The PSPIX imaging plate scanner can be set up directly at the place of treatment due to its compact size. Therefore, the dentist does not need to move to another room to scan X-ray images. The large colour touchscreen makes the device intuitive, fast and easy to use. The imaging plates are kept in hygienic sleeves to protect them from light and contamination. The removable parts can be cleaned in a thermal disinfector or optionally in an autoclave.
