There are many myths swirling around dentistry regarding digital radiography. Sometimes it is difficult to get straight answers. However I have a great “go to” source that always gives me the straight scoop. XDR Radiography.
Whenever a dentist is dissatisfied with the quality of his/her digital radiography images and he/she automatically blames the sensor. However sometimes the problem isn’t the sensor at all it is the monitor. Here are the monitor recommendations from XDR.
- Resolution 1024 x 768 or greater
- Aspect Ratio Wide Screen
- Contrast Ratio 1000:1 (real contrast not virtual or dynamic)
- Brightness 300 minimum (candela/sq m or NITs)
- Dots Per Inch 96 DPI
- Dual monitors Yes
Wide screen and dual monitors are personal preference.
