Name: The Clinical Advantages of Phosphor Plate Digital Radiography
Location: , ,
The change from analog to digital radiography is still not complete in the US despite the many advantages of digital imaging. The principle reason is the high cost involved.
Additionally, some have converted to digital and then been dissatisfied with the equipment or results. The CR scientific staff has surveyed the profession and accomplished significant research to assist you in understanding the distinct strengths and limitations of current digital radiography technology.
The majority of dentists in North America use digital radiography systems with hard sensors (CMOS) that produce immediate images. However, scanned phosphor plate technology (PSP) dominates in many parts of the world and other areas of medicine due to its film-like versatility and lower cost. The unique features of phosphor plate digital radiography make it worth consideration, especially if hard sensors have been problematic in your practice.
The following report provides survey data on current use of digital radiography, a review of the technology, advantages and limitations and clinical tips.
