Huntsville Hospital has purchased a Planmeca intraoral digital x-Ray machine for use in the OR. The old unit was having lots of problems and the only processing system was an old style chemical dip-tank. This new unit is top notch. The sensor is a CCD type. The whole unit is on a mobile stand with the computer and flat screen monitor attached. I can't wait to use it. We can now view the radiographs in the OR on the computer screen and then take them back to the office on a memory stick.
I really like the design of Planmeca radiograph machines. We have several models in our offices (APDA in Huntsville and Madison). They are made in Finland. Check out their site for more information. Check out all the Finnish models, and I don't just mean the X-Ray machines.
