Hold Still

Have you ever done this? You carefully place a film, the patient bites winces and wiggles, you position the cone, then re-position when it starts to drift, run from the room, push the button, wait for the beep, run back, the patient hands you the film, the cone seems to have drifted again but you aren’t sure. Eventually you gather your exposed films trudge to the darkroom put them in the machine and then find that in fact the x-ray film is: cone cut, blurred, overlapped, the wrong tooth, or any and all of the above.

Fortunately there is an amazing new technology that eliminates many of the hassles and frustrations of taking radiographs in the traditional manner. The Nomad from Aribex is a handheld x-ray machine that allows you to stay in the room while you are exposing the image.

The ability to stay in the room while you take the image and better yet hold the tube eliminates most of the problems we encounter when taking an x-ray. How about that over-extended or out-of-adjustment arm that slowly slides south whenever you place it on the upper left? Or the arm that just doesn’t allow you to place the cone exactly parallel so you have the patient slump down, twist the chair and turn their head just so. No problem when you hold the cone.

In addition there are elderly or special needs patients who have limited mobility or may be confined to a wheelchair. With Nomad you do not need to drag them to the treatment room and maneuver them into the dental chair you can take an x-ray image anywhere. In fact as the ultimate benefit of mobility you can use Nomad in a nursing home or mobile clinic or on a humanitarian mission.
