Computer Digital Radiography (CDR)

Digital x-rays can now be taken using phosphorous plates that transmit the image directly into our computer. This permanently stores the image in your file and allows comparisons of past x-rays with current ones. The doctor, then, can see the progression of dental changes over time. The large computer image from the digital x-rays helps the doctor see greater detail and enables the doctor to zoom in on a specific area of the tooth. An important advantage to this new technology is that it reduces the amount of radiation by 90%. Digital x-rays are also faster. The digital image only takes a minute or two to appear on the monitor. In addition, this new technology is friendly to the environment since no chemicals are needed for developing the image. digital xray

OralCDXOralCDx

OralCDx represents a breakthrough in oral cancer detection, a test that will allow you and your dentist to improve the prognosis of a disease that has remained unchanged for the last 50 years.

OralCDx is the first computerized brush biopsy system. It allows dentists to quickly, painlessly and reliably detect oral cancer in its earliest, most easily treatable stage.

Originally developed as part of the “Star Wars” missile defense program, the OralCDx computer system includes a neural network-based image processing system specifically adapted to detect abnormalities unique to oral brush biopsy samples.
