Dexis Platinum sensor offers practitioners two modes to capture radiographs: High resolution mode which captures radiographs at 0.5 mega pixels (846 x 662) and the ultra resolution which captures at 2.0 mega pixels (1692 x 1324). By default the software is setup to capture at 0.5 which limits the resolution of the sensor to about 12 lp/mm (line pairs per mm). Switching the settings to 2.0 mega pixels can give you higher resolution radiographs with approx.18 (lp/mm) resolution. This allows structures to appear crisp and overall easier visualization of structures when zooming. If you are doing endodontic work and you prefer to have better visualization of the tip of your endodontic file then the higher resolution will give you better radiographs. Other diagnostic procedures might benefit as well. Continue reading
In this video tutorial we’ll see the steps on how to export a 3D model from Maya to display it inside a book on the iPad. Getting the exporter model to work was a bit tricky but it finally did.
We used a DentSply XCP ORA film holder as an example to demonstrate poly counts, textures, and light setup as part of the upcoming oral radiology interactive textbook for the iPad. Feel free to drop us a comment or share the video with your friends.
Presented by Franz Pfeiffer, Technical University Munich, Germany. ECDMFR 2012
The presentation reviewed development of phase contrast radiography and shows the difference from conventional radiography. Very interesting research for clinical application in medical imaging.

Dr. Wisam Al-Rawi, Dr. Sorin Teich. Oral presentation of the study comparing different physical properties of latest CMOS intraoral sensors that was presented at the EADMFR congress meeeting in Leipzig, Germany. More information about the study will be available in the published article. For best viewing experience make sure you set the video to display at 1080P in YouTube window. Enjoy the video!
I demoed some of the work we did for Apple iOS devices like the apps and the new iBook project. The event was successful and Apple folks liked the presentation. We look forward to bring the Oral Radiology iBook to students. No ETA yet but we got great people on board who will be helping out make the project a success. For now you can hit the link to watch the video. Thanks to everyone who helped with that!

We have been experimenting with Apple iBook Author, a software that lets authors publish highly interactive iBooks on the iPad, we were able to see how this technology can be a game changer for learning and teaching.
The video is a proof of concept of how the final book will use some of Apple technology to innovate in oral radiology education. Video after the break. Continue reading
In the 3D Dentistry section of the February issue of Dental Economics we had the opportunity to talk about 3D radiology and dentistry. The interview included topics such as teaching challenges of 3D imaging and CBCT volume navigation, the iPhone apps for teaching oral radiology, incidental findings on CBCT images, CBCT systems selection, and other topics.

With great pleasure, we will be presenting the most up-to-date in depth evaluation of the physical properties of latest CMOS digital intraoral sensors. The evaluation will establish a benchmark to compare the digital sensors.
The following sensors have been evaluated
- XDR (E2V)
- Kodak (RVG 6100)
- Dexis Platinum
- Schick Elite
- ImageWorks EVA+
- Sirona XIOS
- Gendex GXS-700
Don’t miss this exciting presentation at the XIIIth European Congress of Dentomaxillofacial Radiology meeting in Leipzig, Germany which will be held on June 13-16, 2012. More details will be provided as soon as we hear back from the EADMFR
