Innovations in 2D X-ray image quality

Even though 3D X-rays are increasingly becoming established in a growing number of dental practices, in many cases 2D imaging still has a rightful place, to a great extent due to radiation hygiene. It is a core component of modern dental diagnostics. In terms of improvements in image quality, the options available in 2D technology are far from exhausted. 2D X-ray devices from Dentsply Sirona score highly in daily handling thanks to technical innovations for unparalleled sharp images and operation that leaves nothing to be desired.

The Orthophos SL, for example, guarantees perfectly positioned, blur-free scans with its stabile 3-point patient fixation, patented auto-positioning with the occlusal bite block and Sharp Layer technology. The innovative direct conversion sensor technology (DCS) means that signal losses are avoided and there is an enhanced yield of image information with low doses.

These are just a few of the numerous innovations in the 2D imaging technology sector. On the following pages you can find out more about these and other product highlights that improve diagnostic accuracy in practice routine.

The Direct Conversion Sensor (DCS) ensures the optimal yield of X-ray radiation. The images are very precise – and it is possible to reduce the radiation dose.

Discover the innovations from Dentsply Sirona for 2D image quality:

ASTRA software

The ASTRA software algorithm considerably improves the quality of 2D panoramic and Ceph images. ASTRA (Anatomically Structured Reconstruction Algorithm) generates a structured image with higher contrasts without problematic edge artifacts.

Direct Conversion Sensor

The Direct Conversion Sensor (DCS) converts X-rays directly into electrical signals, with no information loss due to light conversion. The DCS sensor creates razor-sharp, high-contrast panoramic X-ray images of exceptional quality.

Sharp Layer technology

The sharp layer technology produces X-ray images in which the entire jaw is automatically shown in the sharp layer, taking the patient's individual anatomical features into account.

Occlusal bite block

The occlusal bite block greatly simplifies patient positioning because the device automatically determines the correct bite block height. This results in ideally positioned X-ray images every single time.

Because the dosage counts...

As low as reasonably achievable – this is the guiding principle for radiation protection for patients around the world. The products from Dentsply Sirona combine reliable diagnostics with radiation protection – taking the requirements of the ALARA principle into account.
