Without alignment devices, the reduction in beam size by rectangular collimation can make aiming the beam difficult. This aiming problem can result in “cone cuts” which necessitate retaking the image. In every-day practice, cone cuts are a common source of retakes no matter which type of collimator is used.
The Tru-Image™ Positioning System will virtually eliminate cone cuts from intraoral dental radiography. Fewer cone cuts means fewer retakes which will have a positive impact on the practices’ bottom line, the staff member’s embarrassment and the clinician’s annoyance. Decreased staff time and increased supplies needed means less expenses and higher profit.
