I am a big fan of the Nomad handheld x-ray, this is why. The Nomad increases dental office productivity, since it reduces the time required to take a series of x-rays. The Nomad x-rays system requires no bulky arms, backing plates for walls, special cabinets or costly electrical hookups. In fact, no installation is needed other than plugging in a small recharger unit. Dental treatment rooms no longer need to be designed around the x-ray device.
Because it easily moves from treatment room to treatment room, one Nomad can take the place of several conventional wall-mounted x-ray units in a typical dental office environment, saving dentists money when purchasing capital equipment.
These innovations also allow x-rays to be taken without moving the patient, so that patients in wheelchairs, for example, do not have to be moved to the dental chair. Bed-ridden patients with dental issues can now have care on a level that was previously not possible. Sedated patients in oral surgery now can be x-rayed without being repositioned. Most operating rooms do not have wall-mounted x-rays, but now x-rays can be taken during procedures without moving the patient.
