3 shape Trios

by Larry Emmott on July 25, 2017

in CAD CAM

I spent the morning training on the Trios intra-oral scanner from 3 Shape. it was very easy to use, comparable to the Carestream CS 3500. Both the software and the ease of capture was simple, much better than some older models and no powder. So far I have just been trained but will start using it in the office and see how it works in actual daily use.

How Many Sensors

by Larry Emmott on July 24, 2017

in Radiography

How many corded digital radiography sensors do you need? To understand the answer to this question ask yourself how many dark rooms or automatic processors did I need? The answer of course is one.

A corded sensor is not just a film substitute it is a processor substitute as well. Think of it as a reusable film that processes an x-ray in four seconds and then can be used again. If you could run your office with one automatic film processor you can run it with one corded sensor.

The impression that you need multiple sensors is just not true. However as a last resort, if you try using one sensor and it just doesn’t work, they will sell you another one!
