Digitise your old x-rays easily

One stumbling block on the road to the paperless digital dental practice is what to do about your old films once you have a new digital x-ray system in your surgery.


The virtues of going digital is the subject of our Digital Imaging feature that commences on page 68, but of the dentists we spoke to, only one mentioned scanning in x-rays to remove manual records altogether from the practice.

This is ultimately the only solution available for a full paperless transition. The problem is finding a way to do this easily.

One solution is the new Nix RC 100, a small, compact x-ray film scanner which gives an immediate view of a developed x-ray film on your computer screen or a TV monitor which can then also be saved to disk. The resolution is equal to that of film.

The versatile system can be used to convert your old films to a digital image that can be stored and linked to your imaging and practice management software; or as an alternative to a digital x-ray system - you simply take a film x-ray, develop it and place it in the RC 100 for a digital image to appear on screen to help you diagnose and educate your patients. For the less trusting of computers, the latter provides the best of both worlds.

Nix also produce the RingRing2 X-ray film developer, a rapid developer which delivers in 62 seconds with a non-stop feed of x-rays mounted into a circular ring with built-in heater/agitator. The new model is of modular design construction which allows proper clean-out of chemical residuals. Longlife chemicals are used with the weekly addition of replenisher via a side entry. It is an ideal size for in-surgery usage and economically price as an alternative to manual enclosure.
