Apixia PSP Phosphor Plate Scanner
The latest in phosphor plate technology now brings cost-effective intraoral digital radiography to any size practice. Experience the power of digital while preserving the operational familiarity and flexibility of film.
Digital radiography has revolutionized dental X-ray procedures with fast imaging, chemical-free processing and extended image analysis capabilities. But the substantial initial investment, significant ongoing maintenance costs and fear of procedural differences and workflow interruption have kept this technology out of reach for many practices. Until now!
The Apixia Phosphor Plate Scanner System is a comprehensive system that delivers all the power of digital radiography to your entire practice without changing your standard workflow and without the need for staff retraining. The Apixia system is small enough to be deployed almost anywhere in your practice, even chairside, but powerful and reliable enough to support even large group practices. And the entire system costs less than one digital sensor from most manufacturers.
Phosphor plates (PSPs) offer the following significant advantages over wired digital sensors:
- Thinner than film and flexible, improving patient comfort and enabling precise positioning
- Fully compatible with your existing film holders and radiographic methodology—no need to invest in additional specialized holders or training
- Larger imaging area aids diagnosis
- Lower radiation levels and shorter exposure times are required to produce diagnostic images
- Reusable hundreds of times
- Replacement cost is nominal by comparison
Apixia’s innovative and easy-to-use top-loading design scans the plate and displays the resulting X-ray image in about 10 seconds. The scanner also erases the plate in the process, making it ready for reuse immediately.
