Evaluation and Testing of DEXIS Titanium Sensor

If you are following my Twitter feed, you know that I’ve been fortunate enough to be chosen to work with the next generation of DEXIS intraoral sensors, the DEXIS Titanium.
It’s incredible that even after all these years of improvements in digital sensors, companies continue to provide improvements.  However, that’s the great thing about technology and progress, no one is sitting around resting on their laurels.  If you are not moving forward, you’re moving backward.
The Titanium has a couple of things that I personally think are really outstanding.  The first is the wire.  While that may not seem like a big deal, the wire/cable is a critical failure point for many sensors.  To combat that, Titanium uses 4 different things to ensure good images and cable stability.
  1. Tough, durable external jacket better handles external forces such as biting, twisting, tugging and eliminates cable drag and tangling
  2. Inner protective shield made from tinned soft copper alloy for even more added strength
  3. Kevlar-reinforced fill protects inner power cables, and helps prevent kinks and twists of wires to safeguard signal performance
  4. Carefully selected signal wires and power lines often used for robotics, retain the best signal performance to deliver reliable imaging results over time 

The system also actualizes over the Internet so there is no need to keep CDs around anymore that correspond to each sensor.

I’ll be posting some images and other impressions as we get the test rolling.  Any questions or comments, hit the comment section.
