SIDEXIS 4 update gives users many new functions and technical improvements

New Products

At the end of last year, the SIDEXIS 4 imaging software received the internationally renowned Red Dot Award Best of the Best in the "Communication Design" category for its outstanding user friendliness. The new 4.1.3 software update from Dentsply Sirona Imaging now combines additional functions for users with technical modifications that further optimize the practice workflow. Especially in combination with the ORTHOPHOS SL, the SIDEXIS 4 software forms a highly functional and efficient unit. The update also offers advantages for networking with practice management systems and implantology planning or orthodontic analysis programs.

New functions make it easier to use/h3>

The software update now makes it possible to connect intraoral cameras from other manufacturers, as well as via Windows Driver Model. When imported images without an imaging date are provided, the user can enter the information manually to have the images displayed chronologically in the timeline. The user is provided with a complete patient history from all intraoral, panoramic, and 3D X-rays, digital camera images, and face scan data. The update also provides additional image information: The anatomical region and external image type are displayed for every image. To facilitate work for users, it will now be possible to use copy and paste to insert images into another application, such as image processing or patient management. The program also allows images to be moved retroactively to allocate them to another patient.

No more switching between SICAT Suite applications/h3>

The integration of the SICAT Suite software package with the SICAT Function and SICAT AIR applications into the SIDEXIS 4 interface represents a considerable added value for users. SICAT Function allows the three-dimensional visualization of jaw movements for the diagnosis and treatment of craniomandibular dysfunction (CMD). Users can use SICAT Air to order protrusion appliances to treat obstructive sleep apnea. Planning data created by the two software applications are displayed in the timeline and from there can be opened again directly in the SICAT Suite. The package is integrated into the phase bar of SIDEXIS 4 with its own "Plan&Treat Phase." The applications can therefore be selected directly and treatment planning can be started. The loading times for the required 3D image data were reduced by 50 percent.

SIDEXIS 4 – state-of-the-art technology/h3>

The technical aspects of the SIDEXIS 4.1.3 software version were expanded to Windows 10 and other operating systems. Instead of the previously used SQL Server 2008 R2 database managing system, the SQL Server 2014 is now installed both during initial installation of SIDEXIS 4 and in the case of an update.
