for digital imaging.

DEXIS offers connectivity with a direct USB digital X-ray sensor that is more durable and portable for use in multiple operatories and fieldwork. Dental team members should benefit from the integrated USB functionality that allows direct connection to the computer.

There are no adapters, controllers, or docking stations. Simply "plug-n-ray."

To maximize patient comfort and ease-of-use, DEXIS has enhanced its ergonomic sensor housing. As part of TrueComfort design, the DEXIS Platinum Sensor's refined beveled corners and its rounded casing help ensure there are no sharp edges against the patient's tissues.

The new smaller, angled dome on the back of the sensor incorporates the patented WiseAngle cable exit that increases comfort and efficiency for placement. These features help make radiographic procedures easier for patients and staff.

Well-defined subtleties in X-ray images are vital to diagnosis. Thus, DEXIS has developed PureImage technology--a combination of sophisticated software and hardware components. With 16,000 shades of gray generated by a 14-bit analog-to-digital converter, clinicians are able to visualize the slightest variations in densities.

The sensor's high resolution provides more than 20 visible line pairs to offer image clarity and virtually no visual noise. Plus, the design maximizes active area at the pixel level, bringing out the smallest details.

With a 2.2-megapixel size, images remain crisp when enlarged. These advancements allow the DEXIS Platinum Sensor to deliver clinically meaningful images that are clear and detailed.

Adding to its clinical value, the DEXIS Platinum Sensor has an enhanced quantum efficiency, which makes it receptive and efficient when capturing X-ray images across a range of radiation settings.

This delivers the ability to reduce the number of retakes due to under- and overexposure, as well as ultimately lower radiation dosages. The sensor produces optimal, consistent images whether using with the latest intraoral X-ray unit or an older model.

"We have built our reputation by providing the best in digital radiography technology for more than a decade," stated Rick Henriksen, vice president of sales. "It is our belief that this commitment to the technology and to the dental community is the principal driver behind our success. It is our ongoing pursuit of excellence that has led us to deliver the DEXIS Platinum sensor."
